ROH Women's World Champion Athena will defend her title against “The Native Beast” Nyla Rose in a 2-Of-3 Falls Tables Match, we've got Four Corner Survival action, Ethan Page taking on The Workhorsemen's Anthony Henry, Brandon Cutler versus Danhausen, and so much more!!! The action begins at 7pm ET/6pm CT only on Honor Club, the home for 20+ years of ROH history, the most influential wrestling company of the century! 


First Round

Taya Valkyrie vs. Sussy Love


Billie Starkz vs. Robyn Renegade


Abadon vs. Viva Van


Red Velvet vs. Sandra Moone


Eight women remain in the first round of the ROH Women's World Television Championship Tournament, and it is quite the eclectic mix of competitors who remain! Five of them are quite familiar to the Ring of Honor fanbase, women who have been grinding it out in ROH (as well as AEW), and have set their sights on making history as the first ROH Women's World TV Champion. Billie Starkz has been set on this path by Athena, Abadon has come to ROH to claim championship success, Red Velvet has been hunting a title since returning from injury just as Taya Valkyrie has since she debuted in AEW, and Robyn Renegade wants to disrupt the entire tournament by knocking Starkz out in the first round. 

As for the other three women, Sussy Love is making her ROH debut on Thursday night and at just 30 years old, she already has 15 years of experience under her belt working in Mexico. Viva Van has six years of experience under her belt, has scored nearly a dozen championships during that time, and actually challenged Mercedes Martinez for the ROH Women's World Championship back on the 5/31/22 edition of DARK. She also stepped into the ring with Skye Blue during HONOR CLUB #16, and now returns to ROH attempting to make history as the 1st ROH Women's TV Champ, a situation that is also the case for Sandra Moone. Moone, herself a veteran of seven years, has been putting in hard fought bouts at West Coast Pro, and made her lone ROH appearance last year on the Jay Briscoe Tribute & Celebration of Life event.

Which four of these women will move onto the Quarter-Finals of the tournament to meet Mercedes Martinez, Leyla Hirsch, Queen Aminata, and Diamante?


“The Fallen Goddess” Athena(c) vs. “The Native Beast” Nyla Rose

“The Fallen Goddess” Athena has been the face of Ring of Honor Wrestling since FINAL BATTLE 2022 when she defeated Mercedes Martinez to claim the ROH Women's World Championship as her own. In the 439 days since, Athena has successfully defended the title nineteen times across ROH, All Elite Wrestling, and even outside those confines for Prestige Wrestling out of Portland, OR. She's beaten Kiera Hogan on three occasions, Marina Shafir, Yuka Sakazaki, Miyu Yamashita twice, Skye Blue, Willow Nightingale two times, as well as her own minion Billie Starkz, just to name a few of her victims. 

As if those stats weren't testament enough to Athena's standing atop the whole of ROH, “The Fallen Goddess” is also 47-2 in ROH competition, and completely undefeated in singles bouts with 45 victories. It is a streak unmatched by anyone in the entirety of ROH's 22 year history, and now just one day before that 22nd anniversary of The Era of Honor Begins, Athena will put her title on the line once again, this time against the most imposing force she's faced to date: “The Native Beast” Nyla Rose! Rose, a former AEW Women's World Champion, is a deadly competitor by herself, but when it comes to Table Play, she may be the worst possible opponent Athena could face. Nyla is quick, she's powerful,  can come off the top with that devastating knee, and can Beast Bomb her opponent through the table with devastating force.

After all this time standing atop the ROH Women's Division, after all the opponents, and all the championship challengers, has “The Fallen Goddess” finally met a challenge she can't overcome? We will find out this Thursday night only on Honor Club!


-Four Corner Survival: AR Fox vs. Exodus Prime vs. Matt Sydal vs. Komander
