Number one contender's match set for AEW Dynamite

Thunder Rosa and Leyla Hirsch will face off to determine Britt Baker's next challenger.

After coming up short at Revolution, Thunder Rosa is getting the chance to earn another shot at the AEW Women's World Championship.

AEW has announced that a number one contender's match between Rosa and Leyla Hirsch will take place on Dynamite this Wednesday. The winner will challenge Britt Baker for the AEW Women's World title on the St. Patrick's Day Slam edition of Dynamite the following week (Wednesday, March 16).

Baker retained her title against Rosa at Revolution tonight after Jamie Hayter and Rebel interfered throughout the match. Rosa gave Rebel a spear off the apron and took out Hayter, but Baker hit a stomp on Rosa when she came back into the ring and then pinned her.

Hirsch defeated Kris Statlander on the Buy-In show for Revolution.

St. Patrick's Day Slam is being held in Rosa's hometown of San Antonio, Texas.

At last year's St. Patrick's Day Slam, Rosa defeated Baker in an unsanctioned lights out match. It was the first-ever women's match to main event an episode of Dynamite.

Sammy Guevara defending his TNT Championship against Scorpio Sky is also set for this Wednesday's Dynamite. Wardlow will challenge the winner of that match for the TNT Championship at St. Patrick's Day Slam. Wardlow got the title shot by winning tonight's Face of the Revolution ladder match.
