The ROH Dojo is a professional wrestling school operated by the American professional wrestling promotion Ring Of Honor in Bristol, Pennsylvania. Originally named the ROH Wrestling Academy, the current name was adopted in August 2016, when the school reopened after a hiatus.[1] Delirious operates as the head trainer of the school with Cheeseburger and Will Ferrara as his assistants.[1] previous head trainers of the academy include former ROH World Champions CM Punk, Austin Aries, and Bryan Danielson. From 2005 to 2008, ROH used a "Top of the Class" trophy to promote the students on the main show; while wrestlers win and lose the Trophy in matches, the School's head trainer chooses the winners.
