Tony Khan wants the Ring of Honor Championship defended on AEW television.
Tony Khan is now the owner of Ring of Honor and now, he wants the Ring of Honor World Champion, Jonathan Gresham, to defend his gold on AEW television.
“I would love to have Jonathan defend the title in AEW and on AEW programming, that’s definitely something that is possible,” Tony Khan said on the post Supercard of Honor 2022 media scrum. “Jonathan has traveled 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. 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 they are a lot of exciting possibilities both in AEW and through the Forbidden Door.”
Answering that, Jonathan Gresham said he would consider it an honor to defend his Ring of Honor titles on AEW television, again repeating that he wants to face Bryan Danielson and CM Punk and an effort to restore honor.
"For me, it would be an honor to take Ring of Honor to national television. The funny this is, my life has been somewhat of a Cinderella story. I grew up in wrestling idolizing the men and women that worked for Ring of Honor and my passion grew. It got me out of a lot of trouble and I wouldn’t be sitting next to Tony Khan right now if it wasn’t for Ring of Honor. My goal was always to be Ring of Honor World Champion, I never told anybody, but I worked night and day to get exactly where I am today. My goal along the way was to make sure that Ring of Honor lives on. I want to take the idea, the essence, the heart and soul of Ring of Honor to everybody around the world. Now that Tony Khan has acquired Ring of Honor, I can now do that. I really appreciated the passion that he has for professional wrestling and the passion he has for RIng of Honor. If it wasn’t for Tony Khan, Honor would have died. Now, I can stick with the company that I have fallen in love with all these years ago. I don’t have to wave another flag, ever, besides the Ring of Honor flag," said Gresham.
At Supercard of Honor, Gresham defeated Bandido to become the undisputed ROH World Champion. If you missed anything from the show, you can catch up by checking out Fightful's live coverage.
