AEW President and now the owner of ROH, Tony Khan, is moving forward with ROH’s Supercard of Honor event that takes place on April 1st over WrestleMania weekend.
The show will be going up against AEW Rampage on TNT on this night. While he didn’t plan for the show to take place as he wasn’t the owner of ROH at that point, he does plan on booking the event. During an appearance on Busted Open Radio today, he discussed the upcoming event.
“I haven’t had the chance to talk about it publicly, but I thought it would be great to address it with you guys today. I had not scheduled this pay-per-view, Ring of Honor Supercard, but I really think it’s important for me because they sold tickets and made a commitment to the fans to still do the show. I see it as a transitional show in many ways and I’m really excited about it. It’s the first show under new management and a transition show for….I will relaunch what I hope to be a really great new Ring of Honor television product, a weekly series, wherever it does air or stream. And this is a great opportunity to put our own stamp on it.”
He thinks it pays respect to past and current ROH stars. He noted that he won’t use everyone from AEW on the show, but some wrestlers.
Regarding Supercard of Honor going up against Rampage, Khan stated, “Now, it’s a unique circumstance because there is other stuff on TV that night, including AEW Rampage. It’s going to be unusual because I’m effectively in two places at once. And it’s going to be a bizarre and hopefully memorable night in wrestling. I would never compete with my own show. So it’s going to be a very different night because we’re making a one-time-only exception. I’m grateful to the great partnership we have with WarnerMedia.”
Khan added after putting over WarnerMedia for letting them do this, “I am going to announce more for the card. I’m really excited about it. I’ll make it the best card I can for Ring of Honor while still respecting AEW and our agreements with WarnerMedia and keeping AEW a top priority also.”
