Nyla Rose advances in AEW Women's title eliminator tournament


The former AEW Women's Champion is one step closer to getting another shot at the title.

Nyla Rose advanced to the U.S. final with a win over Britt Baker Wednesday and will face the winner of Sunday's Riho vs. Thunder Rosa match. Also on Sunday, Ryo Mizunami will face Yuka Sakazaki in the Japan final.

However, it's unknown when the U.S. final will be held as a date wasn't announced. It's assumed the overall tournament final will be held next Wednesday on Dynamite given that Hikaru Shida is to defend the Women's title against the winner four days later at Revolution. However, that date also wasn't announced.

Rose (who was not accompanied by Vickie Guerrero) fought off two Lockjaw attempts, pinning Baker in a hard-fought match after a second Beast Bomb. Rose defeated Tay Conti in the first round while Baker picked up a win over injury substitute Madi Wrenkowski.

Since losing the title to Shida last November at Full Gear, Rose has won six in a row.
