- There was a "wrestler's court" held backstage before the September 19th Ring of Honor tapings in Texas. "Wrestler's court" was something done backstage in WWE when a person would be accused of something and put on trial. If they were found guilty, they had to buy beer for everyone or something like that.
The ROH "wrestler's court" was for referee Gino Colucci and apparently the charges against him were really minor. BJ Whitmer acted as the judge while Michael Elgin apparently acted as the defense attorney for Colucci, who ended up cleared of the charges.
However, ROH CEO Joe Koff found out about the court and issued a very strong statement, telling the talents to never do it again, especially before a TV taping as Koff feels the talents should be concentrating on their performances that night.
