    ProWrestlingSheet.com reports that WWE has been talking with Sinclair Broadcast Group about a possible Ring of Honor buyout. The two organizations have reportedly been talking since January and things have been gradually progressing. It is unknown at this time which wrestlers would remain in ROH and which would end up in WWE if the buyout happened. WWE would take complete control over ROH with the weekly television shows broadcasting on the WWE Network. However, there is nothing set in stone yet.

    Ring of Honor Sources Reportedly Deny WWE Buyout Reports, Claim “There is No Story Here”

    Chuck Carroll of CBSLocal.com has published a story claiming Ring of Honor will not be sold to WWE, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation. One high-ranking source said “there is no story here.”

    During an interview earlier this month, ROH COO Joe Koff emphatically denied rumors of a potential sale.

    “No. No, no, no,” Koff told me. “It’s very flattering and humbling to us. It validates what we’ve done. A lot of their current performers and stars are ROH guys and we have their history. So maybe the content of the backstories of Kevin Steen before he became Kevin Owens or AJ Styles’ run in Ring of Honor, Tyler Black (aka Seth Rollins), Claudio (Castagnoli aka Cesaro) … all of the guys who have wrestled for us. We have their backstory and where it began… That’s our content.”
