ROH WOMEN'S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH...
“The Fallen Goddess” Athena(c) (w/ Billie Starkz) vs. “Legit” Leyla Hirsch
“The Fallen Goddess” Athena has been ROH Women's World Champion for nearly 300 days, in fact should she make it to Friday with the title still in her possession, Athena will actually hit that milestone; all she has to do is defeat her 17th challenger on Thursday night. As she stated in her above embedded tirade directed at Billie Starks, Athena is slated to step into the ring with “Legit” Leyla Hirsch for her next defense, a woman who's on a 10 match singles win streak in Ring of Honor, and actually hasn't lost a one-on-one bout in ROH or AEW since the March 18, 2022 edition of RAMPAGE! But she's also a woman who's got a lot on her plate aside from the match, most notably the attention of one Maria Kanellis-Bennett
So with this first ever bout between Athena and Leyla Hirsch, will it be the winning streak of “The Fallen Goddess” that remains intact, or will it be that of Hirsch? Will the former continue building her legacy as champion, seemingly destined to be “The Forever Champ” in reality as well as in her own mind, or will the latter bring it all to a sudden end in Seattle?
Satoshi Kojima vs. Tony Nese
Making his first appearance for Ring of Honor at FINAL BATTLE 2003 where he defeated “The Notorious 187” Homicide, Satoshi Kojima made several appearances for ROH over the years, including facing Jay Lethal for the ROH World Championship in 2016 during the G1 Climax and challenging for the ROH World Six-Man Titles on May 8, 2019, making his final appearance on May 12th a few days later.
But this Thursday night on Honor Club, the multi-time World Champion will return to Ring of Honor to take on Tony Nese in singles competition! This is one of the biggest fights Nese has had since coming into the ROH fold, and it would skyrocket Tony's profile on an international scale if he can defeat Kojima on Honor Club. Fans got to see Kojima in action during the WRESTLEDREAM: ZERO HOUR, and now they've got a second opportunity this week during Ring of Honor! This man is a one of those legends of Japanese wrestling who can still throw with the best even after 32 years of in-ring combat, so do not miss out on your chance to see Satoshi Kojima compete!
