Pro Wrestling Sheet reports their sources have informed them WWE is in discussions with Sinclair Broadcasting Group, parent company of Ring of Honor (ROH), about purchasing the promotion from which they signed stars like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens and others.

Multiple people tell Ryan Satin the two companies have been talking since January. Progress has been slow, but the goal is apparently a total buyout, including airing the weekly ROH TV program on WWE Network.

The report specifies there’s no word on if all wrestler contracts would carry over or what the ROH roster might look like after a possible deal is struck. It also clarifies there’s no deal in place - these are only negotiations, and they still could fall through.

Obviously, this isn’t something which will happen imminently. But just that these talks are occurring raises a ton of questions, including ones about the future of NXT, and the agreements WWE’s had in the past with Evolve or their more recent ones with United Kingdom promotions like Progress and ICW.

Stay tuned...

New Japan's popularity will go through the roof...

Not that I believe this will even happen.

I mean Sinclair really has never treated ROH very well. As much money as they have they hardly invest anything into ROH. Someone else hopefully will pick them up rather than WWE. Not a fan of ROH, but I don't want them to die. Maybe NJPW can buy them or someone.

I'll admit SBG hasn't made all the right choices but they did save the promotion. Plus it helped a lot that they are completely hands off when it comes to creative.

The rumor has been confirmed false. Apparently the discussions are only in regards to licencing footage of Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens for future documentaries.

I do think it is Triple H's goal to get a hold of ROH, corner the indy market for NXT. Sinclair may have saved ROH but they have done jack for ROH since and I think they are seeing ROH as a liability and could easily sale ROH. I think maybe sell ROH to NJPW and let ROH be the tool to hit the american market NJPW has been wanting to do. But I do think Triple H is hellbent on getting ROH.

Sinclair owning ROH will always be better than The Evil Empire getting their filthy hands on everything.

But how long will sinclair continue wanting to have ROH. This isn't a knock to ROH but how profitable is ROH to sinclair? Yeah Sinclair has a lot of money, but business always want more and will drop something if it isn't turning a profit. Also There are a lot of cold periods for ROH, no buzz. Yeah Daniels winning the title got people talking but what was the last time before that when there was buzz around ROH? When Adam Cole joined the Bullet Club? Not Saying Sinclair will be dropping ROH anytime soon, but they better make sure they have a back up plan to keep afloat or else you'll see half the ROH roster on NXT soon.

When did you start caring about the business side of wrestling? I remember you being pissed off about Spike and Destination America dropping Impact.

I was upset at the time but I understand now why Spike did what they did. DA are idiots because TNA was their highest rated show. But with Spike I understand since TNA made no progress in viewership. Tho doesn't help any when a network could give two fucks about you, use you to promote their Shitty MMA company but never promote you in return. ROH is in a simlair boat with Sinclair as Sinclair really could give two fucks about ROH or else they be on a better platform. ROH maybe owned by a richer network than WWE but that money has hardly ever went to ROH.
And I think I have made it clear in the past i do care about the business side

All I am saying is ROH needs to be prepared the day Sinclair see no worth in them. Make sure there are others who are willing to take them.
