Ring of Honor announced today that Dalton Castle has signed a new contract with the promotion.
The former World Heavyweight Champion decided to not renew his contract with Ring of Honor, which expired at the end of 2020. However, he remained working for the promotion on a per-date deal while continuing talks.
He took part in a match at last Friday’s 19th Anniversary pay-per-view event. Following that bout, Castle stated that he was not going anywhere and he was staying in ROH.
ROH issued the following statement on the signing:
Ring of Honor is pleased to announce that Dalton Castle has re-signed with the company. There had been speculation in recent months regarding Castle’s future, but after his victory over Josh Woods at the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view on Friday, the former ROH World Champion told backstage correspondent Quinn McKay: “I ain’t going nowhere. I’m staying in Ring of Honor.”
He joined Ring of Honor in 2013 and became the top champion by beating Cody Rhodes to win the world title. While in contract talks, Castle started the process of locking down the trademark rights to his ring name.
