ROH wrestler Veda Scott spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and was asked why it has taken the company so long to do more Women of Honor shows. “I don’t think it was necessarily a matter of it taking so long as a reflection of Ring of Honor itself,” Scott said. “I think it’s reflecting the way women’s wrestling has grown tremendously in the past few years. So, I think it’s a reflection of women’s wrestling in general, not necessarily how Ring of Honor has supported it or not supported women’s wrestling.
“It’s just a reflection of the fact that there’s so many talented female athletes out there right now and how hot women’s wrestling is. The time was right to dive head first and do a full-on women’s division. There’s been starts and stop before with that with Ring of Honor — women’s matches here and there — but this is a fully realized vision of a women’s division.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
Powell’s POV: Ring of Honor aired a Women of Honor edition of their weekly television show recently, and they are holding a Women of Honor event tonight in Baltimore. It’s encouraging to see ROH feature talent more frequently and I hope we will see additional Women of Honor specials.
