The fallout from the Global Wars tour will be felt in Philadelphia as the stars of Ring of Honor descend upon the 2300 Arena for a night of fast-paced, in-your-face action that only ROH can deliver! All of your favorite ROH stars will be there!
And the Women of Honor will be in action, as well! One of the most-heated rivalries in Women of Honor history comes to a head in the City of Brotherly Love! For the very first time in Ring of Honor, two former best friends and training partners do battle in Philly!
WOMEN OF HONOR
“THE VITRUOSA” DEONNA PURRAZZO vs. KAREN Q.
Karen Q. shocked the world when, in her debut match, she defeated the then-undefeated “Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein, doing something no one had ever done. Well, almost no one.
While Kelly has still yet to officially been pinned or submitted, Deonna Purrazzo forced Kelly to tap out via her Fujiwara Armbar and the largest crowd in ROH history was there to witness it. The only person that didn’t see it was the one that mattered the most, referee Paul Turner.
When Karen defeated Kelly, doing something her best friend and training partner never did, Deonna was the first one to congratulate Karen. And when Karen pinned Deonna in a triple threat also featuring Kelly in the main event of the third-ever Women of Honor television special, Deonna gave Karen her due.
But with success has come a measure of paranoia for Karen. Following a victory over Stella Grey, Karen took exception to Deonna leaving the commentary table to congratulate Karen on her win and to celebrate Stella’s first match in an arena. Later that night, Karen interfered in the biggest rematch in Women of Honor history when Deonna faced Kelly and cost Deonna the match.
Things came to a boiling point between these two former best friends in Atlanta when Deonna charged the ring after being instigated from the ring by Karen, following a Karen victory. With the two unable to keep their hands off one another, these two former training partners will look to settle the score in Philadelphia!
It is Karen versus Deonna for the first time in Women of Honor in the City of Brotherly Love!
