10 Wrestlers Who Will Succeed In Tony Khan's ROH

As ROH continues to rebuild, Mercedes Martinez has positioned herself as a key player in the company’s women’s division.

After overcoming Willow Nightingale, ‘The Brass City OG’ became the interim ROH Women’s World Championship at the Supercard of Honor pay-per-view.

Martinez is now set to take on lineal champion Deonna Purrazzo in a title unification match in the near future in order to find out once and for all who the true ROH Women’s World Champion is.

Purrazzo, who is also the AAA Reina de Reinas Champion, was unable to compete at the ROH event because of obligations with Impact, where she is currently signed.

‘The Virtuosa’ previously defeated Rok-C in an ‘All or Nothing’ match on the 10 January 2022 episode of Impact, defending her AAA Reina de Reinas title while winning the ROH Women’s World Championship in the process.

Martinez and Purrazzo hold victories over one another in previous encounters, though current momentum leaves Martinez in an excellent position to come away from the upcoming bout with the undisputed title around her waist.
