Hopefully they'll do the same thing this year. They'll probably wait until after the upcoming Philly show though.

I think they should have taken a risk and booked a larger arena but the Hammerstein is the Hammerstein. Its sort of become synonymous with ROH at this point.
It’s hard finding venues in New York. Keep in mind that PPV events require a lot of production, which ROH wants to find themselves in known, predictable hands. A lot of houses have their own crews, and a show like this might even require Union labor. Then there’s the issue of transportation. Hammerstein fits their needs really well, and it’s one of my favorite venues in the world.

How long has it been since ROH has ran New Jersey? Maybe they could do a TV taping in Jersey the day after Final Battle.
Ring of Homicide 2? New Jersey just will never be the same market as Philly or NYC. It’s not worth creating the base there.

Killer Instinct in 2012, actually.

And the show before that was Boiling Point way back in November 2009. We'd like another show, please.

It definitely does feel like a "home base," but at the same time I'd like them to try somewhere bigger. This is freakin' New York City.

It wasn't long ago they were running Terminal 5.

Which was much smaller than Hammerstein and almost universally despised, both by people who went there (myself included) and people trying to show the show on DVD or PPV with a f*cking tilted camera that couldn't even fit the whole ring in the hard-cam shot.

That's my point. People wanting them to move beyond Hammerstein so quickly are forgetting where they were just two years ago.

The growth can be slow, sometimes frustratingly so, but it beats the alternative of trying to grow bigger than you really are artificially. That's a big reason why GFW, Lucha Underground, AAA, and to a lesser extent NOAH are such financial messes.

Apparently tickets are going fast, since Ringside members are able to get tickets today, so I think that's a good sign.

They can find a bigger venue in a years time. Hell, there may be new ones popping up in 2018 they can run.

The issue with Terminal 5 was that it wasn't growth. It was a MUCH smaller building in a less convenient location, and if I remember correctly, you had to be 18 or older to get in.

Sorry I didn't see this thread but what does everyone think of the soaring eagle show? I looked at ticket prices and their way lower than I have ever seen a roh show.

Honor Nation, as Summer turns to Fall, Ring of Honor sets its sights on closing its biggest year with a series of landmark events. Whether its Death Before Dishonor XV Weekend in Las Vegas, the Global Wars Tour, Final Battle , or any of our big shows in Michigan, Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida, the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that defines ROH has become a rite of passage for wrestling fans.

2017 saw the biggest crowds and greatest bouts in ROH history in North America, Europe, and Asia. Now it’s with great excitement that Ring of Honor is proud to announce a very BIG event for 2018 on the calendar: Supercard of Honor XII!

At the time of announcement, we can confirm that stars from New Japan will take part in this event, and there will be the return of Festival of Honor, featuring all-day autograph signings, photo opportunities, trivia, and Q&A sessions with ROH stars. Much more to come later!

That arena holds like 9,000 people.

What a step up. It's a risk but I think they can fill it if they can get a hot program with Omega or the Bucks.
