ROH Final Battle GMT Time: UK Fans Set for Midnight Showdown

For UK viewers, the event kicks off at the stroke of midnight on Saturday, December 16th.

This timing allows fans in the UK to be part of the action in real time, despite the time difference with the event’s location in the United States.

A New Era Under Tony Khan

2023 marks the first full year of ROH under the ownership of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) owner Tony Khan, who acquired the company in February 2022.

The transition has brought significant changes, including the shift of weekly ROH television to the revamped Honor Club starting in March 2023.

Challenges and Triumphs

While ROH has successfully cultivated a dedicated fanbase, the journey hasn’t been without its challenges. Some fans have felt that the cards for ROH’s pay-per-views have sometimes seemed underdeveloped.

This year’s Final Battle is no exception, with the ROH World Championship not being defended for the first time in 16 years of the event’s illustrious history.

The current champion, Eddie Kingston, is instead participating in the Continental Classic tournament.

Spotlight on the Women’s Championship

In a positive turn, the Ring of Honor Women’s Championship is set to take centre stage. Reigning champion Athena will defend her title against Billie Starkz, promising a high-stakes and high-energy match for fans.

  • ROH Women’s Championship Match: Athena (c) vs Billie Starkz
