ROH had their Supercard Of Honor XV PPV Event this past Friday night inside the Curtis Culwell Center in Dallas, Texas, which is the company’s first-ever show coming out of a major hiatus and their first show as well with AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, who is also the owner of ROH, as the one in charge of the entire show. The show had several huge and surprising moments such as the appearances of Samoa Joe and The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) and the reigning AAA Tag Team Champions FTR’s Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood beating The Briscoes (Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe) to become the brand-new ROH World Tag Team Champions.
Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that ROH Supercard Of Honor this past Friday night was able to do over 20,000 PPV buys, which for Ring Of Honor is a big number, considering what they have been doing for previous PPV Events. Meltzer also revealed that the fact that fans who were subscribed to the Honor Club streaming service got to see the PPV for free is what makes it even more impressive.
This is what Dave Meltzer said:
“For Ring of Honor, they did over 20,000 buys between streaming and television. I don’t know how much over, but they beat 20,000. Which for that show, considering all the stuff that was going on all night, considering what Ring of Honor usually does, that’s a phenomenal number.”
There’s no word yet on when ROH’s next show will take place, but Tony Khan did say that he would like to bring ROH to national television and perhaps one day that might just happen, especially due to the fact that he owns both AEW and ROH.
