Kelly Klein and Mayu Iwatani Meet In The Semi-Finals Of The WOH Championship Tournament

The tournament to crown the first Women of Honor Champion concludes at Supercard of Honor, with the two Semifinal matches taking place for everyone to see on Ring of Honor’s Facebook Live starting at 7:30 PM ET and the Finals airing on Supercard of Honor, an event being broadcast LIVE and FREE for ALL HonorClub members beginning at 8:30 PM ET!

The international field of the best women’s professional wrestlers in the world has gone from 16 to four and one of the remaining four women will make history and become the first-ever Women of Honor Champion!

In the first match to air on Facebook Live, an athlete known as The Icon of Stardom and someone that has been recognized among the best wrestlers, male or female in the world, takes on a woman that has never been pinned or submitted and that has dominated Women of Honor since its relaunch in 2015!

WOMEN OF HONOR CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINAL MATCH
“THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. MAYU IWATANI

Kelly Klein has been the most dominant athlete in the history of Women of Honor. For over a year and a half, Kelly was undefeated and her only official blemish coming via a controversial count out loss. Kelly has never been pinned or submitted with her victories against some of the biggest stars in the world ending more often than not with her devastating End of the Match guillotine choke. Kelly defeated Bonesaw Brooks and Mandy Leon to reach the semifinals.

Kelly’s strength and ground-and-pound submission style may be the key to defeating someone as accomplished as Mayu! The announcement of Mayu participating in the tournament to crown the first Women of Honor Champion made international headlines as the Stardom original has held five unique championships there, including their most prestigious title, the World of Stardom Championship! Mayu defeated HZK and Deonna Purrazzo to reach the semifinals.

This first-time bout is a dream match many Women of Honor fans were hoping for on social media and the world will see it LIVE, for free on Ring of Honor’s Facebook Live! With so much at stake, Kelly and Mayu will undoubtedly leave nothing to chance to compete for the opportunity to become the first-ever Women of Honor Champion later that night when the winners of the Semifinal bouts compete during Supercard of Honor, broadcast for all HonorClub members!

Who will punch their ticket to the Finals? And will either woman have enough in the tank to defeat the winner of Tenille Dashwood versus Sumie Sakai? Tune into ROH’s Facebook Live at 7:30 ET/4:30 PT to see the Semifinals of the Women of Honor Championship Tournament and a special Press Conference featuring “The American Nightmare” Cody and Kenny Omega prior to their historic match!

Supercard of Honor XII will emanate from the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, LA on Saturday April 7! Like last year’s history-making event, this event will feature high profile stars and very special matches for all of our fans around the world.  Stars from New Japan will take part in this event, and there will be the return of Festival of Honor, featuring all-day autograph signings, Q&A sessions with ROH stars, the Women of Honor Championship Tournament semi-final matches and Finals, and more!

Last year’s Supercard was the most attended event in ROH history, when thousands of fans from around the globe descended on Lakeland, Florida. This April, The Best Wrestling on the Planet has already shattered that record in the Big Easy! Based on the high demand for recent major events, you will want to act fast to ensure you get the best seats and not get locked out of the action! And if you cannot join us live IN New Orleans, join us as this historic event will be broadcast LIVE for HonorClub!
