In an exclusive interview with WrestlingNews.Co, Ring of Honor (ROH) Women's Champion, Athena, revealed her ambitions to headline the upcoming Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view event. In a passionate dialogue with interviewer Steve Fall, Athena expressed her readiness to shoulder the responsibility of main eventing such a prestigious occasion.
Despite an illustrious career with countless achievements, Athena confessed to never having had the honor of headlining a pay-per-view event. She has consistently proven her mettle in indie shows and smaller venues, but headlining Death Before Dishonor is an entirely different ball game.
For her, this isn't just another feather in her cap; it's an opportunity to stamp her authority on the world stage. "I'm neither overrated nor underrated. I am Athena, The Fallen Goddess," she declared with characteristic enthusiasm.
"I'm eager to embrace this responsibility and to prove, first and foremost to myself, that I can rise to this momentous occasion."
High Stakes for Athena-Nightingale Showdown
Athena's unwavering confidence in her ability and that of her opponent, Willow Nightingale, to captivate audiences.
Their two previous encounters have generated sparks, and the stage is set for a thrilling contest at Death Before Dishonor. This time around, however, the stakes are higher, and the spotlight brighter than ever. "I am thoroughly convinced in my heart and soul that we are going to deliver a spectacular fight," Athena stated confidently.
"With everything in me, I am hoping to cross off another item from my bucket list by main-eventing a pay-per-view." Athena also acknowledged the significant strides made by Ring of Honor under Tony Khan's stewardship. The wrestling mogul's relentless efforts to elevate the women's division have opened up possibilities for female talents, including Athena.
"The revamped ROH has been phenomenal in its support for women's wrestling," Athena affirmed. "The opportunity to headline a pay-per-view is within reach. Now, we must wait until Friday to see if this dream becomes a reality."
