Changes are coming to the ROH Final Battle card due to four wrestlers being off the show.
Ring of Honor announced today that -- as a result of pre-travel COVID-19 testing -- Bandido, EC3, Flamita, and Kenny King will not be appearing at Final Battle. Bandido, Flamita & Rey Horus were supposed to defend their ROH Six-Man Tag Team titles against Shane Taylor & The Soldiers of Savagery at Final Battle. EC3 was set to face Jay Briscoe in a grudge match. King didn't have a match announced for the pay-per-view.
ROH stated that all four wrestlers are doing well and resting at home. It was noted that all other ROH performers and staff are safely in the ROH bubble after passing their second round of tests.
Final Battle will air on PPV and HonorClub starting at 9 p.m. Eastern time next Friday (December 18). Prior to the main card starting, Final Battle Hour One will air for free on several platforms at 8 p.m. Eastern. The changes to the Final Battle card will be announced during Final Battle Hour One.
