In a move that has taken the wrestling community by storm, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) recently unveiled plans for an exhilarating tournament set to culminate in a fatal four-way battle for the esteemed Women's World Championship.
The showdown is slated for the grand stage of Wembley Stadium on August 27, during their much-anticipated event, "All In." The revelation came during the thrilling first hour of "AEW Dynamite," leaving fans abuzz with speculation and excitement.
The graphic display teased a line-up that promises hard-hitting action and riveting drama. The stakes were immediately raised as Hikaru Shida, the reigning women's champion, squared off with the formidable Anna Jay on Wednesday night.
With the championship in her sights, the victor will advance to the four-way match, primed to defend the coveted title.
Dynamite's Anticipated Comeback Clashes
As if that wasn't enough to keep fans on the edge of their seats, next week's "Dynamite" will herald the comeback of The Bunny.
After a brief hiatus due to an orbital bone injury, she'll be pitted against the ever-resilient Britt Baker, D.M.D. In addition, the fierce Saraya is scheduled to lock horns with Sky Blue in an upcoming bout on "Rampage." Victory for these warriors guarantees a spot in the nail-biting championship showdown.
But there's a twist. Former women's champion, Toni Storm, has managed to secure her position in the four-way match without breaking a sweat. Thanks to her rematch clause, invoked after a heart-wrenching loss to Shida on "Dynamite's" landmark 200th episode, Storm bypasses the initial stages of the tournament.
Wrestling aficionados will remember her triumphant victory at All Out 2022's fatal four-way, where she clinched the interim title amidst fierce competition, stepping up when Thunder Rosa was sidelined due to injury. AEW continues to up the ante.
The "All In" card will also feature a match of titanic proportions as FTR is set to clash with The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championship. And, in what promises to be an explosive main event, AEW World Champion MJF is geared to defend his reign against the indomitable Adam Cole. The stage at Wembley is set, and the wrestling world waits with bated breath.
