ROH Reportedly Calls Audible on Chris Hero Reintroduction Plans at Final Battle

Chris HeroAccording to ProWrestling.net, Chris Hero, formerly known as Kassius Ohno in WWE NXT, was supposed to originally be Eddie Edwards' mystery tag team partner at Final Battle, however, due to Hero arriving late to the event because he was working a CZW event that night, ROH called an audible and had BJ Whitmer come out as Edwards' partner.

The report added the feeling in ROH was that having Hero appear at the end of the show worked out better than the original plan because it ended the show on a high note.
