AEW Women’s World Champion, Hikaru Shida and NWA Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa will team next week. Champion and champion will join forces to take on the team of Diamante and Ivelisse.
The partnership happened when Shida saved Rosa from a post-match beatdown from Ivelisse and Diamante. Former opponents are now teammates on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
The aforementioned beatdown took place after Thunder Rosa defended her NWA championship against Ivelisse.
This was an historic and monumental occasion as it was the first time another promotion’s Championship was defended on AEW.
The match was a wonderfully grinding and hard-hitting affair. The two former Lucha Underground star beat the hell out of each other with vicious slaps and wince-inducing strikes.
Both competitors are known for the strong-style, and they certainly showed it here and more. The match built up to an epic conclusion and brutal Tombstone Piledriver finish from Rosa to get her second victory in AEW.
In a span of two weeks, Thunder Rosa has had three incredible matches on AEW programming. These three matches have easily been the best women’s matches in AEW. Her presence on Dynamite has flipped the AEW women’s division on its head. She has brought an excitement, legitimacy and star power to the division
