ROH INVESTIGATING BULLY RAY INCIDENT
RASSLIN NEWS-071519
At a Series of House Shows, Both a Fan and a Promotion May Have Gone Too Far

Ring of Honor management is investigating an incident between Bully Ray and a fan at the State of the Art event. They did release this statement: "Ring of Honor prides itself on providing a fun and entertaining environment for both our fans and wrestlers to experience professional wrestling at the highest level. Fans are encouraged to cheer, boo, and chant during the show while wrestlers interact both positively and in rivalry, as that is the engagement that makes the ROH experience what it is. Wrestlers’ interacting with fans is core to the experience, however, under no circumstance should any of our athletes or staff confront or engage fans outside the bounds of this entertainment experience or outside the bounds of the area that hosts this experience. We are still in the process of investigating this matter as well as reviewing and assessing internal security protocols to ensure a safe environment for all fans and athletes. All of our athletes and staff will also be trained and reminded of our policies and protocols for fan interaction and appropriate behavior in all situations. To our amazing and wonderful fans, we apologize for the matter that transpired this past weekend as it does not reflect who we are as an organization or how we hope to engage with our fans."

According to fan Josh Ketch he was at the show and claimed security brought him backstage to be confronted and intimidated by Bully Ray (Mark LoMonaco) for heckling The Allure (Velvet Sky, Mandy Leon, and Angelina Love) over the course of several matches. Ketch claims he wasn't being vulgar and was both struck and spat on by Leon in addition to being insulted by Sky. LoMonaco released a statement on Twitter admitting he did talk to Ketch backstage but wasn’t trying to intimidate him and was merely sticking up for The Allure after Ketch crossed the line. He also stated that Ketch was out of line during both nights of the Pacific Northwest tour. Shy and Leon accused Ketch of verbal sexual harassment on Twitter. Love also tweeted that his comments were sexual and verbal harassment, adding "Fans don’t act the way you did. I looked directly in your eyes. You had evil intent in them." As the story broke reports have surfaced that Ketch was out of line and has been an issue at other shows in the area. In my opinion you have a right to say whatever you want because you bought a ticket but that’s no excuse to get out of line.
