Bully Ray choosing ROH simply came down to the fact that the promotion reminded him of ECW. The former world heavyweight champion had other offers on the table. One of those options was TNA. The promotion wanted him back to fill in a role near the top of the card. Impact Wrestling needed some star power because Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy were on the way out the door. Bully Ray chose to sign with Ring of Honor instead. So, TNA officials scrambled to sign Alberto Del Rio. The former WWE star immediately started a title feud with Bobby Lashley.
