A match for the AEW Women’s World title has been announced for Double or Nothing.
AEW confirmed tonight on Dynamite that Hikaru Shida will defend the title against Britt Baker at Double or Nothing on May 30 . The two have been feuding in recent weeks, with the storyline being that Baker has racked up victories on Dark and Dark: Elevation, putting her at the top of the women’s division rankings.
In recent months, Shida has defended the AEW Women’s title against Ryo Mizunami, Abadon, and most recently Tay Conti on the April 21 edition of Dynamite. After Shida successfully retained the title, Baker came out and showed a graphic of her officially becoming the number one contender.
The AEW Women’s Championship match is the first match to be announced for Double or Nothing, which is expected to be the first AEW event with a full capacity crowd since March of 2020. A number one contender’s match between PAC and Orange Cassidy will determine Kenny Omega’s opponent for the show on next week's Dynamite, and Cody Rhodes will make a major announcement regarding Double or Nothing on the same show.
