– The advanced ticket sales for Ring of Honor’s debut at The Brooklyn Cyclones’ MCU Park are good at this juncture and this has excited many people in the company. Following Best In The World, ROH officials view this as their next “big” show, despite it not planned to be on pay-per-view. ROH have agreed for two PPV’s with providers for this year as a test to see how many they could do next year, contracts like those are very hard to work around, but an iPPV is highly likely as ROH want to keep up their working relationship with uStream following the success of their two most recent iPPV’s.
Plans for the show are to stack it as much as possible. The show takes place the weekend after New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax but ROH won’t be looking to bring in any talent representing NJPW, as they want to bring Kazuchika Okada back for Final Battle in December and feel that’s enough to ask of the working relationship for this year. The expectation is that AJ Styles will be announced for the show closer to the date which will bumper ticket sales, and that once they start announcing names for the show guys like Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian will also feature. They will also have a number of part-timers available as many won’t be taking part in NJPW’s events during the G1 Climax such as The Young Bucks and The Forever Hooligans.
