Last night’s AEW Dynamite saw a huge change confirmed for an upcoming major championship match at All Out as AEW’s injury curse returns.
A backstage segment on Dynamite saw Tony Schiavone interview a visibly upset Thunder Rosa, who revealed that she will relinquish the AEW Women’s World Championship, where the title will be vacant heading into All Out.
Thunder Rosa held the title for 117 days after dethroning the reign of Dr Britt Baker D.M.D at St Patrick’s Day Slam inside a steel cage. During her reign, Rosa defeated the likes of Marina Shafir, Nyla Rose, Toni Storm and more.
Rosa was scheduled to take on Toni Storm at All Out after Storm climbed the rankings, earning the number one contender’s spot and defeating KiLynn King.
However, now Toni Storm will have to defeat three other women who each have their sights set on either holding gold for the first time or becoming a 2x AEW Women’s World Champion.
The match is confirmed to be a fatal four-way, with the other three participants being Jamie Hayter and two former AEW Women’s Champions in Hikaru Shida and Dr Britt Baker D.M.D.
We got a sneak preview of All-Out after Britt Baker defeated KiLynn King. Baker’s post-match comments catalysed the arrival of Storm. Just as Toni was about to get in the ring, she was blindsided by Jamie Hayter
As Hayter and Baker carried out a two-on-one attack on Storm, Shida emerged to level the playing field.
