Riho has punched her ticket for challenging for the AEW Women’s Championship by defeating Hikaru Shida. She will advance to face Nyla Rose. The match is scheduled for the October 2nd AEW weekly television debut.

Nyla Rose won her way into the match by winning the 21-Woman Casino Battle Royale earlier in the night at All Out. Many expected Britt Baker to come out victorious. However, it was Rose who prevailed.
It will be interesting to see how these two ladies mesh in the ring. It will be size vs. speed. On one hand, Riho is a pet project of Kenny Omega and may be the favorite. However, Nyla Rose has a lot of appeal and would be a great example of AEW being accepting of all types of wrestlers in their company.
