Time for the second edition of Diva-Dirt’s new Women of Honor Write-Ups! (I can’t believe this is actually happening still). On this week’s Women of Honor, we have a match between two of the top stars of the division.
The former undefeated streak at over 500 days, ‘The Gatekeeper’ Kelly Klein, taking on ‘The Virtuosa’ Deonna Purrazzo. These two have had quite the rivalry over awhile now, with some run ins and such, one of which from Deonna led to the new Undefeated Streak in the WOH division, Karen Q, become the only woman to defeat Kelly Klein.
Tension was really high in this one, with the action even spilling to the outside at the very start. Deonna was definitely more aggressive here, more so than her spit-fire style usually is. Kelly was also hard-hitting as she always is, but Deonna seemed to have her number many times.
As the two fought more outside, Karen Q made an appearance, looking unamused by her former training partner Deonna. Karen soon jumped onto the apron and pulled Deonna onto the ropes while the ref wasn’t looking. This led to Kelly kicking Purrazzo down for the pinfall victory.
After Kelly smugly left, Karen attacked her former friend as she stood over her, telling her to stay out of her business. And that concludes this week’s Women of Honor!
Thoughts: Seems like this rivalry may have transferred into a new rivalry. As mentioned earlier, Karen Q was the first woman to defeat Kelly Klein in Ring of Honor. She did thus via count out when Deonna distracted Kelly from ringside, so which it wasn’t a strong win, she did win nonetheless. Also not long ago, Karen also defeated Kelly and Deonna in the triple threat Main Event of the more recent Women of Honor TV Special.
Karen has been showing some sort of resentment towards Deonna for awhile now, but the change of heart finally came here. It’ll definitely be interesting to see these two facing each other going forward, and where Klein will fit into this, or if she’ll even go on to fight over people or not.
The match itself did have it’s shaky spots, not gonna lie. But still, I loved the aggression shown by both women. You can feel they were looking to properly hurt each other in that match.
