AEW has certainly seen a lot of changes ever since it debuted back in 2019. Throughout its ups and downs, the company has managed to get solid fanbase.
Khan purchased ROH and has featured Ring Of Honor on AEW television a lot. At the ROH Supercard of Honor event, quite a few AEW talent were featured on the show as well. Since then, a lot more ROH talent were featured on AEW programming.
While speaking on the latest episode of “Strictly Business, WWE Hal Of Famer Eric Bischoff stated that he believes that there is no upside to AEW purchasing ROH.
“How many YouTube viewers did Ring of Honor get before they were purchased? You’re talking about tens of thousands, maybe? It was an insignificant, off-the-radar, unknown brand, with the exception of the most active of the internet wrestling community who sought it out.
The library was worth almost nothing. A lot of that library is so poorly produced it doesn’t lend itself to a premium streaming platform. You know, there’s some legacy to it because some talent came out of there, which is notable and interesting as backstory. But there’s no real value in any of the assets.”
We will have to wait and see whether ROH will see more improvement and even get a proper TV deal in the end or not.
