Rok-C is still on cloud nine after becoming the new and youngest ROH Women’s World Champion after a 15-person tournament resulted in her defeating Miranda Alize in the finals. The 19yo Prodigy is now ready to take the world by storm and be at the forefront of the ROH women’s division.
Over this past weekend, Rok-C successfully defended her ROH Women’s Title in her first match with the title on the line since her win. She defeated Killer Kelly. The match took place for the New Texas Pro Wrestling promotion as she is the women’s champion for them as well.
Killer Kelly gave her respect to Rok-C in the Twitter post below stating that she can’t wait to see what the future holds for her. She then requests one more match to which Rok-C responded with 10 more. Their match has not been uploaded onto the New Texas Pro Wrestling YouTube channel at this time, but you can check out other Rok-C matches there.
ROH Board of Directors Maria Kanellis Bennett recently spoke on Rok-C being the best first champion for the rejuvinated division while speaking with Battleground Podcast.
“Last year, there was supposed to be a tournament, and that didn’t happen. So there were a lot of women that were in the tournament that had been suggested to participate in it last year. So there was so much anticipation for the women that were involved in it. I really feel as if, when it was down to the final two, everybody was in agreement that those were the right final two and it was amazing, because, along the way, so many people had their predictions, you know, it’s gonna be this person, it’s gonna be that person. But at the end of the day, I think that match was the best match of the night and I think that Rok-C is the best champion for the job.
She’s mature beyond her years. I think that’s the one thing that people are really going to start to see, especially as she goes out and does interviews, is she’s got a really good head on her shoulders. I met her mother, I met her father, and they are wonderful individuals and it was so funny talking to her mom, because her mom told me, ‘Yeah, she may be a superstar when she’s out there in the world. But when she’s home, she’s just Rock. She’s just my daughter and I think that’s great. I mean, that’s how my parents always were with me. I started at 22 and I think having that grounding force is really important in a young champion.” [h/t – Fightful]
