Rok-C defeats Miranda Alize, becoming the youngest champion in ROH history and the new ROH women’s world champion. This finals match concludes the ROH Women’s Championship tournament and yet again herstory was made in the world of wrestling!
Before the match, Rok-C talks about no longer being a caterpillar but not yet being a butterfly either. Her victory over wrestling legend, Angelina Love, got her the ticket to the finals and her wings are starting to show.

She says: “it doesn’t matter how old you are. it doesn’t matter what you look like. It doesn’t matter where you’re from. You can be anything you want to be,” which is what makes her The Prodigy.
The match begins with the legendary Bobby Cruise introducing the women while Alize denies Rok-C’s handshake. The evenly matched pair perfectly lock up and the advantage goes up in the air. Alize’s confidence starts to get the best of her as Rok-C begins to take control. Gaining the edge, Rok-C continues to use her foot techinique but slowly loses it with the power of Alize. Rok-C struggles to break free from the Miranda Rights crossface which gave Miranda the win in the semifinals. Although the submission is unsuccessful, Rok-C gains the strength to counter into her own crossface and later finishes Alize with Code Roc.
She is joined in the ring by Maria Kanellis who presents her with the ROH Women’s World Championship. Moments later, her mom and dad join her in the ring for the monumental celebration. The D.M.D. herself, AEW Women’s World Champion, Dr. Britt Baker, takes to twitter to congratulate the newly awarded champion from one to another. Could we see a possible match between these two in the near future?
The undefeated strike continues for Rok-C and the question of who’s next for the newly crowned champion begin to arise. Victories bring challenges and the other women of ROH have their eyes set on the championship, especially NWA Women’s Invitational Cup winner, Chelsea Green.
