WOMEN OF HONOR CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT FIRST ROUND MATCH
 
BRANDI RHODES vs. KAREN Q.
 
Karen Q. shocked the world when she defeated the undefeated “Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein in her debut match in April 2017. Karen went on to craft an undefeated streak of her own, winning the main even of 2017’s Women of Honor television special against Kelly and “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo before rattling off win after win.
 
Karen’s instant success has led her down a path few expected. Karen accused former best friend and training partner Deonna of being jealous of her success and began verbally and physically attacking Deonna. Despite Deonna defeating Karen in a violent No DQ match at Survival of the Fittest that was a direct consequence of Karen’s actions, Karen continues to disrespect others.
 
Most recently, that was fellow Women of Honor rookie, Brandi Rhodes.
 
Despite the cache of the Rhodes’ name and the success of outside ventures like being featured on E! Network’s WAGS Atlanta, Brandi is embarking on a career all on her own. Choosing to start from the bottom like any other competitor would when entering Women of Honor, Brandi fought valiantly against stars like Kelly but ultimately would come up short. In a qualifying match for the Women of Honor Championship Tournament, Brandi picked up her first win against Stella Grey.
 
And it was during this match that special guest commentator Karen Q. disrespected Brandi on commentary and mockingly cheered her victory. With Brandi wanting an opportunity to prove herself, she petitioned the ROH Board of Directors for a bout against Karen. Not only will Brandi get her wish but she will get it in the Women of Honor Championship Tournament’s opening round!
 
Will Brandi get her revenge and the biggest win of her career or has Karen Q. played a masterful game of chess to get a talented-but-less-experienced wrestler in the first round of this history-making tournament? Join us to find out!
