At Final Battle 2017 it was announced that Ring of Honor would take their “Women of Honor” division to the next level. The promotion will be holding a tournament to name the first ever Women of Honor Champion. This is a major step for not only the company but also for women wrestlers the world over. This will give women another company to ply their trade and get exposure.
With the WWE putting such a huge emphasis on women’s wrestling in the last few years and Impact always having a strong women’s division, this just adds to the work opportunities. The tournament will feature wrestlers not only featured in Women of Honor but also the Japanese promotion Stardom. The campaign for the championship kicks off in January 2018.
