Ring of Honor Facing Financial Difficulties?

It has been reported that Sinclair Broadcasting rejected a pitch from Joe Koff of RoH to expand the company as it appears that they want the company for consistent programming but are not looking to invest strongly or even take chances to build it up. Also, Sinclair has told the company to “tighten” it’s spending as their December PPV had less buys (8,000) than expected and their will be much less wrestlers brought into the company going forward. Some talent like Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett, and Maria are not currently under contract as a result.
