THE CODE AND OTHER RULES + REGULATIONS
-CODE OF HONOR-
The Code of Honor is an understood act intended to promote sportsmanship, respect and honor inside the wrestling ring. The Code of Honor is defined by shaking hands before and after every match. Some ROH stars abide by The Code of Honor and others do not, its all a personal choice.
ROH World Championship: 60 minute time limit
ROH World Tag Team Championship: 45 minute time limit
ROH World Television Championship: 15 minute time limit
-THE PROVING GROUND-
The Proving Ground is a chance for any wrestlers from ROH, or outside ROH to challenge a ROH Champion for the opportunity at a title match. If a challenger beats the champion or lasts the time limit he will get a future shot at the championship. Anytime ROH champions wrestle a match where the championship is not on the line it will be contested under The Proving Ground.
A selected group of ROH officials are the governing authority in Ring of Honor who can create and abolish rules. No one else can change or modify the set rules.
There is a strict policy for following the rules in Ring of Honor. Our referees are highly trained and will not tolerate deliberate rule violations.
