Title Match Announced For ROH Final Battle PPV

Ring of Honor is slated to hold their Final Battle pay-per-view event on December 14, 2018 in Manhattan, New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom. ROH issued the following:

Ring of Honor’s seminal event, Final Battle, emanates from Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday Dec. 14. Final Battle is ROH’s biggest card of the year and has been the site of some of ROH’s most memorable matches.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the results at Final Battle undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb will be appearing at his first Final Battle, and his title will be on the line against “Hangman” Adam Page of “The Elite.”

Both champion and challenger are among the very best competitors in ROH, but they’ve taken very different paths to the top.

Cobb stormed onto the scene in ROH over the summer by interrupting Top Prospect Tournament matches and destroying the competitors. After the third attack, Cobb declared that the tournament was over because he is the top prospect.

The former Olympic wrestler representing Guam wasted no time in making good on his bold assertion. In his first ROH match, which took place at the end of September, Cobb won the ROH World Television Title by steamrolling Punishment Martinez in 90 seconds. Martinez, who had been a dominant champion, was no match whatsoever for the powerhouse from Honolulu, who put him down with his devastating Tour of the Islands powerslam.

Since capturing the title, Cobb has scored one impressive victory after another, including over the likes of Grand Slam Champion Christopher Daniels, New Japan Pro-Wrestling star EVIL and Shane Taylor. The nine-year pro also won the prestigious Battle of Los Angeles tournament.

After Cobb’s win over Taylor, Page came down to the ring and got in the champion’s face. On an episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” two weeks prior, Page made it known that he was looking for a shot at a singles title, and it was now apparent that his sights were set on Cobb and the ROH World Television Title. (Tune into upcoming episodes of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” to see how this rivalry escalates.)

Unlike Cobb, Page’s rise in ROH has been more gradual. Page competed in the 2013 Top Prospect Tournament, but he was eliminated in the first round by Silas Young. The following year, Page served as a “young boy” for The Decade, a faction led by BJ Whitmer. Page eventually left The Decade and began realizing his vast potential in 2016, especially after joining Bullet Club.

Page was named ROH’s Breakout Star of 2017, as he established himself as one of the best all-around competitors in the company. He got his first taste of championship gold in ROH by teaming with The Young Bucks to win the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles. Their reign lasted a record 201 days. Singles gold has remained elusive for Page, but he is looking to rectify that at the expense of Cobb at Final Battle.

Will Cobb make “The Hangman” his next victim,, or will Page bring home the ROH World Television Title to “The Elite?”
