ROH announces they too can do very long PPV events

WWE’s “Big 4” pay-per-view (PPV) events have turned into half-day events, and New Japan’s Tokyo Dome shows have always been long affairs.

Now, Ring of Honor (ROH) is proving it can hang with the big boys. Their biggest show of the year (unless a WrestleMania weekend event like next April’s G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden becomes an annual fixture) Final Battle is coming up this Fri., Dec. 14, and the company has announced it will be four hours long.

Still not the five - six hours the longer WWE cards and Wrestle Kingdom can run, but it’s a start.

Whether or not the trend toward longer cards is a good thing or not is debateable. It’s more value for subscribers and PPV customers, but if it’s made up of filler...

Is Final Battle bloated? Take a look at the card and let us know what you think:

  • Jay Lethal (c) vs. Cody Rhodes for the ROH World championship
  • Jeff Cobb (c) vs. Adam Page for the ROH TV title
  • SCU (c) vs. The Briscoes vs. The Young Bucks in Ladder War for the ROH Tag Team championships
  • Sumie Sakai (c) vs. Madison Rayne vs. Karen Q vs. Kelly Klein for the Women of Honor title
  • Bully Ray vs. Flip Gordon in an I Quit match
  • Marty Scurll vs. Christopher Daniels (Scurll’s World title shot is on the line)
  • Jonathan Gresham vs. Zack Sabre Jr
  • Matt Taven vs. Dalton Castle
  • Kenny King vs. Eli Isom

Does that line-up entice you to check all four hours of Final Battle out? If so, you can order it on PPV for $34.95 here, or become an HonorClub subscriber here.
