ROH News: Kelly Klein Officially Enters WOH World Women’s Title Match At Final Battle

Final Battle WOH
The final participant in the WOH World Women’s Title Match at Final Battle is official!

Coming up on December 14th, Ring Of Honor will make its way to the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City for Final Battle, which will be followed by the Final Battle Fallout television tapings the next night in Philadelphia.





While the card for Final Battle seems to primarily be rounded out at this time, one match that had yet to be finalized was the Four Corners Survival Match for the WOH World Women’s Championship as one spot remained open. While the champion Sumie Sakai, Madison Rayne and Karen Q waited to see who their last opponent was, the qualifying match between Kelly Klein and Jenny Rose has now aired with Klein picking up the win. Here’s the official announcement from ROH:

FIELD COMPLETE FOR WOH WORLD TITLE FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL MATCH AT FINAL BATTLE

Ring of Honor’s seminal event, Final Battle, emanates from Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday Dec. 14. Final Battle is ROH’s biggest card of the year and has been the site of some of ROH’s most memorable matches.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the results at Final Battle undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

At last year’s Final Battle, the huge announcement was made that a tournament would take place in 2018 to crown the inaugural Women of Honor Champion. One year later, the title will be defended at Final Battle in a Four Corner Survival Match, as Sumie Sakai puts her championship on the line against Madison Rayne, Karen Q and Kelly Klein.

Klein defeated rival Jenny Rose in a qualifying match on the most recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” to claim the last remaining spot in the Four Corner Survival Match. Rayne and Karen Q previously had won qualifying matches, over Dr. Britt Baker and Kaitlin Diemond, respectively.

Sakai, who won the WOH Title tournament at Supercard of Honor in April and has reigned ever since, has proved to be a fighting champion. Her willingness to defend the title against anyone anywhere around the globe led to the championship being renamed the WOH World Title a few months ago.

The veteran billed from Jersey Shore, Japan will face arguably her toughest test yet when she takes on three formidable challengers at Final Battle.

Klein has been a dominant force in WOH for three years. The “Pretty Badass” went more than 2½ years without being pinned or forced to submit before Sakai pinned her in the finals of the tournament.

Rayne, a 13-year veteran who is no stranger to winning titles, has been as good as ever since making her WOH debut a year ago. She would love to cap what has been an amazing 2018 for her by leaving Final Battle as WOH World Champion.

Karen Q has been impressive since her WOH debut last year, when she made waves by handing Klein her first loss in WOH (by countout). She also has scored victories over Sakai (before Sakai won the title) and Deonna Purrazzo.

Will Sakai defy the odds and retain her title at Final Battle, or will a new champion be crowned?

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More! (7/17/19)

News Involving: Mickie James, Finn Balor, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!

News Here! Mickie James Update, Jeff Hardy, RAW Ratings and More!

Latest On Jeff Hardy

In Monday’s shuffle I discussed the news on Jeff Hardy’s latest public intoxication arrest. Since then, more details have been released regarding the incident. TMZ is reporting that Hardy smelled of booze and was passed out in a public stairwell before being arrested.

Jason’s Take

Once again, Hardy’s struggles with addiction have been well documented in the past, so I am not going to comment on them. Here is hoping that he is able to get things in order and get his life on track.

RAW Ratings See An Increase

RAW continues to slowly climb out of the ratings hole, as this weeks ratings showed an increase in viewership. The hourly breakdown looks like this:

Hour 1 – 2.379 million viewers
Hour 2 – 2.503 million viewers
Hour 3 – 2.478 million viewers

Jason’s Take

This is good news for WWE, RAW, and USA, as RAW typically has had a hard time keeping viewers into the third hour. RAW was actually a very solid show last night, and one of the first RAW’s in a very long time that I watched from start to finish while it aired live. Slowly, but surely, WWE will do what they can to climb out of the hole.

Mickie James Undergoes ACL Surgery

Earlier today, WWE star Mickie James went under the knife to repair her injured ACL. The injury looks to keep her out of the ring into next year. Her husband, Nick Aldis, took to Twitter to update fans on the successful surgery.

Jason’s Take

Mickie James is still a very talented wrestler who adds depth to the women’s division. There is still a place for her on the roster, and one can assume that the WWE will want to keep her when she fully recovers.

Finn Balor Taking Time Off?

Finn Balor lost the Intercontinental championship at Extreme Rules, and the loss had many scratching their heads. However, it appears there is reasoning behind it according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, as Balor has requested time off from WWE to recharge. Though he requested time off, it appears that it will not be granted until after the upcoming SummerSlam pay per view.

Jason’s Take

It will be interesting to see how Balor will be written off of TV. One could assume a SummerSlam match with Bray Wyatt will lead to his exit. Perhaps on his return, he could join his friends in The Club ?

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jeff Hardy, RAW Reunion, Paul Heyman and More! (7/15/19)

News here! Jeff Hardy, RAW Reunion, Paul Heyman and More!

Jeff Hardy Arrested

According to various news outlets this weekend, WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested for public intoxication Saturday in South Carolina.Police said they received a report of an intoxicated person in Myrtle Beach about 11 a.m. Shortly after, authorities arrested Hardy without incident and charged him with public intoxication.Hardy posted a $153 bond and was released the same day.In a statement, WWE said, “Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions.”

Jason’s Take

Jeff Hardy’s battles with substance abuse over the years have been well documented. After period of staying off the radar, Hardy has been in court twice over the past year for alcohol related issues. Here is hoping that Hardy can get things under control.

Huge RAW Planned For Next Week

During Sunday nights Extreme Rules pay per view, WWE aired a commercial for RAW Reunion that will take place on July 22nd. Some of the big names advertised include Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Ric Flair.

Jason’s Take

This seems like a reach for a quick ratings grab, but it is always cool to see the legends return. Potentially we could see some involvement from some of the legends for SummerSlam storylines ?

Paul Heyman Appears At EVOLVE Show

For those of you who didn’t catch the EVOLVE 10th Anniversary show on the WWE Network Saturday night, you missed out on a hell of a show. You also missed out on an appearance from none other than Paul Heyman. Most wrestling fans know that Heyman mentored EVOLVE founder Gabe Sapolosky back in ECW.

Jason’s Take

Those of you have followed my daily news shuffles, and the random In This Corner articles I put together, know that I rarely follow the indie wrestling scene. However, I took in both the EVOLVE show and AEW Fight For The Fallen. I was extremely impressed with the talent in EVOLVE, and my hopes are that WWE continues to broadcast their shows on the WWE Network.

Enzo and Cass Done With ROH ?

During April’s G1 Supercard Show at Madison Square Garden, fans were shocked to see Enzo and Cass jump the guard rail and started attacking ROH stars. Many felt initially that this may have been a shoot, but it appeared to be a work to lead to a potential appearance in ROH for the two. However, according to Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, it appears the relationship between the former WWE stars and ROH is over before it truly began. According to Meltzer, NJPW was unhappy as they were not notified before hand of their appearance, and the company has cut their loses with the two.

Jason’s Take

It’s Enzo and Cass. I mean, with what little I follow ROH, I can’t really see the two of them fitting with the company long term. However, if you want a team to be a legit heel right out of the chute, you could have that with those two.
