Ring of Honor is set to launch Women’s Division Wednesday on their YouTube page. The company has been attempting to revive its women’s division since before the pandemic hit last year. Prior to pausing their production last year, there was both a women’s tournament and a new title planned. Now that ROH has started back up they plan to continue with that same plan. They have already reported that a tournament will be coming this summer.
In the meantime, starting next Wednesday, April 28, there will be a women’s match weekly. The full announcement on their website reads as follows:
“ROH Board of Directors member Maria Kanellis-Bennett announced at the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view last month that there will be a tournament this summer to crown an ROH Women’s World Champion. However, fans won’t have to wait that long to see the return of the women’s division.
Beginning April 28, ROH will present Women’s Division Wednesday on ROH’s YouTube channel. There will be a new women’s match every Wednesday at 7 p.m. Eastern featuring newcomers as well as ROH veterans.
No participants for the championship tournament have been announced, so all of the competitors in Women’s Division Wednesday matches will be out to prove that they deserve to be part of the field.”
Although there haven’t been any participants named for the tournament or who will be appearing weekly on the company’s YouTube channel, Angelina Love has been giving the opportunity to earn a bye in the tournament. At the recent anniversary show, Kanellis-Bennett said that Love will be facing backstage interviewer Quinn McKay. If Love beats McKay in this match then she earns a bye from the first round of the tournament.
