According exclusively to PWInsider.com, Hunter “Delirious” Johnson has taken over as the head of Ring of Honor’s creative direction, effective immediately. The ROH locker room was informed on Saturday.
Jim Cornette & ROH came to the mutual decision and Cornette will remain with the company in a backstage role as well as assist Johnson in anyway needed.
Cornette will also be written out of ROH storylines as an authority figure with the angle where he was attacked backstage by Jay Lethal after the no contest with ROH Champion Kevin Steen. ROH intend to use their website to explain the changes with Cornette’s exit from his authority figure role.
