Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. CEO Chris Ripley revealed the interesting plans that ROH has for 2019.
The Baltimore Business Journal has reported that Ring of Honor is looking to hold an event at the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York City next year. The reason for this plan is due to the successful sell-out of All In.
The article would go onto to credit WWE’s upcoming television deals with NBCUniversal to keep their flagship show, Monday Night RAW, on the USA Network and moving SmackDown Live to FOX for ROH to have a more relevant name value in the industry.
Ripley stated that the plan that the company has to grow the Baltimore-based promotion is to take advantage of a “very passionate fanbase.” He noted that they want to start running bigger venues, which started when they sold out 10,000 seats in less than an hour in Chicago. Thus, the reason they want to run MSG.
“We have been scaling in terms of our production quality,” Ripley said.
Ripley would go onto talk about why they would be open to selling the promotion if a ridiculous offer came about, WWE’s TV deal and more. You can check out the full article here.
