The Final Battle festivities kick off at 2 PM. 

In December, the Ring of Honor brand will have its next pay-per-view in ‘Final Battle’. The event is emanating from the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. 

There is going to be an early start time for the event as it’ll begin at 2 PM local time with the ‘Zero Hour’ pre-show and then 3 PM local time for the main card. Ring of Honor owner Tony Khan gave a comment to Sports Illustrated about having the event start in the afternoon opposed to evening. 

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.

There are no matches announced for Final Battle as of this writing but it is noted in the Sports Illustrated article that ROH World Champion Chris Jericho, Bryan Danielson and ROH World Tag Team Champions FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) are confirmed for the event.
