In a jaw-dropping main event on this week's episode of AEW Rampage, the in-ring prowess of Hikaru Shida came to the fore as she overcame Ruby Soho. This significant victory has now paved the way for Shida to face her partner, Saraya, for the coveted AEW Women’s World Championship.
This high-octane title match is set to air on AEW Dynamite's special edition, 'Title Tuesday,' on October 10. Interestingly, Dynamite's decision to shift from its customary Wednesday broadcast to Tuesday is influenced by TBS's commitment to showcasing the Major League Baseball playoffs.
Fans of AEW will need to mark their calendars and ensure they don’t miss out on this unusual day shift. Reflecting on the climactic moments of the Shida-Soho bout on Rampage, it was filled with twists that had fans at the edge of their seats.
Just when Soho was attempting to gain an upper hand with a sneaky spray can against Shida, a sudden turn of events saw the referee unintentionally pushed out of the ring. Taking advantage of the chaos, the ever-resilient Shida unleashed her might, first with a defining strike using her kendo stick and then with a signature Katana attack on Soho.
With the initial referee out of the scene, tension built up among the audience. But in a timely intervention, Aubrey Edwards stormed the ring to make the pin count, solidifying Shida’s path towards the AEW Women’s World Championship.
Clash of Titans Awaited
As the dust settles after Rampage, fans are eagerly awaiting further announcements regarding matches for Dynamite's 'Title Tuesday' Given the excitement surrounding the Shida-Saraya face-off, one can only anticipate a card that is stacked and filled with thrilling encounters.
