Ring of Honor (ROH) is an American professional wrestling promotion, founded in 2002 by RF Video owner Rob Feinstein. From 2004 to 2011, the promotion was under the ownership of Cary Silkin before being sold to the Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG), an American telecommunications company that operates the largest number of local television stations in the United States, before being sold in 2017 to the WWE.

ROH holds TV tapings, pay-per-view events, live events, and Internet pay-per-view events throughout the United States and Canada. It has also held shows in the United Kingdom and Japan. Annual shows include the Anniversary Show, Supercard of Honor (held annually during WrestleMania weekend), Best in the World, Global Wars, Death Before Dishonor, Glory By Honor, and Final Battle (the last show of the calendar year and ROH's marquee event).

ROH records all of its shows and sells them on DVD through mail order via its online store, the DVDs have developed a fanbase for the promotion in the United States and beyond. In 2009, ROH signed a television deal with HDNet, which aired shows every week until 2011. As of September 2011, ROH's flagship broadcast Ring of Honor Wrestling has been syndicated by Sinclair Broadcasting, and airs on Sinclair owned stations across the country, the company was owned by Sinclair Broadcasting from 2011 until 2017 when it was bought out by WWE. ROH is also broadcast on Samurai TV in Japan, and is the third-largest professional wrestling promotion in the United States, behind WWE and after Impact Wrestling.

On June 22, 2014, ROH had its first live pay-per-view broadcast, Best in the World, from Nashville, Tennessee. It was followed-up on December 7 with their biggest show of the year Final Battle, from Terminal 5 in New York City. Their next pay-per-view aired March 1, 2015, which was their 13th Anniversary Show, from Las Vegas, Nevada.
