– The word from Ring Of Honor is that there will be an increase in the production value at the live TV tapings. This is a result of the deal with Destination America. Other than the added exposure on Destination America, things are not expected to be much different with how ROH handles things. Of course, the added exposure should (in theory) help get the talents more bookings on their days off and should help ROH sell more tickets and pay-per-views.
– There is still talk of doing one or two live specials but a deal has not been reached yet. ROH’s TV timeslot at 8pm on Sunday nights on NESN starts this weekend. The good thing about that timeslot is that they don’t have to be worried about preempted by baseball since ESPN carries the game of the week. Any 8pm Red Sox games would be on ESPN and not NESN.
– Maria Kanellis got a 3.83 GPA at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI so she is working on a back up plan which is good to hear. She is working towards her sports entertainment and event management degree. She is taking two classes a week because of her schedule but plans on increasing it to six in the fall. She also plans on starting a podcast.
