AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida vs. NWA Women's Champion Thunder Rosa is now official for AEW All Out.
Last Saturday, Rosa made a surprise appearance on Dynamite and challenged Shida to a title match at the company's September pay-per-view. On Thursday's Dynamite in a video package, Shida accepted and the contract was signed. The match is not title vs. title and is for just Shida's belt.
Rosa has been champion since January but with the NWA in a hiatus due to the pandemic, Tony Khan approached Billy Corgan about Rosa's availability and a deal was worked out. Corgan and footage of Rosa in the NWA were part of the video package Thursday.
Shida has been champion since May 23rd when she defeated Nyla Rose at Double or Nothing to win the title.
The field for the 21-man Casino Battle Royale at All Out began to take shape as several participants were announced or announced their intention to be in the match.
Darby Allin, Lance Archer, Brian Cage, Ricky Starks. Eddie Kingston, The Butcher, The Blade, Pentagon Jr. and Fenix will all be involved, leaving twelve participants left to go. The winner earns an AEW World title shot.
Following their brawl Thursday, an eight man tag team match was announced for the show featuring Dark Order (TNT Champion Mr. Brodie Lee, Colt Cabana, Evil Uno and Stu Grayson) vs. The Natural Nightmares (Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall), Scorpio Sky and Matt Cardona.
