The Ring of Honor women's division was set for a major restart before the global pandemic. Now, one of the promotions prominent female stars are urging fans to be patient with the growth of the division.
Before the global coronavirus pandemic shut everything down, Ring of Honor had planned on hosting a 16-woman tournament. Initially set to begin on April 24. The winner of the tournament will become the new Ring of Honor Women's World Champion, replacing the Women of Honor title the company had for the last few years.
Since the company began re-filming shows inside their own bubble in Baltimore, Maryland, there has been no major development regarding the future of the inaugural Ring of Honor Women's World Championship.
Taking to Twitter, Quinn McKay displayed frustration with some fans calling for Ring of Honor to stop pursuing a prominent women's division altogether.
I want to clarify that this is about fans by and large completely dismissing the women’s division in ROH. I’m tired of it. We have things in store. Just wait instead of hate. https://t.co/nyNVfXQphd— Quinn McKay (@QuinnMcKay) November 27, 2020
In a follow-up to those tweets, McKay would talk about how movements like #GiveDivasAChance helped grow women's wrestling as a whole.
1/4 I’m going to say this about my tweet yesterday, and then I’m not going to say anything else about it: it’s hard for something to succeed when it seems like an overwhelming amount of people are hoping for it to fail just to prove a point.— Quinn McKay (@QuinnMcKay) November 28, 2020
3/4 A pandemic stopped everything in its tracks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a master plan. You have to remember that we can only film so many episodes at a time, and trying to do it as safely as possible. Ultimately, you’re entitled to your opinion, but consider this:— Quinn McKay (@QuinnMcKay) November 28, 2020
And if you aren’t the kind of person that’s calling for ROH to cancel it’s women’s division completely, don’t get worked up by this tweet. This obviously doesn’t apply to you.— Quinn McKay (@QuinnMcKay) November 28, 2020
