Ian Riccaboni On Which Wrestlers He’d Like To See Wrestle For Ring Of Honor

During an appearance on WINCLY, ROH Commentator Ian Riccaboni spoke on which wrestlers that were recently released by the WWE that he’d like to see come aboard with Ring Of Honor. Here’s what he had to say:

I’ve never called a Mike Bennett match. Some of my first events were when he and Matt [Taven] won the IWP tag titles, and then subsequently, the ROH tag titles. My first live event that I got to call without training wheels was the first one after Mike Bennett [laughs]. It would be really cool to call a Mike Bennett match especially with Maria.

I think [Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins] are two awesome personalities. I think they’re equally awesome in wrestling as well. Those would be, hypothetically, interesting folks to see in a ROH ring. I don’t want to make any inferences or anything like that and I’m not, but I’ve never called matches from [Ryder and Hawkins] either.

I think when things open up it’s gonna be an interesting landscape. I think guys like Colt Cabana showed there’s no right way to be an independent wrestler. It wouldn’t surprise me if some of the folks took the Cody path. Maybe they aren’t committed to someone right away and they go six months until they commit somewhere. I’ve thought about a lot of the wrestlers out there and I hope everyone lands on their feet.

But I’ll just say it was always really fun calling Lio Rush matches. It was always a hope that I would get to call a Kingdom match involving Mike Bennett and Maria. But it would be pretty cool to call something with [Ryder and Hawkins].
