Tony Khan's Purchase Of ROH Includes Tape Library

Major news from last night

In a historic moment on Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan announced he had purchased Ring Of Honor.

Khan revealed few details about the purchase, only making light of WWE buying WCW back in 2001, but further details about Khan buying ROH were revealed in a press release.

As part of purchasing Ring Of Honor from Sinclair Broadcast Group, Khan now owns the promotion's video library dating back to 2002, intellectual property, production equipment, brand assets and more. 

Khan said about the purchase: "Ring of Honor's influence on modern professional wrestling is etched permanently in the history books, and this acquisition ensures that its legacy will be kept alive and treated with the utmost respect. This deal adds thousands of hours of content to our rapidly growing library and creates new opportunities to expand our footprint on a national and global scale, while having the potential to produce new content under the ROH banner. 

"I will immediately begin exploring opportunities to make ROH's video library available to fans, who'll have the opportunity to witness the beginnings of the careers of some of AEW's biggest stars."

Several former ROH stars are currently members of the AEW roster, including former ROH World Champions like Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Jay Lethal, Christopher Daniels, and Kyle O'Reilly.
