Rob Feinstein was set to meet a 14-year-old boy in which he had been in contact through instant messages. They even made plans to hang out at the boy's house as his sister was partying in New York, and his parents were away. Following the address the 'boy' gave him, Rob arrived at his house, but he instead met with news cameras waiting for him there. He then drove away and later resigned from both Ring of Honor and RFVideo.
The incident was published by some news outlets, and the scandal made Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) end its talent-sharing agreement with ROH. It also suddenly withdrew all of its contracted wrestlers from their prior commitments to perform in ROH shows.
