Steve Corino's appearance as a guest trainer at the WWE Performance Center was very well received and while the contract hasn't been finalized, there is a deal in place for Steve to start with WWE as a coach in January when his contract expires with Ring of Honor.
As we've reported in the past, ROH knows they're going to have to spend a lot to keep their guys who have deals coming up at the end of December and it was decided to not even try to match WWE's offer for Corino. ROH would rather save that money in hopes of retaining other guys. They know they won't be able to keep everybody.
There are a lot of contracts within ROH coming due on December 31, 2016 and a lot of guys want to go to WWE. ROH must choose wisely on who to fight to keep.
