Ring Of Honor is growing to become even more of a hot commodity in the pro wrestling world. With the success of All In which was largely backed by ROH interests, Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks have helped bring a lot of eyes to ROH.
WWE obviously likes to have a lot of footage and they are also very happy with signing top names as well as eliminating competition. Dave Meltzer discussed on Wrestling Observer Radio how WWE is most likely to deal with the ROH threat if they take any action at this point.
“Anything’s possible. WWE never buys anything I mean for big money they just never offer that’s just not their way of doing things. And I can’t imagine that Ring Of Honor wouldn’t be sold for a cheap price. So you can’t say never and there was talk of it before and of course, WWE will have so much money but they just don’t, they’re not like UFC like UFC just aggressively tries to buy other companies and WWE doesn’t do that.”
“They may buy Progress or ICW if they want to take it over. But if they do they’ll probably close it down. So why would you buy Ring Of Honor? I guess the tape library has value for sure.”
“So I think the only way they would get it is if nobody wanted it… it would be shut down. So you better hope that they don’t buy it because it’s just going to cost more jobs.”
Only time will tell what WWE does with their new indie competition that is really making a lot of noise. But it doesn’t seem like WWE would want to keep the company open if they did take over.
