Ring of Honor had a rough 2019 with attendance dropping and momentum halting following the G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden. With AEW entering the scene and IMPACT finding a stable television home, the public perception of ROH has taken a hit over the last year.
But with Marty Scurll in as head booker and the relationship between ROH and NJPW back on track, there was optimism to start 2020. And Flip Gordon believes the best is yet to come.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Flip was asked what ROH needs to really elevate to the next level. He responded by saying, "A live (TV show), something you can keep up with week-to-week. The traditional way we've done in the past for TV has been hard to follow. Sometimes, I don't even know what episode is on because I don't know what channel it's on, which can be difficult as a fan if you're trying to follow the product. If we can get a solid platform where you know every week 'You can watch Ring of Honor every week at this time, on this platform,' I think that would help us immensely."
Flip went on to say that once lockdown ends, fans will be excited at what ROH has been working on, but didn't give further details.
ROH has a weekly television show, but it airs at various times across the country and has become less essential with ROH streaming live events/television tapings on HonorClub.
Flip recently signed a new deal with ROH, keeping him in the company for the foreseeable future. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
