She's a dental medicine student, so I guess she won't sign a full-time wrestling contract anytime soon.

Yup.

Not to say there hasn't been a healthy dialogue between her and WWE going back like two years or so. If/when she signs it will credited to her dating Adam Cole though. :roll:

As a general rule, WWE wants people to finish out educational commitments. Elsewhere WWE has a standing offer to Erica Wiebe after the 2020 Olympics.

Anyway, ROH should use Britt as much as they can when as how many Mandy Leon vs Jenny Rose matches could any sane person could possibly want? She's a talented wrestler with a big league look.

RAIN RETURNS TO WRESTLING TO COMPETE IN FLORIDA!

After seven years of competing against the top female wrestlers around the world, and nearly three years of retirement, Rain makes her return to the ring in Florida at ROH Elite and Sunshine State Excellence! One of the stars that laid the groundwork for Women of Honor returns to ROH to make her official debut in Women of Honor. Rain will compete on both Saturday, November 11 in Ft. Lauderdale and Sunday, November 12 in Lakeland!

Many fans will remember when Rain teamed with Lacey to form the Minnesota Homewrecking Crew and picked up victories against other ROH women’s pioneers like Daizee Haze, Allison Danger, Sara Del Rey, and MsChif in tag team action! In her time away from ROH, Rain became the first-ever Shine Champion, defeating Mia Yim in the finals of a tournament to crown the inaugural champion, and picked up a successful defense against Amazing Kong. Rain announced her retirement from wrestling following a loss to Ivelisse Vélez in 2014.

I remember Rain from years ago. I think she was also Bobby Roode's stalker in TNA if I recall. I don't remember if she's actually any good though. I like the idea though and hope she does well. If she does, bring her in on the regular, someone with more experience would be good and everyone loves a comeback story.

I always liked Rain in the ring, but as a character she always paled in comparison to Lacey.

Then again, who will not pale in comparison to Lacey?

It's great to see Rain back.
I'm glad she's recovered from the injuries she suffered in a car wreck briefly after her retirement.

I really hope that, if WOH grows, they do it as something different from ROH. I mean, let WOH have their own TV shows once a month, and let them have their PPVs. ROH has a lot of people and they always have problems with the time at PPVs. More matches aren't a good thing. Also, ROH is "The Best Wrestling on the Planet" and the level on WOH is pretty average, so it wouldn't fit.

I don't have a problem with a WOH division, but I would really want it as a different thing from ROH. Having a belt without shows outside WOH matches on YouTube and without a strong roster is a bad move, IMO.

I think they would lose money on WOH-only PPV's.

iPPV's, on the other hand, might be better.

Of course, I missed and "i". What I wanted to say was WOH special VOD shows. If the quality is lower and the roster is weaker, it wouldn't make sense to pretend people are going to pay the same money they pay to see BC and all the top stars, IMO.

The upcoming streaming service seems like a natural home for Women of Honor as well as Future of Honor. They're going to need content for it and with all the ad revenue drama going on over at Youtube, it seems like as good of a time as any to jump ship.

See, that's something I'm not sure about. Do you think people will pay 7-8 bucks a month for something they would normally see for free on YouTube? If they advertise the hell out of WOH when they make this service, and show a lot more women's matches, I think maybe. But if they keep at the same pace, I don't think it'd be smart financially to move it away from YouTube.

I could see people paying for the content when it is coupled with past footage and possibly all the shows on demand from this point on

I rather enjoyed the four way match on WOH Wednesday this week. Brooks looked like a monster.

STARDOM's president, Rossy Ogawa, and STARDOM's wrestler, Mayu Iwatani, are in NYC. I've been also been told that they already have a WOH championship, but I don't know if they will show it tomorrow:

A working relationship with Stardom makes sense for both, I do hope it means that ROH will be able to bring in much better workers, because right now Deonna and Karren Q are way ahead of everyone on that part of the roster and they shouldn't be stagnated through lesser talent.

Also if Deonna or Karren aren't the first champs it will be a crime, having mandy as champ would just be too much.

Expect a tournament announcement for the WOH title in the Spring leading into SCOH.

I think the announcement will be made to the live crowd tonight with a half dozen women in the ring.
