According to a new report ticket sales for ROH Final Battle 2023 are struggling to match 2022.
Ring of Honor’s final pay-per-view of 2023 will take place on December 15th as the promotion heads to the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas for Final Battle. While the show is one of ROH’s showpiece events, ticket sales have been slow.
According to the most recent update from Wrestle Tix, just 1,095 tickets have been sold. By comparison, the 2022 edition of the event drew a crowd of 2,700 fans.
On that occasion, the card played host to the Dog Collar Match between FTR and The Briscoes for the ROH World Team Titles. At the end of the acclaimed bout which signaled the end of a trilogy of violent matches between the two teams, The Briscoes claimed the win and the Tag Team Titles. The match was the last time Jay and Mark Briscoe would team together in Ring of Honor as Jay sadly passed away on January 17th, 2023.
Elsewhere on the show, Athena won the Women’s Title, Claudio Castagnoli won the ROH World Title, and Samoa Joe won the World Television Title.
