WWE’s “New Era” suspiciously similar to Ring of Honor’s “2009 Era”

Is WWE’s New Era somewhat derivative of Ring of Honor circa 2009? You be the judge.

Although it is being touted as a revolutionary paradigm shift for sports-entertainment, WWE’s so-called “New Era” bears some peculiar resemblances to the “2009 Era” of Ring of Honor (ROH).

A careful analysis of the “New Era” talent roster suggests that WWE might be inspired by — if not outright plagiarizing — ROH personalities and storylines from seven years ago.

You may dismiss this notion as a paranoid conspiracy theory, but look at the evidence:

  • Kevin Owens looks remarkably similar to retired ROH star Kevin Steen, who now runs a zoo in Australia
  • Cesaro is practically a mirror image of ROH mainstay Claudio Castagnioli, although the latter would never have considered wearing a tear-away tuxedo
  • Sami Zayn has a similar body type and ring style as El Generico, despite being Canadian instead of Mexican
  • AJ Styles is a Ring of Honor alum, who later had a long tenure with Nashville-based TNA (Tits’N’Ass) Wrestling
  • Kalisto is obviously Chris Hero under a mask
  • Roman Reigns was a top star in Ring of Honor under the ring name “Tyler Black”

According to sources within WWE, the company plans to launch a “Newer Era,” which will feature baby-versus-baby action.
