AEW President and CEO Tony Khan had a conversation with Sports Illustrated on a number of topics such as why ROH’s Final Battle PPV Event will be airing in the afternoon rather than the evening, which is usually the time a PPV Event airs.
Tony Khan said:
“The college football landscape changes on that day, so it’s a unique opportunity for us to run in the afternoon and see if there is a market for us. There is a great game between Army and Navy, but it’s not a typical big-conference college football Saturday. It’s a great opportunity for us.”
“It will be different for us in the afternoon, but we’re excited for it. We’re going to deliver a great show for wrestling fans.”
ROH’s Final Battle PPV Event will take place on Saturday, December 10 from the College Park Center in Arlington, Texas at 4PM ET.
