Ring of Honor is scheduled to make its return during WrestleMania weekend. The company has been on hiatus since the Final Battle pay-per-view. ROH fans were expecting a new business model and some new faces. What they got was something entirely different.
Tony Khan announced on last night’s AEW Dynamite that he has bought Ring of Honor. With their big comeback show happening next month, there is precious little time to make some huge decisions. If the show is to go on, Khan will have a wealth of talented wrestlers to pick and choose from.
The card for Supercard of Honor was not completed at the time Tony Khan purchased Ring of Honor. The promotion was planning to use AEW talent but wasn’t sure if they could get a deal done. That problem is now non-existent. Fightful Select offered more insight into the state of the ROH event.
“Talent that is booked for the April Supercard of Honor show was not and have not been briefed as of yet, and learned about it by watching Dynamite with the rest of the world. There were very few people remaining under contract, but they retained PR representative, and had planned dates through the end of the year to tape television. We’ve not been told whether or not those will continue or if the Sinclair syndication is a part of the deal or not.
Before the announcement, the card for Supercard of Honor was not done, and those on the ROH side told us that they weren’t confident that AEW talent would even be able to appear on the show. Obviously that won’t be an issue now. Another wrinkle is that IMPACT’s Deonna Purrazzo is ROH Women’s Champion, and has been scheduled for the show since winning the title.”
The big shakeup in the wrestling landscape could mean AEW and Impact talent appear at a Ring of Honor show. There are a ton of possibilities and a huge tape library filled with the early years of some of the biggest names in wrestling. Tony Khan will have a lot to sort through as he decides on the future of ROH.
