AEW is having the second night of its New Year’s Smash on Jan. 13 and the second women’s match is said to no longer be on the card. A match that has been brewing for quite some time between Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa is now reportedly not happening.
Instead, Baker will be hosting a segment of The Waiting Room with Cody Rhodes as her guest. This will be the first time that The Waiting Room will appear on Dynamite.
According to a report in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, these changes had to be made because Rosa was exposed to somebody who has tested positive for COVID-19. The match between her and Baker is expected to pick back up at a later time. This reasoning has not been confirmed by AEW but the match is no longer listed on the card.
The women’s match that is scheduled for this show will be Tay Conti getting her first televised championship match against Serena Deeb for the NWA World Women’s Title.
