Women of Honor Champion Crowned At Supercard Of Honor XII

Ring of Honor has a woman champion. 

After winning two matches in one night, Sumie Sakai has became the inaugural Women of Honor Champion. She defeated Tenille Dashwood during the pre-show of Supercard of Honor XII and then on the main card of the pay-per-view, she defeated Kelly Klein in the finals of the tournament

The following is an excerpt from the Fightful Wrestling live coverage provided by John Moorehouse. 

Both ladies are down as several of the other Women of Honor come out to around the ring, cheering on Sakai as the two women start exchanging strikes from their knees. Sakai gets the better of it but Klein cuts her off with a push kick to the chest. Pin attempt gets two. WOH competitors now surrounding the ring, pounding the apron and rooting for Sakai. Northern lights suplex with a tremendous bridge by Klein, but she loses the bridge as Colt shrewdly notes on commentary and Sakai escapes at 2 and a half. All the ladies surrounding the ring have been joined by Daffney. Fisherman's brainbuster by Sakai! Sakai positioning Klein and posturing to the crowd as she scales for the moonsault. Barely hits Klein. Sakai with a running kick to a kneeling Klein. DDT by Sakai. And... that's it. Hmm. That was anti-climactic.

WIN: Sumie Sakai to become the first WOH Champion.
