Kelly Klein wasted no time putting Women of Honor competitors on notice that the landscape had changed with her arrival. Possessing an impressive combination of physicality, mat wrestling and submission mastery, Klein made her WOH debut in October 2015 by scoring a one-minute victory over Ray Lyn. Known as “The Gatekeeper” and “Pretty Badass,” Klein would go on to be undefeated for 533 days before losing by countout to Karen Q. Klein did not suffer her first pinfall loss until April 2018, when she was defeated by Sumie Sakai in the tournament final to crown the inaugural WOH World Champion.

Klein became the second WOH World Champion when she scored of all the eliminations in a four-way match involving Sakai, Madison Rayne and Karen Q at Final Battle in December 2018. After losing the title to Mayu Iwatani in February 2019, Klein became the first two-time WOH World Champion when she beat Iwatani at G1 Supercard in April 2019 before a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden. Klein has also had success in Japan, where she and Bea Priestley won the Goddess of Stardom Tag League tournament in 2017.
