Thunder Rosa is still the AEW Women’s World Champion.
AEW’s Fight For The Fallen edition of Dynamite featured Miyu Yamashita challenging Thunder Rosa for the top prize in the women’s division after Yamashita earned the opportunity by defeating Rosa in Japan earlier this month.
Their rematch on Dynamite came in the usual 9:30 ET time slot, but that didn’t stop them from putting on a physical contest. Thunder Rosa would secure the victory and retain her title via pinfall.
Earlier in the night, Sammy Guevara took on Dante Martin with Tay Conti at ringside for Guevara. Meanwhile, Martin had Skye Blue accompanying him to counter Conti’s presence. After the bout, things broke down and Ruby Soho joined Blackpool Combat Club in chasing off Anna Jay and the rest of Jericho Appreciation Society.
As a result of the melee, Ruby Soho will take on Anna Jay on Friday’s AEW Rampage. This will mark Jay’s first match since turning heel and Soho’s first since having her arm smashed by a car door.
We also learned that the August 3 edition of AEW Dynamite will feature a women’s tag bout as ThunderStorm’s Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm team up again to take on Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter. This comes after their backstage confrontation on the July 20th Dynamite.
Fight for the Fallen noticeably lacked the presence of AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill, however, she has been on the road in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con.
Looking forward, almost a month remains until AEW All Out, and a clear challenger for Thunder Rosa remains unknown. Are we on track to a rematch with Baker or perhaps a three-way also including Storm?
