Re: Mississauga, Ontario - "Glory By Honor XI" 10/13/12
-- Ring of Honor is reporting "just under" 1,500 live and replay iPPV buys for their "Glory By Honor XI" event on Saturday. This includes "around 300 freebies." ROH also noted they had 350 first-time PPV buyers.
It appears ROH released the numbers publicly to show business improvements in the face of questions about the state of the promotion. In August, ROH drew fewer than half of this month's iPPV buys, so the number is a positive for ROH.
-- ROH reported attendance of 900 people for the live iPPV event in Ontario, Canada.
-- On the injury front, the biggest injury reported by ROH is Mike Mondo (formerly Mikey in WWE's Spirit Squad). Mondo, who has re-invented his character, reportedly suffered a broken tibia. Doctors in Canada recommended surgery and he will receive a second opinion on Monday. ROH added: "There is no word on how long this will keep Mondo out of action."
Two other injuries include Harlem Bravado, who suffered a broken nose but will not miss ring time, and manager Truth Martini, who suffered a deep cut on his right leg after Rhino threw him into a guardrail.
