ROH’s August 30th, 2017 edition of Women Of Honor shows ‘The Exotic Goddess’ Mandy Leon teaming with Jenny Rose. They face the team of Jersery Shore Japan’s Sumie Sakai and a familiar face to some. Making her Ring Of Honor in-ring debut, Brandi Rhodes, or simply just, Brandi. She is even wearing black with yellow polka dots attire in respect to her hubby’s great father.
The match itself was pretty decent. While you can clearly see how new Brandi is compared to the other women, she handled herself well. Being in a tag team match in her debut was probably the best thing for her at this point. And at least she’s attempting the moves she is doing, she deserves that much credit at least. Give her time, she’ll get better so long as she puts in the effort.
Sumie was very quick in her move arsenal and hard-hitting at times. But Jenny and Mandy who both displayed nice teamwork of their own with some appeal moves in their arsenals.
Things got better for Leon & Rose after a double team move by Brandi & Sakai backfired. Leon would hit the Unprettier on Brandi, seemingly ending the match. However Brandi kicked out, showing a last bit of fire, while Jenny and Sumie brawled on the outside. But Leon was too much in the end when she tapped out to the Havana Dreams (Standing Muta Lock).
Thoughts: Not much to say personally as this was just more of a talent exchange. It was also a way to introduce Brandi to the ROH viewers. In all honesty, I expected Brandi to win her debut match, considering she is the wife of the current ROH World Champion. But I was glad to see relationship statuses aren’t reflected for everyone.
It was more shocking to see Brandi take the losing fall. But even still, it’ll be cool to see Brandi go through an underdog story if that’s how this will go.
Now I’m sure we will get more story development with the other women who are featured with Ring Of Honor. Names like Deonna Purrazzo, Kelly Klien and Karen Q. Maybe we’ll see some of the other women from the ROH Dojo or women from the STARDOM promotion.
Either way, this is the place to check up on all your Women Of Honor Write-Ups.
Also as this was my first ever write-up (I’m Rhys by the way), tell me how I did. Anything to improve on would be great! I’ll be covering ROH reviews and others feature in my part-time schedule. It’s great to be part of the Diva-Dirt family!
