• “Worth almost nothing” – WCW Legend Bashes AEW President Tony Khan For Buying ROH
During the March 2, 2022 episode of AEW Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan revealed that he has purchased Independent Wrestling promotion Ring of Honor from Sinclair Broadcast Group, including everything that came with the company.
Since then, Khan has featured ROH heavily on his AEW TV shows, but WCW Legend Eric Bischoff does not think there’s any upside to the purchase of ROH Wrestling.
Here’s what Easy E had to say on the ‘Strictly Business’ podcast:
“How many YouTube viewers did Ring of Honor get before they were purchased? You’re talking about tens of thousands, maybe? It was an insignificant, off-the-radar, unknown brand, with the exception of the most active of the internet wrestling community who sought it out.
The library was worth almost nothing. A lot of that library is so poorly produced it doesn’t lend itself to a premium streaming platform.
You know, there’s some legacy to it because some talent came out of there, which is notable and interesting as backstory. But there’s no real value in any of the assets.”
