2022 has certainly not been a banner year for All Elite Wrestling. The promotion has continued to present very good in-ring action but issues behind the scenes and injuries have caused the TV product to suffer. Many have also argued Ring of Honor's presence on AEW Dynamite has been detrimental to both promotions, with the perception being that ROH is sometimes emphasised over AEW despite All Elite Wrestling being the promotion fans tune in to watch.
Tony Khan addressed ROH's presence on AEW Dynamite during an appearance on the Battleground Podcast and the AEW President admitted he finds the criticism "amusing."
"I saw somebody saying they thought there was too much Ring of Honor on Dynamite and I thought that was amusing because there's almost been no Ring of Honor on Dynamite in recent weeks, other than Chris Jericho and frankly, Chris Jericho should be on any wrestling show in the world he wants to be on. So, on Rampage though, we have had a variety of them and new wrestlers and I think that's going to be good for our business because these pay-per-view shows that Ring of Honor has done has been really successful for us," Khan began.
"We've made good money and the grosses of those shows frankly have been in line with what I paid for the entire business. So, I would say it's been a very successful relaunch and now I think we'll have, potentially, some of our best pay-per-view numbers yet with Final Battle, especially with such a big, headline world championship match like Chris Jericho vs. Claudio Castagnoli in a high-stakes Ring of Honor World Title match and that is going to cap off what is going to be a huge week of wrestling for us here at AEW."
Ring of Honor's next pay-per-view - Final Battle - will take place on Saturday, December 10. The show is set to begin at 9 pm GMT.
