– A series of contracts recently expired within Ring of Honor in June and most talent have all signed new one-year deals with the company. Some of the bigger names with contracts expiring included Michael Elgin and current World Champion Kevin Steen. The company also learned a hard lesson in terms of putting titles on talent with deals set to expire after the Kenny King situation.
– As noted last week here on the website, the Sinclair Broadcast Group has announced the purchase of seven television stations for $452.5 million. This will add numerous new markets for the weekly Ring of Honor show. Sinclair plans to buy six TV stations in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida and Kansas.
