(Silver Spring, Md.) – Destination America announced today that it has signed a national broadcast deal with professional wrestling league RING OF HONOR, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., bringing one of the most respected wrestling organizations to the only network dedicated to all-American entertainment. Destination America is now the one-two-punch to professional wrestling, adding RING OF HONOR (ROH) to its line-up after launching IMPACT WRESTLING in early 2015. RING OF HONOR has been delivering top wrestling matches for ten years with captivating hard-hitting stars such as Jay & Mark Briscoe, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, The Young Bucks, Maria Kanellis, Adam Cole and Jay Lethal. Destination America will pack on the action beginning Wednesday June 3 with the series premiere of RING OF HONOR at 8/7c leading into brand new premieres of IMPACT WRESTLING at 9/8c.

“With the electric and intense matches that RING OF HONOR provides, Destination America is the network for fans to get an entire evening of jaw-dropping entertainment on Wednesday nights,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “RING OF HONOR showcases tenacity, athleticism and passion and it serves as the place where America’s favorite wrestling stars are born.”

  1. Another angle is this:

    5 plus years of Universe crying could be shot down here.

    FOR YEARS the Universe, idiots like Necro, X2C, LOVED bashing Dixie and TNA.

    That can all end very quickly.

    FOR YEARS they and the idiots at Inc looked at TNA numbers and bashed them and said it was proof TNA is no good.

    WELL WELL WELL now ROH is going to be on the EXACT SAME STATION as TNA.

    WE will see ROH numbers now.

    If they are similar to or lower than TNA – it will prove TNA does as good as they can under the circumstances and that their numbers aren’t so bad.

    I love this.

    LOVE IT!

    Stay tuned.

  2. When ROH numbers come out and they are similar to TNA – you will be hearing from me.

    We’ll see how the Universe scrambles.

  3. BUT if TNA gets dumped, I will not keep Destination America and pay extra for ROH.

    I won’t keep DA for ROH.

    On principle, and actually because I don’t like ROH enough to pay extra for it. Not a big enough fan of them.

    Just not that big a fan of them – they have no Davey and Eddie – and with Alberto and AJ they are WWE-lite.

    • i ant pay extra a month to get the 200″s range channels where destionation america is on in my area if its not included in basic family cable i want pay more to get either one

  4. I am not one of the smart marks who go gaga over New Japan to seem cool and hip – not a big fan of them either.

    It is the cool internet IWC thing to go gaga for New Japan – but I think for myself and don’t care about fitting into groups such as the IWC and Universe.

    That is why I am always demonized.

  5. Lucha Underground is the other thing the marks like to praise in order to look cool on the net, and fit in to stroke their egos.

    I don’t like that junk either.

  6. MVP looks like a jerk – I see him crying like a baby.

    Please explain the part to me where Destination OR TNA owes him an explanation of their business dealings????

    MVP hasn’t raised ratings, so he should shut his mouth.

    Him and his flat stand crap.

    TNA wouldn’t miss him.

  7. If TNA talents are crying…..

    …who says that Dixie knew about DA signing ROH????

    Why would she know or DA tell her?????

    Dixie could have found out like the rest of us true old-school wrestling fans, and Universe-ites.

    • well roh wili be as far as i am concerned like impact wrestling GONE as i do not get destination america on

      cable

  8. well roh wili be as far as i am concerned like impact wrestling GONE as i do not get destination america on my cable
