Red Velvet vs. “Legit” Leyla Hirsch


Red Velvet and Leyla Hirsch are no strangers to one another, in fact theirs is a relationship that dates back a little over two years to an actual friendship that disintegrated into rivalry. From January to March of 2022, the two athletes engaged in a trio of matches beginning with a submission victory for Hirsch on the 1/26/22 edition of DYNAMITE, followed by a Red Velvet win on the 3/18 RAMPAGE, and ultimately won by Leyla Hirsch on the 3/23 episode of DYNAMITE thanks to a little assist from a piece of steel. Hirsch would unfortunately end up on the injured list just a few weeks later, suffering the injury that kept her out of action for fourteen months, effectively putting an end to the issues between her and Red Velvet, that is until now when both are in the hunt to be the first ROH Women's TV Champion.

Both are in a very different place in their careers than where they were in 2022, not just the difference between AEW and ROH, but in terms of how they are handling their business. Hirsch has seemingly found a kindred spirit in Rachael Ellering after both nearly fell into the Maria trap last year while Velvet has chosen to ride solo since her arrival in ROH at the beginning of 2024. Each has had varying degrees of success, and both went through tough fights to get into the Quarter-Final round of this tournament, Red Velvet overcoming the debuting Sandra Moone while Hirsch inadvertently hurt Ellering en route to that victory over her closest friend. 

This Thursday night, nearly two years since their last match, Red Velvet and Leyla Hirsch will rekindle their rivalry as each tries to advance to the tournament Semi-Finals! Has time healed those old wounds, allowing this to be the competitive wrestling contest it could be, or are they still quite raw, potentially turning this into a bitter fight?
