A fourth entrant is now confirmed for the women's Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.

On Friday's AEW Rampage, Red Velvet defeated Willow Nightingale in a qualifying match to join Jamie Hayter, Toni Storm and Hikaru Shida in the eight-woman tourney.

It was a competitive bout between Velvet and Nightingale as the latter nearly pulled off the win several times with a big spinebuster/pounce combo and a rolling cannonball that got a near fall each.

Velvet ended things with a spinning kick to a grounded Nightingale for the win.

Shida qualified on Wednesday by defeating Julia Hart, Hayter earned her spot by beating Skye Blue while Storm defeated The Bunny in her AEW debut.

On the men's side, Samoa Joe became the first qualifier last Wednesday with his debut win over Max Caster.

The women's and men's tournaments don't have an official start date, but they do have an official end date: Double or Nothing on Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas.
