News & Backstage Notes Coming Out Of ROH Final Battle 2014

- Before the show started, the entire roster came out to the ring as Nigel McGuinness presented former ROH owner and current ambassador Cary Silkin with a "Lifetime Achievement Award", something they've previously given Bruno Sammartino, Bret Hart and Jerry Lynn. Silkin took the microphone and told the crowd that this would be, "one of the best f***ing Final Battle's you'll ever see".

- The big screen on the stage was named the "Carytron" by color commentator Steve Corino, much like how WWE's big screen is called the "Titantron".

- Noelle Foley, daughter of WWE Hall of Famer and ROH alumnus Mick Foley was in attendance and went backstage at the show to meet some of the wrestlers. She posted a picture on Twitter of herself with The Young Bucks right after their match.

- The blood Adam Cole used was fake and he didn't blade. After Briscoe slammed him into the ring post, Cole went under the ring momentarily and when he came back out his face was covered in blood. They used fake blood because Jay Briscoe was already bleeding and they didn't want to be penalized by the New York State Athletic Commission.

- Speaking of the New York State Athletic Commission, the doctor who came out during the match to check on Cole, who Jay Briscoe then ran away was actually the doctor sent by the commission. He agreed to take part in the spot.

- After the show Jay Briscoe and Adam Cole were both helped to the back by referees, Bobby Cruise thanked the fans for coming out but didn't announce a return date. While the show looked very good on TV, the reaction from some people in attendance is that the venue isn't suitable for pro-wrestling because of the balconies. The estimated crowd for the sold-out show was 1,400 with a few hundred of those in the three balconies looking down.
