Hikaru Shida vs Riho match at All Out to determine #1 contender for inaugural AEW Women’s title

 
 

The winner of the match between Hikaru Shida and Riho at the All Out pay-per-view will become the second #1 contender for the AEW Women’s title.

The first #1 contender will be decided during the Buy In pre-show where 21 women will be competing in the Casino Battle Royale. The winners of the two matches will then go one-on-one on the first AEW on TNT show on October 2 in Washington, D.C. to crown the inaugural AEW Women’s champion.

Riho has not yet signed an AEW deal while Hikaru Shida is a member of the AEW roster, a detail that might play in the outcome of the match.

So far, Nyla Rose, Britt Baker, Allie, Brandi Rhodes, Teal Piper, Ivelisse, Jazz, Big Swole, and Sadie Gibbs have been announced as entrants in the Casino Battle Royale.
