Abadon made her return to AEW tonight on Dynamite, making clear she was next in line for the AEW Women’s title.
After Hikaru Shida had successfully defended the title against Anna Jay, Shida posed with the title on the ramp. However, Abadon’s music hit and she came out of the entranceway crawling towards Shida. Shida dropped to the floor and retreated. Abadon took the title and spit what apparently was blood all over the championship.
Abadon had not been on AEW television since October. She was injured in a match last month against Tay Conti that was taped for Dark. She took an elbow to the throat, and was unable to breathe. The injury was serious enough that the match was stopped immediately. Abadon was sent to the hospital for evaluation, and the match never aired.
Prior to her injury, Abadon had wrestled primarily on Dark. She last appeared on Dynamite beating Anna Jay on the June 11th edition of the program.
