Ring of Honor underwent a hiatus last year before making a comeback with the Supercard of Honor pay-per-view event on April 1, 2022. For those not in the know, ROH is currently owned by AEW President Tony Khan.

ROH had a solid women’s division before the promotion decided to shut its doors. WWE superstar Roxanne Perez was the first-ever ROH Women’s Champion. Khan is planning to revive the women’s division.

Sean Sapp spoke from behind a paywall that Impact Wrestling’s Maria Kanellis had a “very good” conversation with the AEW head honcho regarding the ROH women’s division.


Tony Khan and Maria Kanellis had their talk. Grapsody’s Will Washington spoke to Tony Khan following the ROH Supercard scrum and noted that Maria had mentioned hoping to talk to Tony Khan about the women’s division booking. Khan said he was open to that conversation, and we’re told that it took place.

Maria tells Fightful that she and Tony Khan had a very good 30-45 minute conversation. She believes they’ll likely have another talk when ROH makes its re-debut, and specified that when she talks about helping out that division, she doesn’t speak as a talent, so she doesn’t think the nature of her IMPACT deal would be affected by that.

Maria specified to Fightful that she is happy in IMPACT, and loves how the creative has been so far, and has a few months remaining on her current deal. Maria will be at Women’s Wrestling Army July 8 & 9 in Chicago.

ROH will be holding Death Before Dishonor in Lowell, Massachusetts on July 23rd. The promotion has yet to reveal the lineup for the show. Keep reading Ringside News for more!
