Ring of Honor is trying to find a way to keep both Roderick Strong and Moose but feel it will be much tougher to convince Roderick to stay. While WWE has interest in both, they’re much higher on Moose but he’s all business and ROH feels he’ll stay if they offer more than what NXT would pay. Roderick, on the other hand, has wanted into WWE for years and would consider making the jump even if the initial developmental deal is far less than he’d make by staying with ROH.
WWE is expected to offer both Strong and Moose deals when their contracts are up with Ring of Honor. We’ve seen ROH manage to retain some of their guys recently even when WWE wanted them. As for WWE, with the brand split about to go down and so many NXT guys being called up later this year, WWE knows they’ll need to restock the cupboards.
