During the latest episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy, the AEW star talked about how he believes that Ring Of Honor will become a developmental brand for AEW.
“Almost nothing shocks me in this day and age, but it was pretty epic that Tony Khan bought this,” Hardy said. “The first thing that he said was, ‘I got all your footage from ROH!’ Total Tony Khan mind. But it’s cool and once again, it will ensure that the Ring of Honor footage, which they did a lot of trailblazing stuff themselves, it’s going to stay alive, and be circulated, and live on forever.
“I would almost guess Ring of Honor will be like a developmental for AEW, and I feel like ROH will be our NXT in their old system. I think they’ll have guys that can go over there exclusively and pull guys up, and also just have the two brands like that. If you do it the right way, you can have someone on one brand for a long time, then once their programs are played out, you can switch them to the other brand. It helps keep acts fresh.”
