AEW President Tony Khan announced that he had purchased Ring of Honor back in March 2022. Since then, the company has held two pay-per-views as well as aired a show in tribute to the late Jay Briscoe.
However, Khan has been unable to secure a TV deal for the promotion which has not aired a weekly show since April 2022.
Earlier in February 2023, though, Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that contracted stars were being pulled from Indie shows on February 25th, likely indicating that an announcement was on the horizon.
“They pulled people off of some indies on the 25th (of February) for Ring of Honor television. Wheeler Yuta was pulled and Trish Adora and I’m not sure who else – one or two others.
“My guess is Tony Khan will – look, it’s three weeks from now he better make an announcement soon. So I’m figuring by Tuesday or Wednesday he’ll say something and we’ll get more details on what this is and what it entails.”
Tony Khan confirms date of ROH TV Tapings
Now, during an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan has confirmed that Ring of Honor will indeed hold TV tapings on both February 25th and 26th. He also revealed that the recording would take place in Orlando, Florida. Tickets will be available from February 16th.
While Khan did not divulge many details about when the episodes would air, he did say he would reveal more on the February 16th edition of Dynamite, specifically during the scheduled match between Mark Briscoe and Josh Woods.
It is expected that when the shows do air, they will be on the promotion’s online HonorClub streaming service. It is likely that the shows will feature some set-up for the company’s next pay-per-view event, Supercard of Honor, which takes place on March 31st in Los Angeles, California on the same weekend as WWE’s biggest show of the year, WrestleMania 39.
