Cary Silkin, former owner of ROH before it was acquired by AEW’s Tony Khan, appeared recently on Busted Open to talk about how the promotion was faring under its new ownership (per Wrestling Inc). Silkin thinks the company’s two PPV events under Khan haven’t plumbed the full depths of its potential to date. You can read a couple highlights and listen to the complete episode below.

On if ROH has seen justice done yet under Tony Khan: “No, not yet. Maybe Tony Khan will hear this and not be happy with what I said … He’s got so many people there that he’s going to use contracted AEW guys as opposed to bringing in Dalton Castle regularly or bringing in a Matt Taven or whoever else. Hopefully some of these guys who are fringe but worthy wrestling talent like Taven, like Mike Bennett, other guys have signed with Impact already.”

On the wrestlers from ROH he would like to see better utilized: “I would like to see the brand represented. Absolutely Chris Jericho brings more attention to the ROH letters, but, you know, he’s got Claudio there. He’s got Bryan Danielson there, Jay Lethal who I feel has not been used to his best ability at all.”
