Report: Ring of Honor and WWE in Negotiations Regarding a Buyout

ProWrestlingSheet.com is reporting that Sinclair Broadcast Group, the parent company of Ring of Honor, and WWE have been in negotiations regarding a buyout of the promotion.

According to the report, officials for both sides have had discussions since January regarding the possibility of a sale.  If a deal were to be made between the two companies, WWE would fully take over Ring of Honor.   The weekly ROH broadcast would most likely move over to WWE Network.

It is important to emphasize that there are no official decisions made at this point in time, and any possible deal could fall through.  Certainly a story worth keeping an eye on.

Bill Says:  Given the talent from ROH who have now found their way into the WWE system (Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, and Roderick Strong immediately come to mind), one asset that would be strong for WWE to have would be the tape library.  Sinclair has not made the best use of that library for sure, and seems to have left money on the table with it.
