The part of the site where you can find information about the newest wrestling promotion.

Even though I'm sure more will be known about the future of Ring of Honor in the coming days and weeks I thought it was worth talking about at least right now. At this time not all of the information has been released, but what we do know is that Ring of Honor Wrestling has been purchased by Tony Khan and All Elite Wrestling. It is very likely that the purchase was for a pretty penny, but it will be worth it in the long run for Tony Khan as buying ROH now gives him access to the Ring of Honor tape library. Within the twenty years of ROH's library the most important event in AEW is housed All IN which was the first event for AEW or at least the trail run for the promotion.
For those who may not remember in late 2021 it was announced by former ROH parent company Sinclair Broadcasting that following Final Battle the promotion would be taking a hiatus until April of 2022. The hiatus would be designed to allow ROH management to figure on a new direction for the promotion and effective immediately all contracts would either be terminated or allowed to expire. Some contracted ROH wrestlers will still be under contract until late March 2022 according to reports, but for the most part the roster that was once under the ROH banner is free to appear wherever.
A few questions come to mind though, what does this mean for the Supercard of Honor in April will the show still take place and be the official farewell for ROH. Will the Hall of Fame Class of 2022 for Ring of Honor be a way to keep the promotion alive. According to some reports it is possible that ROH will become a developmental of sorts for AEW. As I mentioned earlier not everything is known at this point and some questions still remain the one thing we do know is that Tony Khan has officially purchased Ring of Honor wrestling.
