Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing that Kelly Klein will defend the WOH championship against Tasha Steelz at the August 9th Summer Supercard from Toronto, Canada. Details, including an updated match card, are below.
When Tasha Steelz put the entire Women of Honor locker room on notice last month, it was hard to take her too seriously. After all, she had only had a handful of matches in WOH over the past two years.
The “Boricua Badass” quickly made good on her bold pronouncement, however. As seen on this past weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” Steelz won a Four Corner Survival Match to earn a title shot against WOH World Champion Kelly Klein at Summer Supercard on Aug. 9 in Toronto.
In the No. 1 Contender’s Match, Steelz prevailed over six-time world champion Angelina Love, perennial contender Jenny Rose and up-and-coming competitor Stella Grey. After the match, when powerhouse newcomer Maria Manic entered the ring, Steelz showed no fear and stepped right up to her.
Steelz proved that she is both dangerous and fearless. In Klein, however, Steelz will be facing a champion who thrives on competition.
Klein, the only two-time WOH World Champion, recently surpassed the 100-day mark as the current titleholder. She has made it clear that she will defend her title anytime, anywhere against anyone.
Will Klein thwart the hungry challenger? Or will Steelz pull off the upset and leave with the gold? Join us live in person or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
Summer Supercard will feature top wrestlers from ROH, NJPW, CMLL and the NWA competing for championships and in dream matches. Don’t miss your opportunity to see the hottest show of the summer!
