Hikaru Shida vs. Kris Statlander announced for AEW Dynamite


This week's episode of Dynamite is now up to five announced matches.

Hikaru Shida vs. Kris Statlander is the latest addition to the lineup for the show. It's taking place at the State Farm Center in Champaign, Illinois and will also feature The Young Bucks & Dustin Rhodes vs. Santana, Ortiz & Sammy Guevara, Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela, Pentagon Jr. vs. Christopher Daniels, and Fenix vs. Trent Barreta.

After defeating Britt Baker two weeks ago, Shida is currently ranked as the top challenger to AEW Women's Champion Riho. Shida has a 3-1 singles record and a 4-2 record overall.

One of Shida's losses was while teaming with Statlander on Dynamite last week. Emi Sakura & Bea Priestley defeated Shida & Statlander, with Sakura hitting Statlander with a mic stand and Priestley giving her a back suplex before Sakura got the pin.

Statlander made her AEW debut by teaming with Big Swole against Riho & Baker on AEW Dark last month.
