Some were confused by WWE not signing Jay and Mark Briscoe, especially at a time when they seem intent on putting the screws to Ring of Honor.
We heard some people in ROH were fine with the promotion having to make a major investment in two talents, especially at a time when finances are tight.
WWE really blames ROH for the proliferation of non-WWE events that have sprung up each year during Wrestlemania week and so ROH is being specifically targeted when it comes to plans to use NXT as WWE's version of a “super indy.” WWE is on good terms with DGUSA as DGUSA lets guys out of their contracts whenever WWE wants them.
WWE still plans to sign away several more of ROH's guys, but if ROH wants to overspend to keep any of them, WWE isn't going to match the offers.
Another reason ROH has a bullseye on its chest is the fact that it's owned by a decently sized television company, so WWE views it far more as a threat to NXT than other smaller groups like PWG and Evolve.
