ROH Star Turns Heel On AEW Rampage

Reigning ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham turned heel and aligned himself with Tully Blanchard on the latest edition of AEW Rampage.

Gresham was teaming with Lee Moriarty to face The Gates of Agony, who were already managed by Blanchard. Agony members Kaun and Toa Liona isolated Moriarty during the bout’s early stages before the underdog babyface went to make a big hot tag to Gresham.

That’s when the turn happened.

Jonathan refused the tag, stepped off the ring apron and then hugged Tully at ringside. Later, during a follow up promo, Gresham bitched about AEW’s treatment of him since Tony Khan purchased Ring Of Honor – that’s why he’s decided to link up with Blanchard.

The heel turn came across well on TV, but there are some worries that All Elite continues to dilute its product by featuring so many moving parts; IMPACT was previously an affiliate, then they booked the major Forbidden Door pay-per-view alongside NJPW.

Now, ROH is getting some valuable minutes on top programming like Dynamite and Rampage.

Khan went on to book Gresham vs. Moriarty for the ROH Title at next week’s Fyter Fest.
