ROH’s return to television has yet to be announced. Khan has continued to sign AEW talent with the intention of using them in his ROH promotion.

Khan agreed to buy ROH in late March and took control at that time. His purchase was completed a few weeks ago. ROH was on hiatus in late 2021, but returned on April 1 with Supercard of Honor XV, which Khan and his crew organized. Gresham was crowned the undisputed ROH World Champion, while Wheeler Yuta was crowned the ROH Pure Champion, FTR was crowned the ROH World Tag Team Champions, Mercedes Martinez was crowned the Interim ROH Women’s World Champion, and new talent debuted, some of whom were previously or currently affiliated with AEW. Since then, Samoa Joe has signed with Khan and has won the ROH World Television Championship, while Martinez has won the ROH Women’s World Championship.
