Pre-Show Results

– Ian Riccaboni welcomes us to the pre-show alongside Colt Cabana and Deonna Purrazzo. We’re kicking things off with some Women of Honor Championship Tournament matches.

WOH Championship Tournament Match

Kimura came out with her friend/manager (?) Kagetsu, and the two got into all kinds of shenanigans throughout the match. Kagetsu blatantly got involved right in front of the referee, who did absolutely nothing about it, to the point where the commentary was wondering why she wasn’t ejected from the match. Sumie eventually hit a snap DDT out of nowhere to give herself some space, then followed up with another spinning DDT for a nearfall. She fired up with the fans behind her, but ran right into a shotgun dropkick from the STARDOM champion. Manager got on the apron and grabbed a hold of Sumie’s hair, but there was a bit of miscommunication and Kimura accidentally took out her own ally with a dropkick off the apron. She went out to check on her and Sumie came off the top rope, taking both ladies out with a diving crossbody to the floor! Back in the ring and Sumie hits a variation on the Cross Rhodes to pick up the three-count.

Winner: Sumie Sakai

– Mandy Rose came out and replaced Deonna at the commentary booth. It’s announced that we’ll see the semifinal round matches on the pre-show at ROH Supercard of Honor, and the final championship bout will take place on the main card.

WOH Championship Tournament Match

Brandi got a few shots in early and got a bit too cocky with her performance, not taking the vastly more experienced Tenille (formerly Emma) seriously. Brandi slapped her across the face and Tenille took her down to the mat, immediately taking completely control of the match. She hit some of her old WWE signatures including the diving crossbody in the corner and the crowd was fully in her corner. Brandi went down clutching her knee at one point, but of course it was just a ploy to distract the referee and poke her opponent in the eyes. She hit the Cross Rhodes, but only got two-and-a-half and threw a tantrum instead of going back to work. Tenille hit a scoop slam piledriver and the Spotlight (low running dropkick to the back of the head) to put this one away.

Winner: Tenille Dashwood
