At Ring of Honor shows, fans will toss streamers into the ring, signifying their favorites or a great match or their enthusiasm for the product.
In the case of ROH wrestler Kenny King, roses could be filling the ring instead.
King, 36, of Las Vegas via Orlando was on the reality show “The Bachelorette” on ABC. He was one of the bachelors courting bachelorette Rachel Lindsay.
Each week she would hand a rose to the man she chose in this elimination style contest, until one remained.
Never miss a local story.
King did not win the competition, but he did win the hearts of many watching.
Viewers enjoyed and rallied around him, a single father devoted to his 10-year-old daughter Makenzi, who also became a hit on the TV show.
