Tony Khan rocked the wrestling world with the announcement of his acquisition of Ring of Honor, so what’s next for the promotion?
With the addition of the AEW All-Atlantic Championship, and the rumors of the forthcoming Trios championships, are there continued plans to feature the Ring of Honor Championship titles on AEW?
Speaking to Connor Casey of ComicBook, Khan commented on his goals for the return of Ring of Honor, including hope for a weekly television offering, saying:
“The Ring of Honor Championships right now have primarily been defended in recent months in AEW, all across our shows. And I think it has benefited, for example, on AEW Dark and Elevation. First of all, on AEW Dynamite and Rampage, we’ve seen Samoa Joe defend the Ring of Honor World Television title. With Battle of the Belts, we’ve seen Jonathan Gresham defend the Ring of Honor World Championship. And then recently on Dark and Elevation, we’ve had Wheeler Yuta defending the Pure title and Mercedes Martinez defending the Women’s World title. Fans have asked in the past, ‘Hey, would there be champions on Dark and Elevation?’ Now we have had some good championship matches and I think there will still be some to come in the future across AEW shows.
“But also I look forward to hopefully getting the Ring of Honor weekly TV back. And restarted under our management and hopefully, the best TV we could possibly do, and on a great outlet. And that’s something we’re still working on. And I think when there’s a weekly home for Ring of Honor, then there will be that much more programming where these championships can live.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Khan also discussed the purpose of the AEW All-Atlantic Championship and whether or not we could possibly see an AEW and/or ROH streaming platform deal in the near future.
All Elite Wrestling continues to prepare for the next major pay-per-view on its schedule, the inaugural AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door coming to fans live from Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, June 26th, 2022.
