Former two-time Ring of Honor World Tag Champion and one-half of The Addiction, Frankie Kazarian addressed rumours surrounding WWE adding Ring of Honor to the WWE Network during an interview with CBS Local Sport's Chuck Carroll.

He was quoted as saying:

"I heard bits and pieces about that and found it interesting.

I don’t know if it was one of those 'keep your enemies close'-type deals or trying to corner a part of the market before it has the ability to grow and come up, I don’t know what their motivation is. World domination in wrestling? It seems like that’s what they always want.

Ring of Honor is doing quite well standing alone and is very popular with an incredibly loyal fan base. Who knows what will happen or can’t happen. I think the mindset right now is that Ring of Honor is doing fine and growing at a rate everyone is happy with."

Kazarian briefly worked for the WWE in 2005 but requested and received his release after he found that the company had no plans to revamp its Cruiserweight division at the time. Kazarian spent some time on the Independent circuit and then wrestled for nearly a decade in TNA before joining Ring of Honor in 2014. 

Kazarian has spent a major portion of his ROH career wrestling in the tag team division with former TNA superstar Christopher Daniels as The Addiction.

The WWE-ROH Network rumours surfaced after WWE emailed a survey to all their Fan Council members, asking them what WWE Network plan would suit them the best. One plan consisted of a $14.99 monthly charge, which would also provide fans access to independent wrestling content such as TNA and Ring of Honor. 

Below is the picture showing all the supposed plans WWE could employ for the Network:

A four-tier plan for the WWE Network?

During the interview with CBS Local Sports, Kazarian also talked about the debut album of his band, Vextemper in which he plays bass. He spoke about the current state of Rock music, working for ROH owners Sinclair Broadcasting Group, and his thoughts on the current state of TNA.
