Tony Khan Teases ‘Great News’ About Potential ROH TV Show

AEW

When Tony Khan bought Ring of Honor earlier this year, fans were excited about what the promotion’s future would hold under the AEW president’s leadership.

Since Khan’s purchase of the promotion, ROH has held two pay-per-views, the Supercard of Honor show during WrestleMania 38 weekend on April 1 and the Death Before Dishonor event in July.

The ROH World Championship recently changed hands at the AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, with Chris Jericho dethroning Claudio Castagnoli to become “the Ocho”.

This move was questioned by many fans who were hoping to see Castagnoli get a long run with the belt, with most fans speculating that Jericho was given the title as a way to get an eye on ROH, much like AEW the did when Jericho became the first AEW World Champion.

It was announced today that Chris Jericho has signed a new three-year contract extension with AEW, keeping him with the company until 2025. Along with continuing his in-ring roles, Jericho will also be taking part in d other roles behind the scenes.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated about Jericho and ROH, Tony Khan said he would soon have “good news” regarding ROH’s weekly shows.

He said:

“We will soon have some great news about the weekly Ring of Honor shows. The pay-per-view success of Death Before Dishonor has ensured that there will be more Ring of Honor pay-per-views.

“Our goal is to have another big pay-per-view for Ring of Honor in 2022 and then follow that up with a weekly show in 2023.”

Jericho is set to defend the ROH World Championship against former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle on tonight’s AEW Dynamite show.
