"The Mecca” Brian Johnson may be relatively new to ROH, but the cocky competitor has been wrestling on the independent circuit for 13 years. Johnson caught the eye of ROH officials at tryout camps and was a member of the first class at the new ROH Dojo in the summer of 2018.
Johnson was the number one seed in the 2019 Top Prospect Tournament in part due to his previous success in ROH and Future of Honor; Johnson has competed in several singles and tag matches in ROH against more established competitors and has held his own. Following a shocking upset in the first round, Johnson has gone to new lengths to gain attention, taking over a live stream in Milwaukee, interrupting Ian and Quinn on ROH Television, and being a divisive figure in the locker room.
Johnson is certainly not at a loss for words when it comes to talking about how great he is and many ROH stars have not only heard him but also believe him, as Johnson possesses all of the skills to one day become a champion. While Johnson’s credentials certainly establish that he deserves to be in ROH, will he find the sense to listen to mentors like PJ Black to help him take himself to the next level? Time will tell!
It looks like the irascible Johnson will have one less thing to complain about.
