For this weeks edition of the So Far Back Sunday, I jump way back in time to the late summer of 2011 when ROH was sold to the television company named Sinclair Broadcasting. With Sinclair ROH has been able to have a wider reach for the shows and thus has expanded the popularity of the company due to it's ability to reach a wider audience. However, this post isn't just about ROH being sold to Sinclair it is more so about the night that ROH ran their first show on the TV station. As certain things changed other then ownership of the company these things included, a new announce team, a new TV champion on this show was crowned, and who could forget this was the last show for one of ROH's top teams.
Things changed on that night in September 2011 in many ways for ROH and most of those ways were for the betterment of the company. Now please join as we take a trip back in the wrestling time machine to relive ROH's debut episode on Sinclair Broadcasting. Enjoy!!!
Tonight ROH will return to TV under new ownership & on a new TV station with the Sinclair Broadcasting System. You will see tonight main event The Kings of Wrestling vs Wrestling Greatest Tag Team which will be the Kings last ROH appearance before going to the WWE. We will see the return of a former ROH world champion tonight as well. Bravados vs Future Shock (Cole & O' Riley) a feud that has been going on for a while now between two of the top young teams in wrestling comes to ahead tonight. A new broadcast team as both Hogwood & Dave is out giving Kevin Kelly the lead role at the table with an unknown partner or he might be solo.
Also for the next few weeks some the matches you'll see on ROH TV are: Davey defends the title against Roderick Strong in the main event. Generico also defends the TV Title against Jay Lethal.
