Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Ring of Honor and Spike TV and currently in preliminary talks about bringing ROH programming to the network once a month, on a Friday timeslot, so that Friday’s would rotate between Bellator MMA, Glory kickboxing, Al Haymen’s boxing and then Ring of Honor professional wrestling. Meltzer notes that they are currently still in talks and he has been given no indication that they are past the point of preliminary. Key people in the company weren’t even aware of the talks until the rumor broke last week.

It is also noted that ROH have spoken to AXS TV, who formerly hosted their ROH on HDNet TV show between 2009 – 2011, when the channel was HDNet and owned by Mark Cuban. ROH are said to have made a pitch to AXS TV but that AXS are happy right now with New Japan Pro Wrestling. However, it’s also said that right now AXS aren’t looking to renew their New Japan Pro Wrestling series but are speaking to Ashai TV, NJPW’s Japanese distributor about programming on their channel.
