– ROH head of marketing consultant Court Bauer sent out the following yesterday, effectively confirming that ROH have found a venue to host their biggest event of the year Final Battle in in December in New York City. It’s unknown if ROH will be running the Hammerstein Ballroom or not after Manhattan Center officials rose the rent to such a point that even selling it out doesn’t make a profit.
