In an electrifying display of athleticism and prowess, Hikaru Shida defended her AEW Women's Championship title, proving once again why she’s at the pinnacle of women's wrestling. Last evening’s AEW Dynamite, hosted in Columbus, turned into a spectacle as Shida clashed with the formidable Anna Jay in what can only be described as an epic main event.
For those who have been tracking Shida’s journey, it was just last week when she showcased her undeniable talent by snatching the title from Toni Storm. Fast forward to this week, Shida managed to hold onto her newly acquired honor, with her signature move, the Katana, sealing the victory for her.
However, it would be remiss not to mention the thrilling performance by Anna Jay. There was a moment during the match where the crowd held its collective breath as Jay unleashed the Queen Slayer. The tweet by All Elite Wrestling perfectly captured this move, and if you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out on a slice of wrestling history.
