A Conversation With Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff

Joe Koff, the COO of Ring of Honor, joins the podcast this week! We discussed:

  • The card for ROH’s Death Before Dishonor PPV this Friday, which features a main event of Cody vs. Minoru Suzuki for the promotion’s world title, as well as Kushida vs. Kenny King for the TV championship, and Adam Page & The Young Bucks vs. the winner of the The Kingdom vs. Bully Ray & the Briscoes.
  • Ring of Honor’s upcoming four-date tour with New Japan
  • What the pending merger between Sinclair (which is ROH’s parent company) and Tribune Company will mean for ROH’s television coverage, and if there’s the possibility the promotion will be on one network nationwide at the same time.
  • Will ROH permit their current champion Cody to appear at WWE Starrcade in Greensboro, where his father Dusty Rhodes had a lot of history?
  • With all of the big talents that have gone from ROH to WWE — Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins, Cesaro, AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Sami Zayn and more — is it possible that ROH’s tape library could ever wind up on WWE Network?
