Several TV openings were shot during Final Battle for the ROH TV series.
Former WWE Creative Team member and MLW owner Court Bauer was at tonight's Ring of Honor event as he will be working with the company going forward on some marketing and branding. ROH head Joe Koff brought Bauer on board. Bauer was backstage and watched part of the show from the crowd.
Chris Hero returned to the company at the close of Final Battle, laying out ROH champion Adam Cole and Matt Hardy. Hero will be a big part of the company going forward in 2014. Hero rushed to the venue from Combat Zone Wrestling's Cage of Death. The main event at Final Battle went long as they were waiting for Hero to arrive, which is why the main event went over 30 minutes. The main was awesome, by the way.
The next event at the Hammerstein Ballroom won't be until Saturday 5/14.
Visiting at the show were Rhett Titus, Julius Smokes, Matt Hardy's wife, Reby Sky, WWE author Keith Elliot Greenberg and the entire Brisco clan. Now that Outlaws, Inc. have turned, Smokes would be AWESOME as their mouthpiece.
Homicide and Eddie Kingston went into the crowd after their match because a fan hit Kingston.
Matt Hardy and Adam Cole are now together in ROH storylines.
Jimmy Jacobs, Roderick Strong and BJ Whitmer are now together as a unit called the Decade, playing off the idea that they have been the constant in the company while others have used ROH as a stepping stone. Obviously, Whitmer's neck injury is not as serious as the company first publicly disclosed.
Larry Legend, who has done a ton of ring announcing on the indy scene and in the MMA world, is now working for the company in the merchandise end as well as handling some voiceovers for the TV show.
