DATELINE: FEB 23, 2002 – MURPHY REC CENTER – PHILADELPHIA, PA
Ring of Honor holds their first show, credited as The Era of Honor Begins.
The promotion was originally founded by RF Video owner Rob Feinstein. However, Feinstein left ROH in March 2004 after he was involved in a sting operation, where he was allegedly caught soliciting sex on the Internet from a minor. Cary Silkin would eventually acquire full ownership of the company.
Over the years, the company would not only secure television and pay-per-view, it would also establish itself as a proving ground for young talent and one of the best promotions in the world. In 2011, broadcast carrier Sinclair Broadcast Group acquired Ring of Honor Wrestling and all its properties. ROH currently airs in syndication on the SBG family of television stations, as well as online and through their own streaming service, Honor Club
