ROH Women's World Champion Rok-C is set to make her MLW debut.

It was announced today that Rok-C will debut for MLW at the promotions Blood & Thunder tapings in Dallas on Friday, January 21. The tapings are being held at Gilley's Dallas.

MLW touted that Rok-C debuting for the promotion is part of its new "open door policy" for free agents.

Rok-C became the inaugural ROH Women's World Champion by defeating Miranda Alize in the finals of a tournament this September. Rok-C will defend the title against either Willow Nightingale or Mandy Leon at December's Final Battle pay-per-view. After the PPV, ROH is going on hiatus for the first quarter of 2022. ROH talent won't have their contracts renewed following Final Battle.

Nightingale and Leon are facing off on this weekend's episode of ROH TV to determine Rok-C's Final Battle challenger.

Texas is Rok-C's home state. She was trained by Booker T and was a champion for his Reality of Wrestling promotion.

It's also been announced that The Von Erichs (Marshall & Ross Von Erich) will challenge for the MLW Tag Team titles at Blood & Thunder. The show will be MLW's first event of 2022.
