ROH has named its top 5 Women of Honor stars for 2017, and they are as follows:
5. Jenny Rose
4. Sumie Sakai
3. Mandy Leon
2. Deonna Purrazzo
1. Kelly Klein
The ROH website noted the following about Klein taking the top spot”
Known as “The Gatekeeper” and “Pretty Badass,” Klein has been dominant since her WOH debut in 2015. With an impressive combination of physicality, mat wrestling and submission mastery, Klein has never been pinned or forced to submit in WOH. Her aptly named “End of the Match” guillotine choke is the most feared maneuver in women’s wrestling. In 2017, Klein added Deonna Purrazzo, Jenny Rose, Brandi Rhodes and Stella Grey, among others, to her list of victims, and in Japan, she and Bea Priestley won the Goddess of Stardom Tag League tournament.
