Tony Khan, ROH owner and AEW President, has announced that the Supercard of Honor go-home edition of ROH TV for Thursday will be taped on Wednesday at the AEW Dynamite in St. Louis.
On Thursday’s episode, ROH Women’s World Champion Athena will defend her title against Emi Sakura. The winner of that match will then defend on Friday at Supercard of Honor. Khan did not name the Supercard of Honor challenger, but Athena had previously challenged Yuka Sakazaki to a title match at the pay-per-view.
Tonight’s episode of AEW Dark: Elevation includes an angle between Athena and Sakura. In the episode, Athena will also face Tootie Lynn in a Proving Ground match as Lynn attempts to secure a future title match.
