ROH's Final Battle is in the books, and Fightful has learned a lot of notes surrounding the show.
- Much of the roster got into town Friday evening, and had a 2:30 call time Saturday.
- Braun Strowman and FTR were kept hidden heavily, and very few people knew of their participation in the show. Deonna Purrazzo and Westin Blake (Wesley Blake) were not hidden and were seen around the venue all day.
- Many of the roster were treating it as a "goodbye," as opposed to a "see you in April." There were numerous wrestlers saying goodbye to Cary Silkin, and taking photos with each other.
- The main event was drastically cut down from about 24-25 minutes to about 15-16 minutes. There were timing issues during the show and there was a hard out for 10:59 PM.
- Sledge was okay after his crazy dive to the outside of the ring.
- There were things filmed for episodes of ROH TV through the end of the year, including a Christmas episode.
- Gino Medina was in town for the show.
