ROH Final Battle will undergo a shake-up due to COVID-19 pre-travel testing protocols.
ROH announced EC3, Bandido, Flamita, and Kenny King have all been sent home and won't appear at Final Battle on December 18.
All four performers are said to be doing well and resting.
With the health and safety of Ring of Honor’s talent, staff and fans the company’s No. 1 priority during the pandemic, ROH enacted stringent COVID-19 protocols in conjunction with the Maryland State Athletic Commission.
As a result of pre-travel testing, the following performers will not appear at the Final Battle pay-per-view on Dec. 18:
All four performers are doing well and resting at home. ROH wishes them a speedy recovery and looks forward to their return to action in 2021.
All other ROH performers, production staff and general staff are safely in the ROH bubble after passing their second round of tests.
Changes to the Final Battle card given this development will be announced during Final Battle Hour One, which airs free from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern on Best on the Planet, STIRR City, Facebook, YouTube, FITE, pay-per-view and for HonorClub members on ROHWrestling.com.
EC3 was scheduled to face Jay Briscoe while Flamita & Bandido were teaming with Rey Horus to defend the ROH Six-Man Tag Titles against Shane Taylor & Soldiers of Savagery (Moses & Kaun). Kenny King had yet to be announced for the show.
Fightful will report on the changes made to ROH Final Battle when they are made official.
