Nicole Savoy is the latest addition to Ring of Honor’s 16-woman tournament to crown the inaugural ROH Women’s World Champion.
She will join the likes of Sumie Sakai, Kellyanne, and Angelina Love for a chance to become the company’s first women’s world champion.
Savoy was the longest-reigning SHIMMER Champion, holding the title for a record 721 days. She dropped it last summer to Kimber Lee at SHIMMER Volume 116.
According to ROH:
Savoy is one of 16 competitors in the tournament to crown a new women’s champion in ROH. The tournament kicks off with eight first-round matches at Quest For Gold in Philadelphia on April 24.
Savoy, a nine-year veteran who held the Shimmer Title for 721 days from 2017-2019, has made a strong impression in her short time with ROH. In her debut match at Final Battle Fallout in December, she defeated former Women of Honor World Champion Sumie Sakai.
Aptly nicknamed “The Queen of Suplexes,” Savoy has a background in Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu. When she was Shimmer Champion, Savoy successfully defended the title against the likes of Mercedes Martinez, Deonna Purrazzo, Britt Baker, Cheerleader Melissa, LuFisto, and Kimber Lee, among others.
With her in-ring ability and big-match experience, Savoy figures to be a tough out in the tournament.
Nicole Savoy made her ROH debut in December in a match against Sumie Sakai at Final Battle Fallout. Tomorrow night, she will face Angelina Love Bound by Glory.
The ROH Women’s World Championship Tournament will start at Quest For Gold on Apr. 24 in Philadelphia, PA at the 2300 Arena.
