Sara Del Rey Returns to ROH

The Queen of Wrestling, Sara Del Rey, has returned to Ring of Honor.

Del Rey will be part of this weekend’s tapings for ROH’s syndicated television show.

Del Rey was phased out of ROH last year following the company’s purchase by Sinclair Broadcasting. At the time, the team she was aligned with, the Kings of Wrestling — Claudio Castagnoli (now Antonio Cesaro on SmackDown) and Chris Hero (now Kassius Ohno in FCW) — left ROH to join WWE.

Spoilers for Del Rey’s return below:

Del Rey returned to confront self-professed First Lady of ROH, Maria Kanellis, after the latter slapped Adam Cole at the end of a tag team match which saw Cole and Eddie Edwards defeat Kanellis’ boyfriend, Mike Bennett and Brutal Bob Evans.

    Del Rey returning as a face? oh my imagine a match between Maria and Del Rey. given that Maria’s gotten actual training now she might not do so bad

    • Sherri Martel Fan

      Del Rey would destroy Maria lol..

      • 2kute4tv

        Maria could be a good heel I think……. I think del ray could get her over as a heel

  • xxQOXxx

    I really hope that when she’s done with Maria they have a feud with Mia Yim when she’s finished her tours of Japan.

  • mscandy

    This should be interesting.. although why is Mia always left out? I think all 3 women should be involved, but congrats to Sara on her return. :)

    • xxQOXxx

      She’s wrestling a lot in Japan at the moment and is booked for tours, so there’s no point putting her in a feud until she’s finished them and commit to spending a period of time in America.

      • mscandy

        Although she is busy in Japan, she tweeted that she seemed quite interested in a fued with Maria…so was just wondering.

  • Matthew

    Maria and Del Rey together? :D

  • LadyGoDiva

    This sounds awesome hope this leads to roh forming a women’s division?

  • redsandman99

    Maria and Del Rey together….this should be mighty interesting.

  • Essex Boy

    Maria….. Training or not, I won’t buy her offence against Del Ray in any form.

    • Sherri Martel Fan

      Totally agree! I could never believe it lol..

  • Rhawk

    Ah hah, two women fueding with each other in Ring Of Honor. Maybe those rumours of a Womans Division at the end of the year are starting up may come true, I mean it is nearly July now…
    Either way, great to see Death Ray back in ROH. Might actually tune myself into the shows online more now.

  • Nostalgia

    Maria’s in trouble D:

  • Ryan

    Lets go sexy Maria!!!
    Run if you have to! haha

  • bxradimus

    Awesome! I’m so glad to see her return to ROH! Hopefully they start up a women’s division. Maybe even create an ROH Women’s title in the future.

    • Ryan

      Would be nice to see a woman’s division…But I like watching ROH I have to catch it at the ROH main website..I can honestly say with the Knockouts and WWE Divas…a womens division on ROH really isnt necessary. At least my opinion.
      I would actually support this more if girls like Roxxi Hamada LuFisto and a few others were to join aside from Sara n Maria…otherwise naa.. -_-

      • Indymark75

        ROH only has a hour of tv a week, so it wouldn’t make sense to have a women’s division with that in mind. Although indy level women’s wrestling has a different style than the majors, which is closer to that of the men.

      • cutymania

        I disagree with that. There’s always an alternative to WWE/TNA, having a division of girls who haven’t wrestled in either tv company, is a start. Look at the three KO’s that are involved in the top storylines right now…Brooke, Mickie, Gail – all former is that an alternative to WWE?

        • Ryan

          How its it an alternative to WWE? cause these former divas are now KNOCKOUTS and kick ass! Totally different than DIvas with no offense to the divas like Layla AJ and many others

        • Rhawk

          @Ryan – I believe she meants an alternative as in the same faces from WWE somewhere else, not in hers of them having better matches, just being the same people.

        • cutymania

          @RHAWK – that’s exactly what I meant.

          Most of the knockouts are from WWE or were associated with WWE, so ROH having a womens division that is full of girls who have never wrestled on TV (aside from Maria), is more of an alternative product.

  • Alexis18

    I’m glad the Queen is returning to ROH. I can’t wait to see how this feud between Maria and SDR will turn out. Hopefully, SDR can bring out the best in Maria and the two will put on some great matches.

    • Indymark75

      I couldn’t see Maria putting up a believable offense on SDR.

    Maria, Advice:

    In the words of Camilla’s Mother:

    “Get her on that wall and start windmilling that Bitch.
    Put your tennis shoes on!
    Put your rings on your fingers!”

  • redsandman99

    I don’t believe it’s going to be a real competitive feud in terms of matches. The way this feud would work best is if Maria dodges Sara and plays the infuriating heel, which gives the payoff being Sara just kicking her ass.
