Continuing their rise back through the rankings of independent wrestling, Ring of Honor (ROH) have announced their return to television screens across the United Kingdom. Their weekly show, Ring of Honor Wrestling, will begin airing on The Fight Network at 11pm from Wednesday, May 6th – directly after the British airing of IMPACT Wrestling at 9pm.

The news comes after a trial run was tested in 2019, which went down a huge success with grappling fans. Now, British fans of ROH can enjoy the weekly product on national television, seeing British and Irish stars such as ‘Overkill’ Mark Haskins, ‘The Prestigious One’ Joe Hendry, ‘The Session Moth’ Martina, and ROH booker ‘The Villian’ Marty Scurll, alongside other ROH mainstays such as Dalton Castle, Flip Gordon, Matt Taven, and current World Champion, Rush.
With this announcement, it continues a recent wave of success for the Maryland-based promotion. Throughout 2019, ROH were falling further and further down the pecking order when it came to independent wrestling, with their treatment of the women’s division and the involvement of nZo and CaZXL (the former Enzo Amore and Big Cass) at their WrestleMania weekend Supercard of Honor event both being notable failings. Now though, the company are firmly rising to the cream of the crop once more, with the inclusion of Marty Scurll on the booking team to partly thank for that.
The Fight Network can be found on British televisions at channel 192 from 9pm onwards each Wednesday to Sunday evening.
