ROH Honor Reigns Supreme 2019: 3 best matches from the show
Honor Reigns Supreme was held on January 13, 2019, at the Cabarrus Arena & Events Center in Concord, North Carolina. In the first ROH live show of the year, we saw very interesting matches and the start of many feuds that could grow on the way to G1 Supercard in April, the historic pay per view that will be held by ROH and NJPW a day before WrestleMania 35 at Madison Square Garden.
On this occasion, two of the company's five titles were in dispute. Kelly Klein successfully defended the ROH Women of Honor World Championship after defeating Jenny Rose in a Street Fight match. We also saw the eleventh successful defense of Jay Lethal as ROH World Champion after defeating former world champion Dalton Castle.
But undoubtedly the most important thing was the debut of Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, Brody King & PCO) in a ROH live show. 'The Villain' has formed a new faction after the departure of his former colleagues from the Bullet Club to a new adventure called All Elite Wrestling. The goal of the British talent is to get the ROH World Championship this year.
In a show of this magnitude, almost all the matches were up to the circumstances, but only a few will be remembered over the months. Here are the three best matches of Honor Reigns Supreme 2019.
#3 Kelly Klein vs. Jenny Rose
In the eighth match of the night, we saw the victory of Kelly Klein on Jenny Rose in a Street Fight match. 'The Gatekeeper' managed to retain the ROH Women of Honor World Championship in an extreme match that lasted 12 minutes and 33 seconds.
The booking of the women's division of ROH in 2018 had been of very poor quality and the matches had little significance. However, this match could be the beginning of a new era in Women of Honor. Both wrestlers showed their most extreme side and offered an exciting match to all the spectators.
The match had two extremely shocking moments. The first was when Kelly Klein, with Jenny Rose climbing on her back, threw herself towards a table at ringside. The second was a Superplex by Rose that ended with Klein's spectacular fall on many chairs.
Finally, Klein got the victory after applying the K-Power on Rose, who after this fall on chairs received the pin. Without a doubt, it was one of the best matches in the history of Women of Honor.
