The network decided to only air the later showing due to dropping numbers. Ring of Honor had done tremendously in the first four weeks, but the numbers started dropping as of late.

There appears to be a chance that ROH might not be on Destination America for a very long period of time. The latest news from this developmental is that Joe Koff was only given a six month contract from the channel.
