Bryan Danielson is one of the most established names in the world of professional wrestling right now. He has earned worldwide fame and acclaim thanks to his incredible in-ring skills, displaying it in numerous pro wrestling companies over the last two decades. It seems Danielson commented on Tony Khan purchasing ROH as well.
AEW President Tony Khan shocked the world as he announced that he has purchased the entirety of Ring Of Honor on this past week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. It was said he paid a lot of money for ROH as well.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Danielson talked about Tony Khan purchasing Ring of Honor. Bryan Danielson stated that he wants the acquisition to help AEW and not detract from it in any way.
“Tony had actually brought up that it was a possibility to me a couple of weeks ago. He didn’t know if it was going to happen or not. I was like, ‘that’s really exciting, but it’s also interesting.’ Part of me wonders about there being too much wrestling on TV already and what is it going to look like? Is it just going to be for the tape library? I don’t have any indication if, say, he starts running Ring of Honor, what does that look like?
I was trying to come up with ideas, as far as, what can we do with Ring of Honor that would enhance AEW rather than detract from it or add another hour of TV or whatever. I came up with some ideas, but nothing solid. Tony is a really good thinker about professional wrestling and interesting thinker in general who can manage to juggle so many things in his mind at once. I’ll be interested to see how it turns out to be.”
Even the former owner of Ring Of Honor reacted to Tony Khan purchasing the promotion. We will have to wait and see whether AEW will benefit from ROH’s acquisition or not.
