During a Friday podcast appearance, Ring of Honor head Tony Khan gave an update on the situation regarding reigning ROH Women's Champion Deonna Purrazzo who is under contract to Impact Wrestling.

Khan was on the Strong Style YouTube show and was asked what was going on considering both ROH and Impact Wrestling are both holding pay-per-views next Friday night.

Purrazzo is booked for the Impact show in a Champ-Champ Challenge where she will defend either the AAA Reina de Reinas or ROH title against a mystery opponent.

"When Deonna won the Ring of Honor title, when they booked that match, I did not have an agreement in place to buy Ring of Honor yet and was not booking the matches," Khan said. "With them having a show the night of our pay-per-view, I don't know how it's going to work out. Scott [D'Amore] and I are still talking about that because I completely respect their position that they have an event that night too."

Khan has announced a handful of matches for his Supercard of Honor event that begins at 8 PM Eastern while the Impact Multiverse show starts at 10 PM Eastern.

"I question the wisdom at the time, maybe, of doing a match where there is a possibility of someone taking the belt of another company that's running a show the very same night but again now I'm doing the booking (for ROH)," Khan continued. "So, we'll see how that shakes out."

Khan said that he would love to have Purrazzo in ROH and that he would like her to defend the gold on the Supercard show. However, "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."
