– Thunder Rosa heads out, and wants to tell her story. She says success is her being champion, but when she first arrived there were no expectations, but since then she’s become the backbone of the division. Rosa says she is the top competitor, and she wants to work against the best with the most experience.
Before she was Thunder Rosa, she would drive around to watch one wrestler only, who inspired her to become the best. That leads to her calling out the number one contender…Serena Deeb. The challenger says it has been a long time. She’s watched Thunder scratch her way to the top, and she respects her. Deeb says they can make this the best women’s division in the world, but for that to happen, the best wrestler needs to be champion.
Thunder says the title indicates she is the best in the world, and Serena says it suggests it. But what everyone thinks is that she’s on another level, she’s on a class on her own, and it’s time that she has the championship to show that. Serena bets that Rosa will have the shortest reign in history, because at Double Or Nothing she’s taking the title.
Mercedes Martinez (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo (c) (Undisputed ROH Women’s World Championship Match)
The interim champion fights back with some major slaps, and they then head to the apron as Deonna wraps Mercedes’ arm around the ropes to attack it. She continues that by yanking it around the ring post as well. The two women then begin throwing hands on the outside until Deonna sends Martinez into the ring post.
Both of them make the 20 count and Martinez hits several lariats and then a backdrop to start picking up momentum. She charges into the corner and follows with a couple of boots to the face, but it’s not enough to get the job done. Mercedes nails a running knee and a fisherman buster, but Deonna continues kicking out.
Purrazzo responds by turning her opponent inside out down to the mat, but this time it is Martinez kicking out. Both of them then go for a clothesline, and that leaves them laying. Purrazzo goes to the top rope but eats a slap as she then gets slammed back down. Martinez stomps Deonna into the ground, and she looks for a dragon sleeper, but Purrazzo tries to bite out of it. That doesn’t work though, and Martinez locks in the submission as Deonna taps out!
Winner (and Undisputed ROH Women’s World Champion): Mercedes Martinez
