Ring Of Honor surprised fans when it announced that it was going to undergo a reimagining last year. This led to the company releasing all of its talents at the same time. Tony Khan also made an interesting promise as well recently.
AEW President Tony Khan previously announced that he had purchased the entirety of Ring Of Honor. Since then, his purchase of the company has become one of the biggest topics of discussion in the pro wrestling world.
With Tony Khan’s purchase of ROH, many fans wondered whether AEW and ROH will have crossover shows or not. While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan talked about AEW wrestlers appearing in ROH. Khan promised that some AEW wrestlers will appear in ROH.
“In two weeks, it’ll be a very crowded Friday of wrestling. I hadn’t scheduled this pay-per-view, the Ring of Honor Supercard, but I really think that is important for me because they’ve sold tickets and made a commitment to fans to still do the show. I see it as a transitional show in many ways, and I’m really excited about it because it’s the first show under the new management, and it’s also a transition show before I relaunch what I hope to be a really great, new Ring of Honor TV product. A weekly series, wherever it does air or stream.
This is a great opportunity to put our own stamp on it, but also pay respects to the great Ring of Honor traditions, and the great history of Ring of Honor with some of the top stars from recent Ring of Honor, and some of the great wrestlers who’ve been in Ring of Honor historically. Am I gonna be able to take everybody from AEW and bring them there? No. But I think there’s a very cool way to use some of the great wrestlers in AEW who are going to be available and make this a great show.”
Tony Khan will also personally book the ROH Supercard of Honor event next month. FTR vs The Briscoes was also announced for the Supercard of The Honor event, so it remains to be seen how many AEW stars will compete in ROH as well.
