Lenny Leonard returning to ROH to call Women's title tournament


A former Ring of Honor commentator is returning to the company to call their Women's World Championship tournament.

On this week's episode of the ROHStrong Podcast, it was announced that Lenny Leonard will be part of the commentary team for ROH's Women's World Championship tournament. The tournament is taking place this summer.

Leonard was originally with ROH from 2005-2009. EVOLVE, Shimmer, Shine, Dragon Gate, and Dragon Gate USA are among the promotions he's also done commentary for.

ROH has announced that an entrant in the Women's World Championship tournament will be revealed this Wednesday:

ROH Board of Directors member Maria Kanellis-Bennett will inform one competitor via a Zoom call on ROH’s YouTube channel on Wednesday that she has been granted entrance into the tournament, which takes place this summer.

The call will occur immediately following the Women’s Division Wednesday match on YouTube, which begins at 7 p.m. Eastern time. Every Wednesday going forward, ROH will air a new women’s match at that time and Kanellis-Bennett will present another competitor with a 'ticket to gold.'

Angelina Love is also set to take part in the tournament. if Love defeats Quinn McKay on the ROH TV episode that premieres this coming weekend, Love will earn a first-round bye.

The ROH Women's World Championship tournament was originally supposed to be held in 2020 but was delayed following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ROH Women's World Championship is a new title, replacing the former Women of Honor World Championship.
