“Ring of Honor is still slated to tape episodes of their weekly TV series this weekend in Baltimore and the 12/11 Final Battle PPV is still on. That PPV will very much an end-point chapter in Ring of Honor as whatever form the promotion ends up taking going forward will be a very different animal.”
Moreover, the company intends to hold its “Supercard of Honor” PPV during the WrestleMania weekend next year in Dallas, Texas. ROH’s weekly television programming, on the other hand, will continue during the aforementioned hiatus period.
