Next week, Nyla Rose faces Riho for her AEW Women’s Championship in their first singles meeting since the championship was won on the first episode of Dynamite.
On Wednesday Night, Nyla Rose established herself not only as the number one competitor for Riho’s AEW Women’s Championship, but also as one of the most physically imposing people on a major wrestling roster today.
A backstage segment saw Rose – a mainstay on AEW television, aside from her brief suspension for putting official Rick Knox through a table – being called to action by PAC who had cornered the champion Riho to force Kenny Omega into a match at Revolution, the promotion’s upcoming Pay Per View.
After Kenny agreed to the match, PAC seemingly satisfied said, “I may be a bastard Kenny, but I’m no beast. She is.” and crossed the camera. Rose then lunged from backstage and shoulder tackled Riho before pulling her to her feet by her hair and again power bombing the smaller competitor onto a table.
She turned to the camera and with a crazed look in her eye called out the champion saying, “You have been marked and next week, your ass is mine.”
With a later announcement by Jim Ross confirming that the contest taking place in Austin, Texas is indeed for the title, here are three reasons why Nyla Rose should be crowned the new AEW Women’s Champion.
