Joe Koff Issues Statement Following ROH Sale
The ROH sale officially went through earlier this week
The Sinclair era of Ring of Honor is officially over, after Tony Khan revealed his purchase of ROH was finalised earlier this week.
Former ROH COO Joe Koff reflected on the deal and his time with Ring of Honor in a post on LinkedIn, saying the following:
“What started with a dinner with Cary Silkin some 12 years ago, ended with Episode 552 of Ring of Honor television, which aired recently across our Ring of Honor network, featuring all of the Sinclair Broadcast stations, Bally Sports Networks, Marquee, select stations across America, regional cable systems, international clearances, STIRR, and Honor Club.
“12 years. 552 weekly original hours. Over 1,000+ hours of additional match content. Close to 100 podcasts. YouTube specials. Honor Club. PPV’s. Live House shows on 3 continents. Merchandise. And let me not forget a SOLD OUT Madison Square Garden. That was our Ring of Honor and now, it is in the most capable hands of AEW and the brilliant Tony Khan along with all of the stars that shone in our Ring and the new stars sure to glow as brightly in his Ring of Honor. Thank you again Tony.
“As I look back on this amazing journey, there are so many people who joined this journey with me, our staff, our brilliant athletes that you will always know as Ring of Honor, our partners in production and distribution, our vendors and most importantly, you, our fans. I want to thank you personally for your continuous support, belief in me and our product, what we could do, what we would do, what we did!
“It was the journey of a lifetime and I thank you for sharing it with me.”
