ROH Final Battle News: Injuries, Production Issues

-- There were many production issues backstage during the show, and Jim Cornette was said to be very frustrated. This was the first show that Dan Bynum directed and the company had everyone wearing headsets so Bynum could communicate with the production crew and cameramen.
-- The promotion is planning to bring in some outside talent for their taping in Baltimore, MD on January 7, 2012. This will be under the guise of an open door policy, where anyone can challenge the ROH champions. Talks are ongoing about bringing in talent from NOAH - Japanese and American - for various events in 2012.
