AEW WOMEN’S WORLD TITLE MATCH: HIKARU SHIDA (c) vs. (#1) “THE NATIVE BEAST” NYLA ROSE (w/ VICKI GUERRERO)
On May 23rd at DOUBLE OR NOTHING 2020, Hikaru Shida brought an end to the World Title reign of The Native Beast in a No Disqualification Match. With 101 days as champion under her belt, Nyla Rose certainly anticipated receiving a rematch in short order, and her perpetual standing atop the Women’s Division rankings also lent itself to her belief that the collision would come sooner than later.
But after five months of sitting back to watch Shida successfully defend against Penelope Ford, Thunder Rosa, and Big Swole, Rose got fed up with waiting for her rematch. On behalf of her client, Vickie Guerrero issued the challenge on AEW DARK, and Shida would immediately accept on the subsequent DYNAMITE, with the long awaited rematch scheduled for this Saturday night at FULL GEAR 2020!
Wednesday night on DYNAMITE, after Nyla Rose defeated Red Velvet, Vicki Guerrero first laid into Brandi Rhodes who was at ringside with Velvet before turning her attention to Shida. The champ, seated at ringside to watch her challenger, took great offense to Guerrero and gripped up Rose’s manager. Rose leaped to her defense, leading to brief but intense tussle between the two warriors as they head towards their championship rematch.
Will Nyla become the first two-time Women’s World Champion on Saturday night? Or will it be Shida who slays The Native Beast once and for all and moves onto whatever challenge comes her way next?
NWA WORLD WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: SERENA DEEB (c) vs. ALLYSIN KAY
On the heels of her first successful title defense against Leyla Hirsch, the newest NWA World Women’s Champion will make her second defense this Saturday night during THE BUY-IN, and the recipient of this title opportunity is a former champion herself: Allysin Kay.
Having reigned as the NWA champ for 272 days prior to Thunder Rosa ending her reign, Kay racked up five successful defenses of her own, but fell once again in the two competitors rematch. But on Saturday, under the auspices of the AEW banner, Kay will have a fresh opportunity to reclaim the title and be known as a two-time NWA Women’s World Champion! But Deeb is not going to give up that title without a fight, now so soon in her reign, not now, not ever….
