Riho has owned Nyla Rose once the bell rings.
There truly is no other way to look at it because in the three times they have been opponents (one Triple Threat, one Singles Match, and a Four Way), Riho has been the victor in every single one. The most important of the trio is undoubtedly that Singles Match as that battle was to crown the very first AEW Women’s World Champion. In straight up one-on-one competition, with the most important prize at stake, Riho defeated Nyla Rose and it has eaten her up ever since.
The rage that is bursting out of Rose has only built with each passing week, to the point where at the end of 2019 she found herself suspended without pay because of her violent actions. Then, just to send a message, when Rose return to action at the “Homecoming” edition of “Dynamite” as part of the Four Way Women’s Title match, she showed no remorse when decimating Riho with a table following another loss.
And as seen in the video above, that rage has not abated, but will finally have an official outlet this Wednesday night when Riho attempts to defend her title for the 5th time in her 130+ day title reign. She has beaten Britt Baker, Emi Sakura, and Kris Statlander in singles matches (the last albeit with some unwanted outside involvement) as well as Baker, Hikaru Shida, and Rose in that aforementioned Four Way contest. Will this week’s episode of “Dynamite” be a repeat of the very first where Riho beat Rose, or will Nyla change her fortunes and channel all that red rage into championship success?
