Riho took down Hikaru Shida tonight at AEW All Out, which means she will be facing Nyla Rose for the inaugural AEW Women’s World Championship in October. After a back-and-forth match that saw both superstars give it their all, it was Riho who was able to come away with the win after she successfully dodged a knee strike and then trapped Shida with a rollup pin for the victory. After the match, Nyla herself came out, staring down Riho as the two now prepare to face off on October 2, when All Elite Wrestling will debut on TNT in Washington, DC.
