Tony Khan's first show as Ring of Honor booker will be at Supercard of Honor. 

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer noted that Khan will be handling creative for the company's return show on April 1 from Dallas, Texas. 

"They did the sale as quick as they could and now they're trying to figure out exactly what they're going to do," Meltzer said. "The key is Tony Khan is going to be booking a show on April 1, which isn't very far away and we don't have a lineup. It's going to be very tricky to put together a lineup. I would presume that there will be a bunch of AEW guys on the show just because there's nobody, as in zero, people under Ring of Honor contract." 

Meltzer also commented on plans for the pay-per-view in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter

"All plans previous are off and Khan will be handling the creative, but they are not looking at starting from scratch and eliminating champions and such or killing prior storylines," Meltzer wrote. 

It is believed that ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham vs. Bandido will still headline the show but that's something the AEW president would have to sign off on. 

It was also noted in the newsletter that ROH employees are expecting to be laid off by Sinclair imminently.
