Tony Khan kicked off this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite with his big announcement, that he had purchased Ring of Honor.
The news of ROH’s purchase began to make it rounds last night, with the initial circle being very small. Not much was known about the specific details regarding Tony Khan’s purchase of ROH, however one source had stated to me that he heard it was in the $30-$40 million range, but I was unable to confirm that information with any other sources within either AEW or ROH.
When asking around about the sale of ROH and plans for the company going forward, sources confirmed to me that internal plans call for AEW to utilize Ring of Honor as a developmental territory of sorts. Additionally, it was said that “Main Roster” AEW Talent will be dipping into the ROH brand on occasion.
I will keep you updated when more information about Tony Khan’s purchase of Ring of Honor becomes available.
