ROH has announced their Women of Honor title has been replaced by a new Women’s World Championship.
The announcement explains:
To emphasize ROH’s commitment to women’s wrestling, a new Ring of Honor Women’s World Championship has been created. This title will replace the Women of Honor Title and carry the utmost prestige as only the best competitors will earn its gold.
The tournament to crown the inaugural champion begins with eight first-round matches at “Quest For Gold” on Friday, April 24 at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena. The tournament will feature talent from all over the world, including some new faces who have never competed in ROH.
“Quest For Gold” tickets go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. ET for HonorClub members and Friday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. ET for the general public.
Kelly Klein was the final Women of Honor champion before parting with the company last year. As you’ll recall, Klein suffered a concussion in October while defending the belt. She then spoke out against how the company handled her injury and was informed her contract would not be renewed.
Participants for the upcoming tournament have yet to be revealed.
