Tony Khan takes exception to the idea that there is too much Ring of Honor content on AEW Dynamite. During a recent podcast appearance, Tony Khan clarified why he believes his relaunch of Ring of Honor has been successful and talks about what is next for ROH.
Since purchasing Ring of Honor in March 2022, Tony Khan has run to Ring of Honor pay-per-views. Both of these events have been financial successes for the company and now, Tony Khan says that the time is coming for Ring of Honor to be separate from AEW programming.
Tony Khan Details Of The Financial Success Of His Ring Of Honor Relaunch
Appearing on the Battleground Podcast, Tony says that Ring of Honor content has barely appeared on his Wednesday night program outside of anything involving Chris Jericho and that is because of the magnitude of Jericho’s star power
“I saw somebody saying they thought there was too much Ring of Honor on Dynamite. I thought that was amusing because there’s been almost no Ring of Honor on Dynamite,” Tony said. “Other than Chris Jericho and frankly, Chris Jericho should be on any wrestling show in the world he wants to be on.
“So on Rampage, we have had a variety of them and these new wrestlers and I think that’s going to be good for our business because these pay-per-view shows that Ring of Honor has done it been really successful for us. We’ve made good money and the grosses of those shows frankly have been in line with what I paid for the entire business. I would say it’s been a very successful relaunch and now I think we’ll have potentially some of our best pay-per-view numbers yet with Final Battle.”
Tony Khan, on a media call prior to Final Battle, revealed that after the event, he may be more likely to expand upon the company’s future on TV.
Also on that media call, Tony spoke about the contractual status of William Regal. Learn more here.
