Ring of Honor wrestling is synonymous with the best-in-ring action in the sport and is known for its athleticism and hard hitting style. ROH is a new style developed by fresh, young stars that incorporates wrestling, mixed martial arts and high-flying. ROH has brought back the meaning of the word wrestling in pro-wrestling and provides the dedicated fan-base with an exciting and electric show, full of athleticism, intensity and passion.
ROH distinguished its image from other wrestling promotions through the "Code of Honor", a set of rules dictating how wrestlers should conduct themselves during matches. The Code of Honor aimed to infuse Ring of Honor's matches with a feel similar to Japanese professional wrestling. Initially, the Code of Honor included five "Laws", mentioned at some point during each ROH production. ROH considered it a moral requirement to follow these rules, which usually appeared in the following order:
1. You must shake hands before and after every match
2. No outside interference
3. No sneak attacks
4. No harming the officials
5. Any action resulting in a disqualification violates the Code of Honor
In early 2004, ROH's booker at the time, Gabe Sapolsky, began to feel that the Code of Honor had run its course. As a result, wrestlers no longer had to follow it. The Code of Honor eventually re-appeared – revamped – as three rules:
1. Shake hands before and after the match if you respect your opponent
2. Keep the playing-field level
3. Respect the officials
