Ring Of Honor Wrestling To Broadcast On Destination America In June

Ring of Honor Wrestling has announced that they will be broadcasting on Destination America beginning on June 3rd. Destination America themselves later confirmed this news and stated that ROH Wrestilng episodes would air before episodes of TNA Impact Wrestling.

PWInsider.com is reporting that the deal between ROH Wrestling and Destination America is, in fact, a national broadcast deal. They also report that the two parties have been in talks "for the past few months" and that their deal has nothing to do with the apparent situation going on between the network and TNA Wrestling.

Furthermore, it is also being reported that the episodes of ROH Wrestling that will air on Destination America will be the ones that are both owned and distributed by the Sinclair Broadcasting company. It appears that what will happen is that the episodes will air first on Sinclair-owned networks over the weekend before being broadcast on Wednesdays on Destination America. It is also being reported that ROH Wrestling will air every week on Destination America at least through the end of this year, though it could end up being longer than that.

Destination America has also issued the following press release about the deal with ROH Wrestling:


(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.
