Some conflicting reports are making the rounds among the wrestling media regarding Ring of Honor in talks for expanding television with other network outlets.
A report by PWInsider claimed that no negotiations had taken place between ROH and Spike TV, while a new report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims that ROH has been in preliminary talks with both Spike TV and AXS TV (the former HDNet).
AXS currently produces a weekly New Japan Pro Wrestling show and aired ROH programming from 2009 to 2011 (they opted to not renew a deal with ROH). The talks – although very preliminary with Spike TV – would be for a Friday night show once a month giving Spike a regular rotation of Bellator, Glory, boxing and pro wrestling. ROH landing a deal with Spike TV would put them in 83 percent of the country while Sinclair Broadcasting is syndicated in up to 40 percent of the country.
