Hikaru Shida has been struggling to finally make her way to the top of the women’s roster in All Elite Wrestling, and at Double or Nothing, she finally did it. In a match against Nyla Rose for the AEW Women’s Championship, Shida won, and finally is able to stake her claim atop all of AEW.
Things got extremely tough between the two superstars, with Rose and Shida going back-and-forth from the very start of the match. Things ended for Rose when Shida was able to land a few shots on her with a kendo stick before landing a running knee to her head.

For a brief recap of how things ended, check out below, and make sure to follow along with our live coverage of AEW Double or Nothing:
Nyla hangs Shida over the tope rope. She climbs the turnbuckle, and delivers a hard knee across the back of Shida’s head. Rose goes and grabs that table. She sets it up in the corner of the ring. Nyla was going to hit Shida with a DVD through the table but Shida stops it. The two fight it out but Rose lays a clothesline one her. She powerbombs Shida through the table. Covers, but it’s a two count.
DVD by Rose who then goes and grabs the kendo stick. She lays it into Shida before climbing the turnbuckle. Shida tosses the kendo at Rose and climbs up to hit a falcon arrow from the top for a very close fall. Nyla nails Shida with the kendo before hitting her knee again, but Shida still gets a near fall. She hits Rose with the kendo stick across the head before executing the running knee and that’s good enough for the 1-2-3. New champ!
