Powell’s POV: The refund approach is disappointing in that, given the circumstances, HonorClub subscribers who want to opt out should have the option of having their money refunded rather than only being able to use it on merchandise. With that said, join me for live coverage of the ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view next Saturday night. I will host a same night audio review for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons).
