Booker T thinks Chris Jericho winning ROH world title was a good decision, unsure of ROH TV deal

In the latest edition of his Hall of Fame Podcast WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed Chris Jericho who won the ROH world title, and why he thinks it was a good call for the brand, even though he also thinks ROH shouldn’t be a television show of its own. Highlights from the interview can be found below.

Thinks it was a good decision to put the ROH world title on Chris Jericho:

“I think it’s smart to shed some light on that Ring of Honor title, that Ring of Honor brand. I don’t remember what that Ring of Honor brand is, other than it’s part of AEW now… I haven’t heard anything about Ring of Honor shows. But if you’re trying to keep that name alive, that Ring of Honor name alive, to have the title on someone like Chris Jericho, I think it does, you know? I think it’s important that if you plan to do something with that brand in the future, it’s important to keep that brand alive.”

Don’t know if ROH is closer to a TV deal, but thinks Tony Khan may be overbooking himself:

“I don’t think so, to be honest. I mean, I could be wrong. I could be 100% wrong but I think it would be very difficult for Tony Khan to run AEW Dynamite, Rampage and a totally different organization in ROH. House shows, as well as TV, and a roster strong enough to be able to create different storylines unlike the storylines you are creating on AEW Rampage, Dynamite. It would drive him crazy. His stack would just blow it off if he thought about 52 weeks a year, three shows… can you imagine?’

Says he doesn’t think ROH has to compete with Dynamite and Rampage:

“For me personally, the brand would be scrapped and the archive used for AEW promotional packs and what not. But as far as trying to create a ROH brand where you compete with both Dynamite and Rampage, I just think you’re just putting a lot on your plate there and I just don’t think it’s possible to be honest.”
