AEW owner Tony Khan purchased Ring of Honor (ROH) early in 2022, and ever since then, questions have been swirling around the ROH brand about what would the future look like after their “Supercard of Honor XV” and “Death Before Dishonor” pay-per-views.
Appearing on the “In the Kliq” podcast, Khan gave some clarity on the future plans of the promotion.
“The ROH pay-per-view events this year have been the most successful couple of Ring of Honor pay-per-view events in many years and actually they would both rank in the top, probably three or four ROH pay-per-view events ever. So this has been the best year Ring of Honor’s ever had on pay-per-view, which is pretty amazing.”
With the success of ROH’s pay-per-views, this has given Khan leverage to potentially cut a television deal for the promo, and conversations have already started with Warner Bros. Discovery.
“If we can get the weekly TV going again, it would be even stronger. I would love to bring Ring of Honor back on a weekly basis, and it’s a conversation I’m having with Warner Bros. Discovery pretty frequently, and I have to say something that’s gonna be really helpful is the success Ring of Honor has had on PPV.”
Warner Bros. Discovery has already done work with ROH before on the “Death Before Dishonor” pay-per-view, which has helped Khan in the possibility of a television deal for the company.
“I think they got a great look at how much opportunity there is in the Ring of Honor business, and how many great wrestling fans there are. Not just fans for AEW, because obviously AEW is a top priority for TBS and TNT, but also now for Ring of Honor. Bring ROH and AEW together, lots of positives and synergies.”
