New Match Booked ROH Final Battle PPV

Ring of Honor is slated to hold their Final Battle pay-per-view event on December 14, 2018 in Manhattan, New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom. ROH issued the following:

Ring of Honor’s seminal event, Final Battle, emanates from Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday Dec. 14. Final Battle is ROH’s biggest card of the year and has been the site of some of ROH’s most memorable matches.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the results at Final Battle undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

At last year’s Final Battle, the huge announcement was made that a tournament would take place in 2018 to crown the inaugural Women of Honor Champion. One year later, the title will be defended at Final Battle in a Four Corner Survival Match, as Sumie Sakai puts her championship on the line against Madison Rayne, Karen Q and Kelly Klein.

FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL MATCH FOR WOH WORLD TITLE
WOH WORLD CHAMPION SUMIE SAKAI vs. MADISON RAYNE vs. KAREN Q vs. KELLY KLEIN

Klein defeated rival Jenny Rose in a qualifying match on the most recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” to claim the last remaining spot in the Four Corner Survival Match. Rayne and Karen Q previously had won qualifying matches, over Dr. Britt Baker and Kaitlin Diemond, respectively.

Sakai, who won the WOH Title tournament at Supercard of Honor in April and has reigned ever since, has proved to be a fighting champion. Her willingness to defend the title against anyone anywhere around the globe led to the championship being renamed the WOH World Title a few months ago.

The veteran billed from Jersey Shore, Japan will face arguably her toughest test yet when she takes on three formidable challengers at Final Battle.

Klein has been a dominant force in WOH for three years. The “Pretty Badass” went more than 2½ years without being pinned or forced to submit before Sakai pinned her in the finals of the tournament.

Rayne, a 13-year veteran who is no stranger to winning titles, has been as good as ever since making her WOH debut a year ago. She would love to cap what has been an amazing 2018 for her by leaving Final Battle as WOH World Champion.

Karen Q has been impressive since her WOH debut last year, when she made waves by handing Klein her first loss in WOH (by countout). She also has scored victories over Sakai (before Sakai won the title) and Deonna Purrazzo.

Will Sakai defy the odds and retain her title at Final Battle, or will a new champion be crowned?
