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!

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

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

Published

Jeff Hardy

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.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More! (7/12/19)

New Involving The Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More!

News Here! The Latest On Extreme Rules, SummerSlam Changes, Alexa Missing RAW and More!

Original RAW Main Event Plans

This past Monday’s RAW featured the main even of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre taking on Roman Reigns and a partner of his opponents choosing. The mystery partner of Reigns was masked the entire match, and was eventually revealed to be Cedric Alexander. According to PWInsider, the decision to use McIntyre was not made until hours before the show. Original plans called for the company to use an extra or local indie wrestler. The report also notes that there will be storyline follow up for Cedric Alexander that will play out the next few weeks.

Jason’s Take

Some people didn’t care for the choice, but I think it makes sense with the changes that are occurring with the weekly shows. The company hasn’t really done a lot with Alexander since his main roster call up, so my hope is that pairing him with Reigns helps establish him on the RAW roster.

SummerSlam Changes Coming ?

Speaking of changes to the WWE, the Twitter account of WrestleVotes Tweeted that any plans involving the SummerSlam card are subject to change this week with the Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman officially starting in their new roles. WrestleVotes has been very accurate with rumors involving WWE in the past.

Jason’s Take

The company had to finish up story lines before letting Heyman and Bischoff loose, so changes to the SummerSlam plans make sense. RAW and SmackDown have shown some improvement the past couple of weeks, so I am excited to see what changes will continue to occur.

Reason For Alexa Bliss RAW Abscence

The rumor mill was buzzing this week with Alexa Bliss and her absence from RAW. Dave Meltzer noted on the latest addition of Wrestling Observer radio that the reason she missed RAW, and the reason Nikki Cross was added to the match at Extreme Rules is that Alexa is suffering from a bad sinus infection.

“Alexa Bliss has a real bad sinus infection. Originally, they were not going to do the handicap match. The handicap match was a late change and everything that happened on TV on Monday and Tuesday with no Alexa Bliss was because of her sinus infection and they rewrote that whole storyline.”

Jason’s Take

I though things seemed out of sorts on RAW with Nikki Cross winning the beat the clock challenge. I am going to assume the plan is for Bayley to win at Extreme Rules, with Nikki and Alexa planting the seeds for a potential feud.
