ROH Comes to Atlanta TV

ROH ATL

Last night or early this morning Ring of Honor made its television debut in the Atlanta area. As an Atlanta resident I am excited about this development. We have not had Ring of Honor on TV since their days on HDNet and that was not a widely distributed network. Now we have a chance to see the Briscoes and Jay Lethal on network television in this market. My only complaint is that it comes on at 2am in the morning.

In a statement from Sinclair Broadcasting:
“This is a very exciting start to developing ROH’s broader syndication distribution,” stated Joe Koff, COO of Ring of Honor Wrestling. “Since purchasing ROH three years ago, we have upgraded the production quality, added live events and expanded the audience footprint to 76 television markets reaching over 44 million households. We will add an additional 2.4 million television households through today’s announcement and are in discussions with additional companies for syndicated distribution. This is an excellent product with a loyal fan base, which has helped ROH become one of the fastest growing major wrestling franchises in the country. We look forward to expanding ROH’s footprint and continuing to offer entertaining original content.”

Hopefully as viewership increases this will change but in the meantime we will enjoy the show. Ring of Honor got off to a good start with AJ Styles in the first match and a main event that featured The Briscoes versus The Young Bucks. This could be the signal that ROH will begin touring in the Atlanta market. If so I can’t wait.
