At AEW All Out, Thunder Rosa delivered a show-stopping match with Hikaru Shida that could open the door to a wealth of possibilities.

When the reigning NWA World Women’s Champion officially challenged Hikaru Shida, most fans that were familiar with Thunder Rosa knew they were in for a treat. The AEW women’s title match certainly didn’t disappoint as the two champions clashed in the match of the night. Considering the intrigue it created and the state of AEW’s women’s division, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring in other women’s champions for cross-promotional bouts.

AEW has been highly criticized for the use of its women’s roster and rightfully so. It’s the biggest flaw in the company’s presentation by far. However, the Tooth and Nail match and an excellent title match over the weekend proved once again that women can be an integral part of their programming.

Unfortunately, the company has lost one of its best acquisitions, Kris Statlander, to a knee injury and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19 have kept Shanna and Riho off of television. AEW still has some big up-and-coming stars in Britt Baker and Big Swole, but they have a tough task ahead of them.

Continuing to bring in women’s champions from other companies could help them promote women’s wrestling in the meantime. It’s not unheard of as other promotions like STARDOM have done it in the past. So, here are some champions that we would like to see compete for AEW.
