For Angelina Love and Quinn McKay, it was basically hate at first sight.
The seven-time world champion and ROH’s popular on-air personality started off on the wrong foot last year, and the ill feelings between them only intensified from there. The fact that Love and McKay haven’t been in each other’s presence in five months has done nothing to subdue the animosity.
Case in point: Love demanded that she be given air time on the latest episode of “ROH Week by Week,” which is hosted by McKay, to address remarks McKay made about her on the previous episode of the YouTube series.
After the “Signatures Moves” segment on last week’s show, McKay quipped that if she was a wrestler, her signature move would be a snap powerslam and she’d deliver it to Love. Not surprisingly, that didn’t sit well with the “badass” of The Allure.
“Well, Quinn, I’m sure over the last year in Ring of Honor you’ve seen how well it doesn’t turn out for people who talk trash about me,” Love said. “So next time, why don’t you just make sure my name does not come out of your mouth.”

I think McKay should take Love’s advice. After all, Love is one of the most accomplished women’s wrestlers in the world, and McKay is a civilian, not a wrestler.
Love has shown that she won’t hesitate to get physical with the diminutive McKay. At an ROH live event late last year, Love violently shoved the bespectacled, bow-tie-wearing interviewer to the mat during an in-ring segment.
Kenny King was my guest on the latest episode of the “ROHStrong Podcast,” which drops Monday, Aug. 3 on ROHWrestling.com and most podcast platforms.
The former ROH World Television and World Tag Team champion opened up about his ROH career, including: the circumstances of him leaving in 2012 and returning in 2015; the friction between him and Rhett Titus when they began teaming as The All Night Express; his best-of-three series against Jay Lethal; and forming La Faccion Ingobernable with RUSH, Dragon Lee and Amy Rose.
King also talked about being on “Tough Enough” and “The Bachelorette,” as well as his appearance on the “ROH Roundtable” YouTube series to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement.
My scheduled guest for the podcast episode that drops Aug. 10 is a former champion in ROH who is currently a free agent.
Speaking of King, he and Shane Taylor recently spoke to Forbes about the “ROH Roundtable” show and race in pro wrestling. The interview is definitely worth checking out.
