Mandy Leon and Kelly Klein Meet In The WOH Championship Tournament

For over a year and a half, “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein dominated Women of Honor, reeling off victory after victory, culminating in front of the largest crowd in ROH history when she defeated Deonna Purrazzo in controversial fashion at Supercard of Honor last year in Lakeland. Since then, Kelly has remained dominant, winning singles bouts in the US, Canada, and Japan and even winning the Goddess of Stardom Tag Team Tournament in Stardom with Bea Priestly!

Like Kelly, a woman that was at the forefront of the revitalization of Women of Honor, Mandy Leon, saw her own profile grow in Japan in 2017, as well! With victories over Io Shirai, Toni Storm, HZK, Tam Nakano, and more, Mandy, a woman that won the very first match in the relaunch of Women of Honor, is now an established favorite to become the first-ever Women of Honor Champion.

The two will meet for the VERY FIRST TIME one-on-one in the Quarterfinals of the Tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor Champion at the 16th Anniversary International Television Tapings!

WOMEN OF HONOR CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT QUARTERFINALS

“THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. “THE EXOTIC GODDESS” MANDY LEON

For the first time in Women of Honor history, Mandy Leon and Kelly Klein will meet and the stakes have never been higher for either athlete! Both women stand just three victories away from making history as the first-ever Women of Honor Champion, but the first victory must come in Las Vegas!

In the fight capital of the world, Mandy is tasked with defeating a woman in Kelly that has never been pinned or submitted in Women of Honor competition, whose only loss has come by count out! For Kelly, her devastating guillotine choke known as The End of the Match has been the deciding factor in nearly every bout in which she has competed. But will she be able to lock it in against Mandy, who trained extensively in submission grappling before traveling to Japan to compete in Stardom’s 5STAR Grand Prix?

The winner of this bout will face the winner of international superstar “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo and former World of Stardom Champion Mayu Iwatani. With these four women remaining on one side of the bracket, the possibilities and combinations for the tournament’s semi-finals have fans buzzing already. We will find out who advances to the Final Four of the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor Champion and compete at Supercard of Honor in New Orleans in Vegas!
