Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing a women’s division matchup between The Allure’s Angelina Love, and former longest reigning WOH champion Sumkie Sakai, at the August 24th Atlanta event entitled Saturday Night At Center Stage. Details are below.
The Allure has done a lot of smack-talking and sneak-attacking since storming onto the scene at G1Supercard several months ago. What they haven’t done a lot of is wrestling. That changes at Saturday Night at Center Stage in Atlanta on Aug. 24.
Angelina Love, billed as “the badass” of The Allure, will compete in her first one-on-one Women of Honor match on that night, and her opponent is certainly no pushover: the six-time former world champion will square off with former WOH World Champion Sumie Sakai.
Love has made it clear that her goal is to become WOH World Champion. She holds a pinfall victory over champion Kelly Klein, having beaten her in a six-woman tag match at the Best in the World pay-per-view in June. However, Love could be in for a rude awakening if she looks past Sakai.
Sakai was the first and is still the longest-reigning WOH World Champion. She’s defeated some of the top stars in the sport, including Klein, former Women of Stardom Champion Kagetsu and Tenille Dashwood. And she has even more years of in-ring experience than the veteran Love.
Will Love back up her boasts when she faces Sakai? Or will Sakai derail Love’s quest to become champion? Join us live in Atlanta or streaming on HonorClub to find out!
