One week from Friday is ROH's Supercard of Honor. The show's card is still coming together, which is par for the course for ROH (and at times, AEW).

On episode 57, "Big Shotty" Lee Johnson requested promo time. He told Renee Paquette that he is "not here to take part, I am here to take over. And now, let me add someting else to it. I am here to take titles." He challeneged the winner of the main event between ROH Television Champion Kyle Fletcher and Blake Christian.

Fletcher retained his title and will face Johnson at Supercard. Johnson is 7-1 in 2024. While he's been quietly climbing the ranks, this match is a surprise. The match that fans thought we were getting was Fletcher vs. Ethan Page. Several weeks ago, Page said that he wanted a shot at the TV title. At the time, Fletcher was off tv due to visa issues. Page hasn't been on Honor Club since episode 52 (Feb. 10).

Another match for next Friday is a stacked women's match. There will be a STARDOM Women's Trios match. Mina Shirakawa, Mei Seira, and Maika will take on the team of AZM, Tam Nakano, and Saya Kamitani. Shirakawa made her ROH debut on episode 56 where she defeated Anna Jay.

A couple weeks ago, Tony Khan posted a photo with STARDOM's president, Taro Okada. The relationship is off to a strong start.

On last week's episode, Bilie Starkz and Queen Aminata advanced to the finals of the ROH Women's Television Championship tournament. The inaugural champion will be crowned at Supercard.

Eddkie Kingston will defend his ROH World Championship against Mark Briscoe. Kingston has not appeared on Honor Club in person this year. He's appeared via pre-taped promos twice.

ATHENA is defending the Women's Championship against Hikaru Shida. As of episode 57, "The Fallen Goddess" has been champion for 475 days. She is sitting at 48 consecutive wins in ROH-sanctioned matches.

Assuming she wrestles on episode 58 of Honor Club, she will be 49-0 heading into Supercard. While the former three-time AEW Women's Champion is more than a formidable challenger, I don't see ATHENA's record ending at 49-1.

As of now, there are only five matches on the main card and none for Zero Hour. Dalton Castle vs. Johnny TV has been the second biggest story in ROH. Cole Karter and Griff Garrison have had an ongoing feud against Spanish Announce Project (Angelico and Serpentico). Those two matches are likely to be added to the card.

Will the ROH tag team titles and the Six-Man titles be defended? The Undisputed Kingdom haven't been on Honor Club since January. They just lost in the AEW Tag Team title tournament on this week's Dynamite (granted they were likely a last minute replacement for the Workhorsemen. An injury to Anthony Henry kept them from competing).

Bullet Club Gold won the Six-Man titles from The Mogul Embassy on an episode of Dynamite. They have never appeared on Honor Club. Maybe now that they finally dispersed Bang Bang Scissor Gang, they'll feel like defending their titles.

Good luck finding a Six-Man team. Top Flight and Action Andretti are the trio getting the most matches in ROH, but Top Flight is currently in the AEW tag team tournament. They'll most likely face a random six-man like Gringo Loco, Jack Cartwheel, and Slim J.

There's one week left to round out the card. Check back next week and we'll see how many matches I predicted get added.
