– Last night’s ROH Field of Honor event drew about 2,200 people at the MCU Field in Brooklyn, New York. The card was held on the same night as NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

– Shinsuke Nakamura and KUSHIDA reportedly brought their families from Japan for the ROH shows this weekend.

– At last night’s ROH event there was reportedly an “Honor Cow” mascot walking around and taking pictures with fans. The Honor Cow later had a race with Cheeseburger and tripped him in order to win. Cheeseburger later tackled Honor Cow and ripped off his mask, who was actually Steve Corino. Corino then wore the costume all night while doing commentary for the show’s DVD release.

– There were huge lines for autographs for the NJPW talents at this weekend’s ROH events, with the top star being Nakamura.
