Fans are excited about the ROH Women’s TV Championship and these are three strong options to hold the title first.
ATHENA has carried the spotlight of women’s wrestling in North America throughout 2023. Many consider her the top performer in the division for her work in Ring of Honor. And while there are some interesting points to raise, she’s done the work while Tony Khan hasn’t given her the shine. He has the opportunity to make some corrections with the introduction of the ROH Women’s TV Championship. Looking at that new and necessary title, here are three women who should be in consideration for holding that title first.
Leyla Hirsch has long been a fan favorite. She’s been booked well since her return from injury, seen as one of the bigger names in the ROH women’s division. It would be interesting to see her booked as an underdog to pick up the title, perhaps taking on a bit of a shooter-style role along the way. Whether it’s as a heel or a babyface, fans would get behind Hirsch making a run at the new championship.
The fans are ready to see Trish Adora get the shine in Ring of Honor that she experienced throughout the independent scene. The DC native held the GCW Women’s Championship for 762 days, then followed that up with a 1,338-day run as the Pan-Afrikan World Diaspora Wrestling World Champion. Adora has a championship pedigree and it is time to see that shine in both AEW and ROH.
While she is getting time in front of the camera on both shows, she’s being used as enhancement talent more often than not. Adora is much more capable than that and slotting her in as the ROH Women’s Television Champion would go a long way in proving that point.
Kiera Hogan is in a good position in Ring of Honor. Where she doesn’t get wins on AEW television, she is booked as a stronger name in ROH. She has an 8-3 record in the promotion and while that doesn’t seem like a big deal, she’s picked up solid wins over the likes of Lady Frost, Allysin Kay, and the Renegade sisters. Her time as Athena’s main foil for the ROH Women’s World Championship was a huge moment for her, leading to that excellent Chicago Street Fight. Hogan was ready to step into her own since leaving IMPACT and building her up as the ROH Women’s TV Champion would be a step in the right direction.
