Ring of Honor’s last pay-per-view of the year, Final Battle, made for some excellent entertainment. It was my first Ring of Honor pay-per-view and their first of a new era.
ROH signed a television deal with Sinclair Broadcasting in May and began weekly episodes on its new home in late September.
Final Battle delivered some great matches and incredible drama, but it failed to deliver a satisfying main event.
*Three things you should know before you begin:
1) I’ve been an on-again-off-again wrestling fan. I watched from 2000-2005 and a few months in 2007. You’ve probably already guessed that CM Punk’s promo brought me back.
2) I had never watched Ring of Honor before September. I know little of the rich history or tradition of ROH, or independent wrestling in general.
3) This is the first in what is intended to be a weekly series of Ring of Honor reviews. Subsequent reviews will be posted until I am caught up.
