While speaking to the Baltimore Sun, Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff talked about the rumors of WWE wanting to buyout Ring of Honor and claimed that there is no story behind the rumors.
“It was not a story. It was not a story when it came out. I think people want to make a story out of nothing. I’m very open in conversations with very many different wrestling promotions. And I think sometimes because I don’t share a lot of stuff, we’re very private about what we do. I think it raises speculation. I think this thing with the WWE really started because we were in conversations about content for Kevin Owens’ DVD. There was a lot of back and forth between the two companies. I think that was the seed that drove that story.”
As previously noted, there were rumors a couple week’s back that WWE was looking to buyout the company and use their tape library for upcoming DVDs and WWE Network content.
