Tony Khan Wants The ROH World Title To Be Defended In AEW

ROH World Title defences in AEW is what Tony Khan wants

The Tony Khan era of Ring Of Honor began on Friday night as the promotion presented Supercard Of Honor from the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas. 

The show featured several major moments and titles changes and in the main event, Jonathan Gresham defeated Bandido to become the Undisputed ROH World Champion. 

When exactly Gresham will next defend the championship remains to be confirmed, but Tony Khan revealed during the post-Supercard Of Honor media scrum that he wants The Octopus to defend the gold on AEW programming. 

"I would love to have Jonathan defend the title in AEW and on AEW programming, that's definitely something that is possible. Jonathan has travelled the world and he can tell you better than anybody about his vast experience in wrestling and all the championships he's held all over the world," Khan began.

"I'm excited for him to defend the championship in AEW, on Dynamite, on Rampage, on lots of our great programming and also, there are a lot of great relationships we have with other companies and relationships Jonathan has with companies and there are a lot of exciting possibilities both in AEW and through the Forbidden Door."

Gresham then admitted it would be an honour to put the title on the line in AEW and reiterated his desire to defend the gold against CM Punk and Bryan Danielson.
