It has been reported on ProWrestling.net that Ring of Honor has informed Mike Mondo that he “will no longer be booked”.
Mondo has been a polarizing figure since joining ROH full-time in 2012 after impressing in a number of TV matches, especially against Matt Taven. After a slow start to his time in the company, he seemed to settle in and had numerous entertaining matches.
The former WWE tag team champion was stopped in his tracks at ‘Glory By Honor XI’ where he broke his fibula after a dive off the entrance way onto his opponent Mike Bennett. Mondo continued and finished the match, much to his credit.
Mondo returned at the March 3 TV tapings, losing to Jimmy Jacobs. He went on to lose to Jacobs and Jimmy Rave at ‘WAR’ alongside Grizzly Redwood before being defeated once again by Steve Corino’s men in an eight-man tag match at ‘Supercard of Honor VII’. He was scheduled to face Roderick Strong and Mike Bennett in a triple threat at ‘Border Wars’ but was withdrawn from the match after a ‘training injury’.
ProWrestling.net’s report claimed that ROH’s decision came after Mondo was deemed in no condition to participate at a recent ROH clinic. Mondo is yet to comment publically about the report but regardless of people’s views on him as a wrestler, ROHWorld thanks Mike for all of the effort he put in to entertaining us, the fans.
