Tony Khan Set To Handle Creative For ROH Supercard Of Honor

As previously reported, AEW President Tony Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio and revealed that he is working on something massive for the promotion and hopes he will have it done soon, but he’s not sure if it’s what the fans would expect, though he knows it would be a big deal for pro wrestling. AEW CEO and President Tony Khan then noted prior to the March 2 AEW Dynamite episode in Jacksonville, Florida that he isn’t allowed yet to reveal the “massive” announcement as their legal team has put them under NDAs, but hopefully he will be able to soon.

The opening segment of the March 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite saw AEW President and CEO Tony Khan kick the show off with a bang, when he said that the episode of Dynamite would be the biggest night in the history of the company and revealed that the major announcement is he signed a deal to become the new owner of Ring Of Honor. There were reports earlier that same week that ROH and another promotion were in talks about a possible sale and it has now been made clear that the deal was between AEW and ROH.

Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live that the era of Ring Of Honor (ROH) with Tony Khan as the promotion’s head booker will begin at Supercard of Honor XV in Dallas, Texas on April 1 as he will be handling the entire creative for ROH’s first-ever PPV since the company went on a major hiatus. Meltzer also noted that Khan has to put together a lineup from scratch and maybe have AEW talents compete on the show since there is practically nobody under contract to Ring of Honor.

On a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was mentioned that all the plans ROH had prior to Tony Khan purchasing the promotion are no longer happening, but they are also not looking to start from scratch and no plans are in place to have the current champions relinquish their titles or to even cancel the storylines like it never happened. According to Meltzer, the plan is to still have Jonathan Gresham defend the ROH World Title against Bandido, but Tony Khan still needs to sign off on the match and as for the rest of the ROH employees, they are expected to be laid off soon by Sinclair Broadcasting.
