ROH made the match official on this week’s episode of Ring of Honor, when Shida challenged Athena to a match at Supercard of Honor for her title.

On the March 14th episode of ROH on HonorClub, Athena defeated Aisha in a “Proving Ground” which continued her winning run. Athena took to the microphone post-match, because she wasn’t happy. She accused the locker room of running from her, and asked for more competition from the ROH women.
