Hunter “Delirious” Johnston has taken over as the head of Ring of Honor‘s creative direction effective immediately. The ROH locker room was informed on Saturday at the promotion’s Rahway, NJ debut.
Jim Cornette and ROH came to a mutual decision on the change I am told. Cornette will remain with the company in a backstage role and will assist Johnson as well as working on production and logistics.
Cornette will be written out of ROH storylines with an angle where he was attacked backstage by an irate Jay Lethal in the fallout of the no contest with Kevin Steen in Rahway.
ROH will be running stories on their website to explain the changes with Cornette’s exit from his authority figure role.
