ROH had to close up for most of 2020 due to the pandemic. They were able to make television tapings work eventually due to a strict bubble and protocol. Now they are getting back to business with live fans once again.
The company announced today that July 11th’s Best In The World Event will be the first ROH event since the pandemic with live fans. The Baltimore event will observe a limited capacity protocol as well. This pay-per-view event will emanate from the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena.
As always, the health and well-being of fans are ROH’s top priorities. The event will have limited capacity, and “pod” seating will be implemented to ensure proper social distancing of six feet between each group of ticket holders. Additionally, temperatures will be taken upon entry and masks will be required to be worn by all attendees throughout the event.
Pods are available in all ticket quantities throughout the arena up to a maximum of six seats per group. For larger orders, fans can contact ROH directly at email@example.com before tickets go on-sale to help ensure they get seats as close together as possible.
Final health and safety policies will be provided approximately 2-3 weeks before the event as the pandemic conditions and government guidelines continue to change. Any refund requests due to the conditions of the pandemic or stringency of health and safety policies will be honored.
This is a big step for ROH as they were one of the more cautious pro wrestling companies during the pandemic. The operated with a very strict quarantine bubble, even sending stars home with negative COVID-19 tests due to possible exposure to the virus.
