AEW has announced via Twitter that a championship match for the January 1, 2020 episode has been changed due to a wrestler’s prior commitments.
Kris Statlander was set to challenge Riho for the Women’s World Championship, but can’t make the show.
Instead, Riho will defend in a four-way against Nyla Rose, Britt Baker, and Hikaru Shida.
The promotion tweeted:
Due to prior commitments, Kris Statlander will not be in Jacksonville to face Riho for the #AEW Women’s World Championship on Wed, Jan 1st. Riho will still defend her championship in a 4 way match w/ Nyla Rose, Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida
The good news is Statlander will take on the winner of the four-way a week later on January 8, AEW confirmed in a follow-up tweet.
The tweet did not, however, confirm it would be championship match, so I guess we’ll have to see on that.
