The women’s tag match for Wednesday’s Dynamite has been changed.
AEW on social media wrote that Shida isn’t cleared by doctors due to an attack that took place on AEW Dark, which aired on Tuesday. Athena will replace Shida in the match for this Wednesday, teaming with Toni Storm to take on Serena Deeb and Britt Baker.
“After an apparent attack on @shidahikaru tonight on #AEWDark, Shida isn’t cleared by the docs to compete, so #AEW Interim Women's World Champion #ToniStorm will team w/ @AthenaPalmer_FG vs @realbrittbaker & @SerenaDeeb on #AEWDynamite LIVE @ 8pm ET/7pm CT on @TBSNetwork TOMORROW!,” AEW’s Twitter wrote.
AEW aired an angle on Dark where Rebel was seen walking out of Hikaru Shida’s dressing room. Baker then emerged with a kendo stick and told interviewer Alex Marvez that if she couldn’t get the tag team partner of her choice, then Toni Storm couldn’t get her choice of a tag partner either. Marvez then called for medical attention as doctors went inside Shida's dressing room.
Here is the updated lineup for Wednesday’s Dynamite:
- Tournament of Champions second round: Bryan Danielson vs. Chris Jericho
- Tournament of Champions second round: Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara
- Toni Storm & Athena vs. Britt Baker & Serena Deeb
