The partnership between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling has never been stronger and this fall, GLOBAL WARS descends upon the US featuring stars from both great organizations! The tour is highlighted by the United States return of the IWGP UNITED STATES CHAMPION KENNY OMEGA as well as the United States debut of YOSHI-HASHI! All of your favorite ROH stars will be on the tour, like ROH World Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody, the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions Adam Page and the Young Bucks, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Jay Lethal, Silas Young, The Addiction, and more!
New Japan will be represented by former ROH World TV Champion KUSHIDA and rival Hiromu Takahashi, as well as Toru Yano and members of SUZUKI-GUN represented by NEVER Openweight Champion Minoru Suzuki and the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Killer Elite Squad!
Officials from ROH and NJPW have been working around the clock and matches are being signed daily! Due to fan demand, a second Women of Honor match has been added to Thursday, October 12 in Buffalo!
“THE VIRTUOSA” DEONNA PURRAZZO vs. STELLA GREY
Stella Grey competed in her first professional wrestling match in front of a paying crowd with a record Concord, NC crowd in attendance.
Talk about nerves of steel.
While Stella did not pick up a victory, she has remained fearless, taking on the top of the top in Women of Honor. That trend will continue in Buffalo when Stella takes on “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo!
For Stella, this may be a golden opportunity. For weeks, Deonna has been engaged in what seems like a one-sided rivalry with former best friend and training partner Karen Q. Karen did what Deonna could not – at least with the referee’s full attention – defeat the undefeated Kelly Klein. Karen then pinned Deonna in the main event of the third-ever Women of Honor television special.
Deonna was a good sport about the loss but the perception of jealousy, oddly, has been driving Karen mad. The pressure has been wearing on Deonna, as well. With Deonna’s mind on Karen, this is the perfect opportunity for her to pick up the biggest win of her career against one of the best female professional wrestlers in the world.
Will Stella find herself at the intersection of opportunity and execution to pick up the victory? Or will Deonna pick up another Women of Honor victory?
