Tony Khan Explains Why ROH Final Battle Will Air In The Afternoon


The ROH Final Battle event will take place from the University of Texas at Arlington on Saturday, December 10th, with a special start time of 4 PM Eastern. 

AEW/ROH owner Tony Khan commented to Sports Illustrated about starting the event in the afternoon rather than the evening. WWE will hold NXT Deadline on Peacock on the night of December 10th, although Final Battle was announced before this NXT special.

“The college football landscape changes on that day, so it’s a unique opportunity for us to run in the afternoon and see if there is a market for us. There is a great game between Army and Navy, but it’s not a typical big-conference college football Saturday. It’s a great opportunity for us.

It will be different for us in the afternoon, but we’re excited for it. We’re going to deliver a great show for wrestling fans.”

It will be the third ROH pay-per-view in the Tony Khan period of ownership, and according to Khan, the first two (April’s Supercard of Honor and July’s Death Before Dishonor) broke sales records for the organization.
