"Well which way is it?! Do you have fans expecting certain singles matches out of us that you promised or do they not know who the f--k any of us are and it doesn't matter if we do a damn 8 man tag?! It's all well and fine if the 25 people there don't know who we are, but don't tell us something and then completely change your words. That statement was the breaking point for Davey and Tony. So we agreed to work a tag, Davey and myself against 2 of his guys, who I wont mention because after all the sh-t talking they've done in the last 24 hours they don't deserve any more publicity. We take a pay cut, yet still enough to cover our gas and all of our food for the day, put our gear on, got paid and walked out the back door.
"Was what we did wrong and unethical? Perhaps. Was what we did completely justified and reasonable? Perhaps. The fact of the matter was we felt disrespected and so "give and you shall receive". The point being that sometimes you have to be the bad guy and stand up for what you believe in. I'll be completely honest in saying the entire thing made me feel really uncomfortable and I felt a sense of guilt. Am I going to apologize? Absolutely not, because you have to live and die by the sword. Regardless of regrets, one must stand by their decisions and at the end of the day a guy disrespected two of my close friends that I look up to and that's simply, morally wrong."
Jacobs and Strife have stated that they contacted both Ring of Honor and Sinclair Broadcasting about the incident, and both companies have stated that Davey Richards "has been done with ROH for a few weeks now and is not being brought back."
