The Women of Honor Championship will be defended for the first time on international soil when the first Women of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai defends against “The Queen of Chavs” Chardonnay in Chardonnay’s home country!
The Women of Honor Championship will be defended for the first time on international soil when Sumie Sakai defends her championship against a competitor with international experience in STARDOM’s Chardonnay in Doncaster!
Chardonnay, who makes her Women of Honor debut earlier on the tour in tag team action in Edinburgh, is a member of STARDOM’s Queen’s Quest and has quickly established herself as a top international competitor after breaking into professional wrestling just four years ago under the tutelage of Robbie Brookside.
Her four years in wrestling may be in stark contrast to the Champion Sumie’s near 20-year career that has links to Lioness Asuka and Jaguar Yakota, two of the all-time great female wrestlers, but Chardonnay will have speed, height, and reach advantages on the champ.
For Sumie, the defense on foreign soil has its disadvantages but the champion is used to fighting on foreign soil: Sumie gave up her life in Japan in 2002 to pursue a professional wrestling career in the United States, the same year she made her debut in Ring of Honor. The litany of opponents Sumie has faced gives her an experience edge that wrestlers cannot buy and should make for an incredible match-up!
