Joe Koff Reacts To WWE Comparison Comments By Sinclair CEO

PWInsider reached out to ROH COO Joe Koff for a reaction to the comments made by Sinclair Broadcast Group President and CEO, Christopher Ripley earlier this week when he stated that ROH is “an unpolished gem that ultimately should be something in the same light as WWE.” Koff responded with the following:

“Sinclair has been nothing short of incredible in their support and enthusiasm for our product,” Koff said. “In just a few years, they have invested significant time and energy in expanding the scope and reach of Ring of Honor to a global audience. What makes Ring of Honor unique is our investment into our fans to help grow the massive grassroots support that has been the backbone of Ring of Honor since the very beginning. We are focused on continuing to improve our product by creating better programming and content— through exciting live events and our over-the-top distribution network HonorClub— for our fans, and providing a platform where our male and female athletes can showcase their talents and thrive within this industry.”
