WOH World Title To Be Defended In Atlanta

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Atlanta on Saturday, Jan. 12 for an international television taping at Center Stage. All the top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss, action-packed event.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the happenings in Atlanta undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

The Women of Honor World Championship was one of the most hotly contested championships in ROH in 2018, with Sumie Sakai needing to defeat Tenille Dashwood and Kelly Klein in the same night to become the inaugural champion before defending it globally against the world’s best. “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein ultimately ended her reign in dominant fashion by defeating Karen Q., Madison Rayne, and Champion Sumie at Final Battle.

With Kelly declaring every match against her a Championship match, competitors are lining up for the opportunity to get in the ring with the Champ. And the title will be on the line in Atlanta!

WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPION “THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. “WILD THING” ROCKELLE VAUGHN

Kelly Klein puts her Women of Honor Championship on the line when she defends it against a woman making her Women of Honor debut, “Wild Thing” Rockelle Vaughn! Rockelle made her name on the Southern and Southwest independent circuits, most notably in Booker T.’s Reality of Wrestling before earning her stripes in promotions like SHINE.

Under normal circumstances, a match signed like this between the Champion and a top prospect, even a blue chipper like Rockelle, would be a non-title affair, but “The Gatekeeper” has turned the circumstances on their head, making every match a Championship match from here on out.

Will lightning strike and will we see Rockelle pull off the ultimate upset or will Kelly continue her path of dominance? Join us to find out!
