With eight strong women aSlready named for Ring of Honor‘s upcoming Quest for the Gold tournament, in which Women of Honor will be rebooted and the Women of Honor Championship vacated and replaced by a new ROH Women’s World Championship, ROH’s women’s division already looks miles better in 2020 than it was in recent years. Over the past week, ROH has announced another seven women entering the field, bringing the total to 15 women.
One half of The Sea Stars with her sister, Delmi Exo, Ashley Vox has been a star in CHIKARA and the indie circuit for years now. She’s been getting more established as a singles star in the past year, particularly after appearing on NWA Powerrr over the past few months, as well as SHIMMER, RISE Wrestling, and Beyond Wrestling.
Fellow Allure member Angelina Love was announced in the last batch of reveals, and now Mandy Leon can count herself as entered into the tournament to crown the first ROH Women’s World Championship. The “Exotic Goddess” had a tour with Stardom in Japan in 2017 but has mostly remained with ROH the past few years.
Part of the surging Texas indie scene, Alex Gracia is one of the names to watch in 2020 after a hugely successful breakout in 2019. She’s competed across Texas with Booker T‘s Reality of Wrestling (ROW), Heavy Metal Wrestling, Sabotage Wrestling, Anarchy Championship Wrestling (ACW), and more, as well as competing with SHIMMER, Shine Wrestling, IMPACT Wrestling, and Mexico’s CMLL. A ROW Diamonds Champion, she had her first tour with Stardom last year in only her second year in the industry.
A star of the West Coast and student of Santino Bros. Wrestling, Heather Monroe is one of the regular stars with Bar Wrestling, as well as Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, Hoodslam, and many more, in both singles action and as part of the Killer Baes with Laura James. She’s also a former Sabotage Champion in Texas.
Baltimore’s Gia Scott is also a relative newcomer to the industry, debuting in early 2018. A regular with MCW Pro (formerly Maryland Championship Wrestling), she could be one to watch as one of the more unknowns in the Quest for Gold tournament (in comparison to the other names). Despite only two years in, she’s the reigning and 3x MCW Women’s Champion.
Houston’s Miranda Alize is yet another shining example of the talent – especially women – coming out of Texas in recent years. A student of Booker T’s, she debuted with ROW in 2014 and broke out in 2017 with SHIMMER and RISE Wrestling. She did a tour with Stardom in 2018 that polished her abilities and she’s now a breakout waiting to happen, adding the likes of Bar Wrestling, Mexico’s AAA and CMLL, IMPACT Wrestling, and All Elite Wrestling (she lost to Dr. Britt Baker on AEW Dark at the end of February) to her list of promotions fought in.
Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, Lindsay Snow is a student of former 2x Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal who got her start in 2016. A regular in the Florida indies with Full Throttle Pro wrestling and Coastal Championship Wrestling, she’s also worked with Shine Wrestling, RISE Wrestling, and Georgia’s Southern Honor Wrestling (SHW). She’s also competed for Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport last fall.
