ROH Board of Directors member Maria Kanellis Bennett took to the company’s YouTube channel to hand out two more tickets to gold. ROH is just about to announce the brackets of the Quest for Gold Women’s Title Tournament, which we finally now know is set to kick off in three weeks. The brackets will be revealed this Sunday at Best in the World.
The two women who just received their tickets are Holidead and Marti Belle. Both names are popular on the indie scene and have appeared with major promotions. Holidead was recently seen on AEW Dark in a match against Nyla Rose. She has worked for many promotions including ROH and is a former SHINE Tag Team Champion with Thunder Rosa.
Belle has also worked with many promotions and is most known for time with IMPACT Wrestling as a member of the Dollhouse with Taryn Terrell and Jade (Mia Yim). She participated in WWE’s Mae Young Classic and she is a two-time SHINE Tag Team Champion with Jayme Jameson. Other than with SHINE she was recently with NWA until November.
With the addition of these two competitors, they join the list for the tournament as follows:
- Angelina Love (first round bye)
- Allysin Kay
- Trish Adora
- Miranda Alize
- Mandy Leon
- Nicole Savoy
- Max the Impaler
- Alex Gracia
- Sumie Sakai
- Marti Belle
Vita VonStarr was originally scheduled to be in the tournament but the stipulation was she would no longer interfere in the men’s matches. She could not keep to that promise and Maria removed her from the tournament. Allie Recks was offered a ticket to gold but was unable to accept it at this time due to injury to her knee.
With this list, there is one spot left. It was recently announced that Quinn McKay will receive another shot at gold. She will be facing Mandy Leon in under two weeks to see if she can earn her spot.
The winner of the Quest For Gold Tournament will become the new ROH Women’s World Champion with a new lineage. The prior title was deactivated in 2020 after former champion Kelly Klein‘s contract was not renewed.
Check back in with Diva Dirt to see how the brackets will shape up and follow along for the rest of the summer as we report on the tournament leading to a new champion!
