Maria Kanellis Wants Ruby Riott In ROH
The Ring of Honor women’s division is in the middle of a huge upgrade, with a forthcoming tournament set to crown a new ROH Women’s World Champion.
ROH’s Maria Kanellis has already unveiled the brackets for the tournament, as well as introduced Chelsea Green to the fold, but isn’t done there, revealing to The Wrestling Inc. Daily that she wants Ruby Riott to come to ROH.
“Heidi, Heidi, Heidi,” exclaimed Maria, referring to Riott’s old indies name Heidi Lovelace.
Mike Bennett added some names of his own too, but to join ROH as a whole, not just the women’s division:
“There are so many people. Maria wants Ruby Riott. I would love Anthony Greene [formerly known as August Grey in the WWE] to come over to Ring of Honor. I think the absolute world of him. But, you know, even guys like Buddy Murphy I think would kill it at Ring of Honor. I would love to see Rowan, who got released when we got released. I would love to see him come over. I would love to see Aiden English come over. I would love to see The Iiconics come over.
“There’s just so much talent that got released, that my mind can’t even comprehend. I would literally take all of them and be like, ‘Yes, you could make our show better, please come make our show better.’ But if I had to pick one person, I would pick Anthony Greene. Because I think the absolute world of him.”
But Kanellis doubled down on her want of Riott - now known as Ruby Soho:
“You know what? I just want [Ruby Riott]. Whether her name is Ruby Soho, or Heidi Lovelace, or Ruby Riott, I just think she’s incredible.”
