ROH has been on break for several months, and many fans were unsure if the company would ever return as promised. Fightful has discovered more about their ambitions for the future. Ring of Honor is expected to return on April 1 for Supercard of Honor.

Several wrestlers from outside companies have been hired for the Supercard of Honor event, but they had to acquire approval first. On Tuesday afternoon, Fightful received news from sources across different wrestling businesses that overtures for a prospective sale or cooperation had been made.

Aside from such reports, there have been enquiries about the cost of acquiring the company in the previous two years, even before the sabbatical. In the wrestling industry, there was a suggestion that the price point will be substantial in 2020.

When Fightful inquired within ROH, they were told that there were “far more bidders than expected” and that numerous wrestling businesses and a few media companies had been involved in conversations at one point or another.


While these figures are far from certain, there have been rumors of three different price ranges in the last two years. A source high up in another company heard directly from a person who claimed to be in talks about buying ROH in early 2020 that a price point of $40 million was being discussed, with a source close to the company reporting they heard the price was half that.

However, a source close to ROH told Fightful that an independently rich fan who wasn’t in the wrestling business made an attempt to buy it more recently, and was quoted $30 million for half of the organization.

ROH has not confirmed these figures, or even the existence of these discussions. Several wrestlers who had previously worked with ROH or were associated to the company had heard that a prospective sale was still on the table.
