Sumie Sakai And Tenille Dashwood Face Off In The WOH Championship Tournament Semi-Finals

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 for HonorClub 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!
Tenille Dashwood shocked the world when she appeared in Concord, NC to assert her claim as the 16th and final entry into the tournament to crown the first Women of Honor Champion! The international sensation takes on a star that was part of the very first women’s match in ROH history in 2002 and has been at the top of her game ever since, Sumie Sakai!

TENILLE DASHWOOD vs. SUMIE SAKAI

The Semifinals of the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor Champion see a first-time singles bout between two international stars who have been wrestling at an international level since they were teenagers!

Tenille turned a love for professional wrestling into global excursions at a young age, training first in her native Australia before traveling the globe to train at the Lance Storm Wrestling Academy in Canada and becoming an international star in short order thereafter. Tenille seized the opening and opportunity to be the 16th competitor in the Women of Honor Championship tournament, pinning Stacy Shadows and Brandi Rhodes following her devastating Spotlight kick to advance to the tournament’s final four!

In New Orleands, Tenille will face Sumie Sakai! Sumie is one of the most accomplished female stars in the world, being broken into the sport by Jaguar Yakota and later Lioness Asuka. Sumie made history in 2002 when she defeated Simply Lucious in the first-ever women’s match in ROH history and since then has remained not only one of the division’s most-recognizable but also top stars! Last October, Sumie made history again as the only Women of Honor star to compete in all four nights of the Global Wars Tour! To get to the semifinals, Sumie defeated Oedo Tai’s Hana Kimura and Kagetsu in successive bouts, all while having to have eyes in the back of her head to watch out for the rest of the group!

Tenille and Sumie meet for the first time one-on-one in New Orleans with the winner going to compete later that night to become the first-ever Women of Honor Champion! The crowd favorite may be Tenille, one of the very best wrestlers in the world who has earned this opportunity quickly into her Women of Honor tenure. But the sentimental favorite has to be Sumie Sakai, a woman who says coming to the United States to compete in Ring of Honor in 2002 changed her life. Tenille and Sumie crossed paths at Manhattan Mayhem, albeit briefly, and the world saw two world-class competitors do battle. We will see these two stars go at it for the first-time one-on-one in New Orleans!

The world will see this first-time, Semifinal bout in the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor Champion LIVE, for free on Ring of Honor’s Facebook Live! With so much at stake, Tenille and Sumie 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 Kelly Klein versus Mayu Iwatani? 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!
