The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Columbus for a night of the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action only Ring of Honor can bring! The Experience comes to the capital city for our debut at Express Live! for what will be the most interactive show in ROH history.
Fans will have the opportunity to choose who will face the Kingdom, or whoever the champions will be, for the ROH World Six Man titles in the main event! For the first time in ROH history, fan voting for those live in Columbus will determine who will compete for the titles. Fans will be able to choose among 10 ROH stars and set the three-man team who could become new World Six Man Champs!
In addition, the ROH Executive Board has been working tirelessly to sign first-time bouts and grudge matches for The Experience. Our return to Columbus last year proved Buckeye State fans are hungry for the Best Wrestling on the Planet and we are committed to delivering a pro wrestling experience unlike any other!
The Women of Honor will be in action in Columbus and a grudge match has been signed!
KELLY KLEIN vs. SCARLETT BORDEAUX
For well over one year, Kelly Klein has remained undefeated in Women of Honor competition. “The Gatekeeper” has made her opponents tap with the guillotine choke she has labeled The End of the Match.
At Global Wars, Kelly used The End of the Match to defeat Crazy Mary Dobson in emphatic fashion. But what happened after the match may have been even more memorable: Klein’s then-manager B.J. Whitmer got in the face of ring announcer Scarlett Bourdeaux and made her announce Kelly as the most dominant wrestler in the world. Since then, confrontations took place wherever Kelly was signed to compete, including a very public display in Collinsville.
Then, Kelly put her hands on Scarlett following the main event of the first-ever Women of Honor live event. If it weren’t for Sumie Sakai saving Scarlett, the damage could have ended Scarlett’s time in Women of Honor.
Scarlett had not been seen in Women of Honor from July until December when she returned as the ring announcer for a bout between Sumie and Deonna Purrazzo. With injuries healed and fear behind her, Scarlett issued a challenge to Kelly.
Some have called it brave and a display of courage. Others called it a watershed moment in letting Scarlett’s emotions overtake her safety.
Scarlett has never officially competed in a Women of Honor bout since the brand’s revival but she has set a date for her debut because the challenge has been answered. On Sunday, February 12, after months of bullying and healing from Kelly’s devastating attack, Scarlett will jump in the deep end and go toe to toe with Kelly in Columbus!
ROHWrestling.com has learned that Scarlett has been training in preparation – meanwhile, it may be telling that Kelly took nearly a month to sign the contract, dismissing Scarlett as any sort of threat as Kelly moves closer by the day to reaching 500 consecutive days undefeated. It is Kelly versus Scarlett at The Experience!
These two Women of Honor will collide at The Experience in Columbus! There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of Ring of Honor – join us at Express Live! for The Experience!
