Arda Ocal & Jimmy Korderas of R.A.W. Radio recently spoke with Cary Silkin of ROH. Highlights:
Cary speaks of the ‘new beginning’ for ROH
Will Cary still be working with ROH?
"Yes I will be with ROH. I’m remaining with the company. I have interests in the new Ring of Honor and I will be visible and contributing to the company and that makes the deal even better"
What can fans expect from the "new" Ring of Honor
"The new ROH is just the business. It’s new management. But it’s the old ROH ethic. Nobody can steal the Ring of Honor style – the quality of wrestling we have been proud to present for the last 9 and a half years. That’s not gonna change at all. That’s one of the things I was attracted to about this deal. The Sinclair people like the ethic of ROH and they weren’t looking to come in and "reinvent the wheel" as far as the product. But they will be adding (and can add) so much that I just was not able to do. And this is a very good and very big company. They’re in 35 strong markets with long-standing ties in those communities and with television – and people know those stations."
How many ROH live events will be done in the next year or 2
"You probably won’t like the answer but it’s the truthful answer. Its to be determined. There’s gonna be a press conference on June 24th in Baltimore Maryland at the Sinclair broadcasting center. A lot of the questions will be answered then. When will the show be on? In which markets? And we will have the answers then but right now we don’t have those answers."
What kind of power ROH has to bring itself back to prominence?
