ROH News: WOH Title Match Added To Saturday Night At Center Stage

ROH Saturday Night
Kelly Klein will defend her WOH Title at Ring Of Honor in Atlanta!

Tomorrow night, Ring Of Honor will be back in action for the first time in 2019 as they are off to Atlanta for Saturday Night At Center Stage, followed by Honor Reigns Supreme on Sunday.

Although the Saturday Night At Center Stage television tapings take place a day prior to Honor Reigns Supreme, there haven’t been as many matches revealed in advance as there have been for Sunday’s event. Yesterday we learned that there will be a Women Of Honor Triple Threat as Madison Rayne battles Sumie Sakai and Jenny Rose (more on that here) and now today, Ring Of Honor has announced another big WOH bout.

Now added to tomorrow night’s event is WOH World Champion Kelly Klein, as she defends her title against Rockelle Vaughn:

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Atlanta on Saturday, Jan. 12 for an international television taping at Center Stage. All the top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss, action-packed event.

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 happenings in Atlanta undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

The Women of Honor World Championship was one of the most hotly contested championships in ROH in 2018, with Sumie Sakai needing to defeat Tenille Dashwood and Kelly Klein in the same night to become the inaugural champion before defending it globally against the world’s best. “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein ultimately ended her reign in dominant fashion by defeating Karen Q., Madison Rayne, and Champion Sumie at Final Battle.

With Kelly declaring every match against her a Championship match, competitors are lining up for the opportunity to get in the ring with the Champ. And the title will be on the line in Atlanta!

WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPION “THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. “WILD THING” ROCKELLE VAUGHN

Kelly Klein puts her Women of Honor Championship on the line when she defends it against a woman making her Women of Honor debut, “Wild Thing” Rockelle Vaughn! Rockelle made her name on the Southern and Southwest independent circuits, most notably in Booker T.’s Reality of Wrestling before earning her stripes in promotions like SHINE.

Under normal circumstances, a match signed like this between the Champion and a top prospect, even a blue chipper like Rockelle, would be a non-title affair, but “The Gatekeeper” has turned the circumstances on their head, making every match a Championship match from here on out.

Will lightning strike and will we see Rockelle pull off the ultimate upset or will Kelly continue her path of dominance? Join us to find out!

Flaming Pearl Oracle: Asian Pacific Announcements With Major Impact

Some big news on the Asian Pacific front, including AEW involvement, partnerships, and former WWE NXT star Zeda Zhang!

Zeda Zhang Asian Pacific

Shawn checks in with some big news on the Asian Pacific front!

The May 11th Belt and Road Championship Tournament 2 has been active over the past weekend.  The originator Middle Kingdom Wrestling (China) announced several participants for the upcoming event being hosted by Nepal Ring Wrestling Association (NRWA).

The Belt and Road Championship Tournament will not be an actual tournament format.  The design of the event will change to a more recognizable event with several matches.  The participating promotions decided to keep the event’s name as a tribute to the first 2018 initiative.

The main event has been announced to be a fatal four way style match for the championship.  The 2018 champion Black Mamba (MKW) will defend his belt against Ash Silva, Tommy Combat, and Nuwakote Tiger.  

In mixed tag team match, Michael Su and Zeda Zhang  vs Shine and Dilaasha.  Michael Su and Zeda Zhang (former WWE NXT superstar) will represent China’s Middle Kingdom Wrestling.

Middle Kingdom Wrestling (MKW) champion Big Sam will also defend his title against Nepal Ring Wrestling Association’s representative David.

In Other Asian Pacific News

On 20 March 19, Hong Kong Wrestling Federation tweeted an interesting proposal.  Hong Kong Wrestling promoter Ho Ho Lun may be attempting to partner with New Taiwan Wrestling (NTW), Grapple Max Singapore, Singapore Pro Wrestling, Middle Kingdom Wrestling, Philippine Wrestling Revolution, and Malaysia Pro Wrestling.

This type of partnership would have a major impact globally. Currently Middle Kingdom Wrestling works closely with the WWE’s NXT Asia program.

This alliance could restrict talent sharing, hinder cooperation events in the region, and exclude a small number of independent promotions.

Noticeably not on this list are Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling (Thailand) and  Oriental Wrestling Entertainment (China).

This next piece will be covered in more detail by AEW reporter Brandon King.  On 23 March, Middle Kingdom Wrestling inquired about booking an AEW women’s wrestling talent.  I have reached out to MKW officials with several questions.  They have requested a couple days for them to provide their responses.  I will provide more information probably Wednesday or Thursday.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Hart Foundation Are Hall Of Famers, Women Main Event WrestleMania, Kofi vs Bryan and More!

News here! Commentary today on the Hart Foundation as Hall Of Famers, Women Main Event WrestleMania, Kofi vs Bryan and More!

News here! Commentary today on the Hart Foundation as Hall Of Famers, Women Main Event WrestleMania, Kofi vs Bryan and More!

Hart Foundation To The Hall Of Fame

The Hart Foundation had been rumored to be a inducted into the hall of fame class this year for the past few months. Now, WWE has made it official.

Jason’s Take

This is well overdue as the Hart Foundation were one of the top five tag teams in WWE history. The only disappointment is the induction comes after the passing of Jim The Anvil Neidhart.

Women To Main Event WrestleMania

It had been speculated since November, and now it will finally happen. The women will main event WrestleMania for the first time in history. Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, and Charlotte Flair will face off in a triple threat match for the RAW women’s championship.

Jason’s Take

No surprise here, but I am glad the WWE has announced this in advance, rather than handling it like the Hell In A Cell match between Flair and Banks. Depending on who you ask, this match is ever over-hyped, or will be the greatest women’s match in company history. Regardless, the media is all over this announcement, so you can be all eyes will be on this main event. So hopefully fans will be able to last through the 8 hours of WrestleMania prior to this match.

Nikki Bella Announces Her Retirement

On this week’s episode of Total Bellas, Nikki Bella announced her retirement. “I feel like I’m too old for that travel,” Nikki said about the last WWE tour. “I really am ready to hang up the jersey. I can say it fully.”

WWE Spoils WrestleMania World Title Match

We know that Kofi Kingston will most likely take on Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania for the WWE World Championship. Apparently, a reddit user came across a sponsored ad from WWE’s Instagram account today that “spoiled” the match announcement.

Jason’s Take

No real surprise here, we all knew this match was going to happen. I can’t say that WWE’s Instagram “spoiled” this match announcement.

 

Becky Lynch Offered Multi-Year Deal

Becky Lynch has been “The Man” when it comes to the women’s division in 2019. With that in mind, Pro Wrestling Sheet has noted that WWE has offered Becky a multi-year deal to stay with WWE and it includes a significant pay raise. She is expected to sign the new deal soon.

Jason’s Take

Some love Becky, and some love to hate Becky. Regardless, the contract extension is deserved, as she has been part of the shot in the arm the women’s division has needed the last 10 years.
