Riho earned an AEW Women’s World Championship match after defeating the champion Dr. Britt Baker two weeks ago on Dynamite in a non-title match. The opportunity presented itself from Riho never being eliminated during the All Out Casino Battle Royale which Ruby Soho went on to win.
Although Riho has become the number one contender, the match hasn’t been given a date just yet. On tonight’s Dynamite, Riho had to go through Jamie Hayter with Baker and Rebel at ringside. Hayter recently lost her chance to become the first TBS Women’s Champion after a miscommunication between her and Baker had her lose to Thunder Rosa.
In a very competitive and excellent match between both women, Riho pulled out the victory on Hayter tonight. Rebel got involved and grabbed the foot of Riho as she was up on the turnbuckle. This allowed As Hayter to put her opponent on her shoulders from the second rope, Riho countered into an avalanche crucifix bomb. She follows it up with a double knee strike to get the three count.
After the match, Riho is extremely emotional over her win with tears in her eyes before Baker enters the ring to attack her and apply LockJaw to end the segment.
Other moment’s for the women included the following:
Promo aired for the upcoming semi-final match between Thunder Rosa and Jade Cargill for the TBS Women’s Title. The first champion will be crowned on Jan. 5 when Dynamite moves to the TBS Network.
A backstage segment involved Ruby Soho who was approached by The Bunny and Penelope Ford. The duo challenged Soho to a six-woman tag for this Friday’s Rampage if she could actually find any friends. Nyla Rose will be on the side of Bunny and Ford as she faces Soho in the other semi-finals match for the TBS Women’s Title in the near future.
The Bunny and Ford attack Soho as Rose and Vickie Guerrero join in on the attack until back-up comes for Soho. Tay Conti and Anna Jay come in to help Soho signifying they will be on her team for this week’s Rampage.
Next week’s Dynamite is the Winter is Coming event. Set for that will be the next chapter in the fight between Hikaru Shida and Serena Deeb in which a promo aired for their match. They are always a must-see.
Lastly, Julia Hart joined The Varsity Blonds on stage as they were being interviewed. The lights went out and Malakai Black appeared. Black removed his mask and face-covering before spitting the mist in the face of Hart who screamed to end the segment.
