Ring of Honor has been on hiatus since the Final Battle pay-per-view. The company decided to reorganize and restructure to better adapt to a changing wrestling market. The promotion will make their return during WrestleMania weekend with Supercard of Honor. It is sure to be one of the more anticipated non-WWE events of the week.

ROH also recently announced their own Hall of Fame. The first inductee will be announced early next week. Several further inductions will help to fill ROH TV leading up to the big event.

Many fans have wondered how Ring of Honor did in the television ratings. It has always been tricky to figure out because ROH airs on different Sinclar Broadcasting-owned stations at various times in different markets throughout the U.S. Dave Meltzer got some info on how the show was doing for this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“Someone in ad sales was able to get ROH viewership info. The show was getting about 400,000 viewers per week in syndication on the various Sinclair channels and 175,000 were in the 25-54 age group.”

For comparison, Impact Wrestling has drawn over 500,000 viewers every week except once since December 10, 2021. Impact airs on AXS, a cable network available in about 50 million American households. ROH is much harder for many fans to find and often airs in strange timeslots.

Ring of Honor has an interesting future ahead. We won’t know how the relaunch goes until it happens. Until then, fans are hoping they can come up with something new and exciting.
