Riho defeated Yuka Sakazaki to qualify for the Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament on this week's AEW Rampage episode. 

In her first match in nearly four months, Riho defeated Sakazaki to qualify, setting up a first round matchup against Ruby Soho. That match will take place on next week's AEW Rampage episode. 

AEW commentator Excalibur said during Friday's Rampage broadcast that Riho had been out of action with a shoulder injury suffered in a match with Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. at Battle of the Belts in January. 

The full bracket for the Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament was revealed on Rampage. Toni Storm will face Jamie Hayter in the first quarterfinal matchup on Dynamite on Wednesday. Riho vs. Soho will take place on next week's Rampage. Red Velvet vs. Hikaru Shida, plus Baker vs. a Joker mystery opponent are the remaining first round matchups. No date was announced for Baker vs. Joker or Shida vs. Velvet.
