Tony Khan appeared on “Busted Open” Radio today where he talked about the future of the Ring of Honor Supercard, as well as the future of ROH Wrestling.
“Something else I’m looking forward to is it’s going to be a very unusual circumstance on AEW Rampage in two weeks, which is the, let’s say a crowded day in pro wrestling,” he said.
“It wouldn’t have been my first choice for the scheduling necessarily, but I haven’t had a chance to talk about it publicly, so I thought it would be great to address it with you guys today.”
“In two weeks, it’ll be a very crowded Friday of wrestling. I had not scheduled this pay per view, the 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 that I’m really excited about because it is the first show under the new management.”
“It’s also a transition show before 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,” he continued.
“This is a great opportunity to put our own stamp on it, but also pay respect to the great Ring of Honor traditions and the great history of Ring of Honor, with some of the top stars from the recent Ring of Honor and some of the great wrestlers who have been in Ring of Honor, historically.”
“Am I going to be able to take everybody from AEW and bring them there? No. But I think there is a very cool way to use some of the great wrestlers in AEW who are going to be available and make this a great show. We have some of the best wrestlers, best athletes, in the world already in AEW.”
“Ring of Honor has a great tradition and some great matches, not just in their library from the past, but also very recently. So I am really excited about this.”
“It’s a unique circumstance, because there’s other stuff on TV that night including AEW Rampage. So it’s going to be unusual, because I’m effectively in two places at once. It’ll be one of those bizarre, hopefully memorable nights in pro 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 night only, one time only exception.”
