AEW’s injury list has been problematic for months. It appears the curse continues as a top champion revealed on Dynamite that they would be having to miss All Out due to suffering an injury.
AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa appeared emotional in a backstage segment with Tony Schiavone, where she revealed that she will miss her title defence at All Out due to injury.
Rosa was scheduled to take on her Thunderstorm tag team partner Toni Storm in a one-on-one match.
However, due to Rosa’s injury, the match is now changed to a 4-way where Toni Storm will take on Jamie Hayter and former AEW Women’s Champions Hikaru Shida and Dr Britt Baker D.M.D.
We got a preview of the match on Dynamite after the Baker vs KiLynn King match, where Shida came to the aid of Toni Storm.
Meltzer noted that the original plan for the match saw a new champion crowned as Rosa would lose to Toni Storm.
The recent changes could mean that Tony Khan could potentially put the title back on Britt Baker due to her being the biggest women’s star the company has, injecting a new drive into the women’s division.
However, the same result could play out where Storm wins the Interim title at All Out and then when Rosa returns, the tag partners collide similar to how Moxley and Punk did on Dynamite to determine an Undisputed AEW Women’s Champion.
