Report: ROH & The Hammerstein Ballroom Cut Ties

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Ring of Honor will not be running any more shows at the Manhattan Center or the Hammerstein Ballroom in the near future. According to sources, the New York City complex raised their prices significantly to rent the building out. The venue pushed prices to the point that even if ROH sold out their shows, they would lose money. The company sold out ticket to their last show there weeks in advance without any announced matches at the time.

TNA’s Manhattan Center tapings begin airing tomorrow night and will run through mid-August. The promotion still has a three-day run for the Manhattan Center from August 5th through 7th and may not be able to make money considering they spend more in advertising and expenses running the same complex.

    TNA makes money off the TV show, not live attendance. ROH may of sold out some shows, but as mentioned, it's because ticket prices are so low. For some reason, nobody ever mentions ticket prices when mentioning ticket sales, as if price doesn't have a direct correlation to sales. A $10 ticket will sale much faster than a $30 ticket, for example. Also venues with high parking fees and where people typically pay a ticket fee and other high costs have direct impacts on the price/sales also.

    I guess ROH aren't the untouchables of the Ballroom after all, seems that regardless of their 'sell out shows' they weren't important enough to the Ballroom to negotiate a long term relationship with.

    Dumb business move.

    Someone needs to buy Hammerstein, that likes wrestling.
