Powell’s POV: It was announced in the Eck’s Files blog at the ROH website that the first hour of Final Battle will be broadcast free via social media platforms and on the pay-per-view platforms starting at 6CT/7ET. I like the idea of advertising it as a free hour of the show rather than listing it a one-hour pre-show. ROH added the Love vs. Manic, Castle and Hendry vs. Young and Woods, and the King vs. Titus matches since our last update. The pay-per-view portion of Final Battle will air on pay-per-view television, FITE TV, and the HonorClub streaming service on Friday at 7CT/8ET. FITE.TV lists the price as $34.99.
