Thunder Rosa appears on AEW Dynamite, challenges Hikaru Shida


NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa appeared on Dynamite tonight, challenging Hirkau Shida to a match at All Out next month.

Rosa appeared in a pre-taped interview with the NWA Women’s championship and was identified as champion. She called out Hikaru Shida, citing her call for challengers and challenged her to a match at All Out for the AEW Women’s championship. Rosa finished the promo by saying she would become the next AEW Women's champion.

Hikaru Shida did not appear on the program tonight and no response was given.

Rosa won the NWA Women's championship back on January 24 at NWA Hard Times. The promotion has not run any shows since February due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rosa last defended the NWA Women's title against Melina, winning the match by count out.

Shida hasn’t wrestled for most of this last month, last defeating Heather Monroe on the August 12 edition of AEW Dynamite. She last defended the AEW Women’s championship by defeating Penelope Ford on the July 1 edition of Dynamite.
