Interim ROH Women's World title match added to Supercard of Honor

Mercedes Martinez vs. Willow Nightingale will square off with the winner facing Deonna Purrazzo.

ROH has announced there will be an Interim Women's World Championship match at Supercard of Honor. 

Mercedes Martinez will face Willow Nightingale with the winner moving on to wrestle current champion, Deonna Purrazzo, at a later date. The event takes place Friday, April 1 at 8 p.m Eastern time from the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas. 

Purrazzo will be holding her "champ-champ open challenge" at Impact Multiverse of Madness the same night beginning at 10 p.m Eastern time. AEW President Tony Khan said on the Strong Style YouTube show last Friday that he didn't want to make Purrazzo wrestle twice in the same evening. 

"I don't want to put her in a tough position where she has to wrestle twice in a span of a few hours but that could happen. Scott and I are still talking," he said. 

The updated lineup for ROH Supercard of Honor is as follows: 

  • Winner-take-all match to determine undisputed ROH World Champion: Jonathan Gresham vs. Bandido
  • ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes defend against FTR
  • ROH Pure Champion Josh Woods defends against Wheeler Yuta
  • Mercedes Martinez vs. Willow Nightingale for the Interim ROH Women's World Championship
  • Swerve The Realest (Shane Strickland) vs. Alex Zayne
  • Jay Lethal vs. Lee Moriarty w/ Matt Sydal
