More Details RE: ROH Supercard of Honor Including New Direction, Roster Changes and More!
It seems the sale of Ring of Honor to Tony Khan may have changed the overall landscape heading into Supercard of Honor, get the details below!
Supercard of Honor is shaping up to be a monumental show and return for Ring of Honor. This will be the indy promotions first Pay Per View show since Decembers Final Battle as the company went on hiatus for re-packaging purposes and a change in direction. With Supercard of Honor set to kick start a new era of ROH all eyes are glued to the promotion to see which direction it will take, especially after Tony Khan became the owner.
A detailed report fromk Fightful Select has offered us all a sneak peak at the process behind this huge show, which includes the long and winding road that has led to FTR vs. The Briscoes which featured many twists and turns along the way. Fight Select had previously reported that WarnerMedia, the group who AEW works with to produce their weekly television shows, was largely against having The Briscoe’s on AEW TV, leading a lot of us to speculate that this bout, which both teams have hyped up, would not happen. However, it was recently announced that FTR vs. The Briscoe’s for the ROH World Tag Team Championship was going to go down at Supercard of Honor.
The report from Fightful also examines noteworthy news regarding the roster for ROH. It seems clear that Tony Khan will be making plenty of changes as former ROH Head Booker Delirious is no longer committed to working with the company post Supercard of Honor. As for the roster, Fightful also noted that many previous members of the roster have not been contacted by the new management team and it looks like, at this time, that former ROH Talent may not be involved with the company unless there is communication between both parties and contracts can be put in place.
While the previous ROH Creative Team had been making plans leading into Supercard of Honor, the purchase of ROH by Khan has ultimately changed the direction of the show. It has been reported by Fightful that both Killer Kross and Scarlett were booked for the show, but they have also not heard from the new management team. Finally, it is being noted that fans and the industry alike can at least expect one signed to come out of Supercard of Honor to work with either AEW or ROH.
What do you think about these details heading into Supercard of Honor? Is it a good thing that plans are being tweaked heading into this monumental PPV? Or do you think it could be a sign that this will not be the ROH fans fell in love with?
