PWInsider is reporting that Hunter ‘Delirious’ Johnston has taken over as the head of ROH creative.
Jim Cornette had been mainly spearheading ROH’s creative direction with Delirious assisting him. However, fans have been critical of the booking of the company and it seems that Cornette and ROH have come to a mutual agreement for him to step back from the creative side of things.
Cornette will stay with the ROH in a backstage role which will include production and it is thought that he will assist Delirious with the creative direction of the company if needed.
It also seems that Cornette will not be used as an on-screen character going forward. ROH’s website posted an article after the ‘Killer Instinct’ show in New Jersey on Saturday that Lethal had attacked him backstage. The article also said that Cornette was taken to hospital with a severe back injury and ROH will likely use that to write him off TV as the ‘Executive Producer’.
