Don’t get it wrong, those are some very talented women to defend against, but it seems Hayter should have more defenses by now. If Hayter were to drop the belt soon, where would it go from there? Below are some predictions for the next three women’s world champions.
With the debut of AEW Collision, Thunder Rosa is set to be a top star on the brand, and that is where the title could go next. Obviously, the women’s division has been put on the back burner on Dynamite since its birth, having only one match per week and more than often in the “death” timeslot when it comes to ratings. With the increase in hours of television for AEW, the women’s division could immediately become a focus of Saturday nights going forward.
Rosa was the only female to be featured in a prominent spot on the Collision poster, besides Julia Hart posed next to the House of Black. Rosa is going to be the top female star on Collision and can make an impact upon her return to television. If AEW wants a great chance to get heat on Rosa for a reign with the gold, they should have her beat Jamie Hayter at All In, immediately turning the fans from Hayter’s home country on Rosa.
AEW has built a star in the 59-0 current TBS Champion, but she seems bound to lose it sooner than later to either Taya Valkyrie or a returning Kris Statlander in a later feud. Once she drops the belt, it would be plausible that AEW books her as a pissed-off formidable force, running through everyone on her way to regaining a prominent spot in the division.
Cargill has been fastly improving in the ring when she faces opponents that aren’t enhancement talent and is now deserving of moving to the main event scene. Cargill can drop her TBS Championship in some sort of roll-up finish, to give that title a new direction, then take over the main event scene on a revenge tour type of run.
Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.
Baker may have said on an episode of AEW All Access that she doesn’t need to hold the AEW Women’s World Championship for another five years, but I don’t buy that for a minute. AEW at some point is going to need a massive babyface champion, and Baker is the most reliable pick for that. Baker has been with AEW since the beginning, making her the most connectable with fans in the women’s division.
Whether she is a babyface or turns heel again, she is the most recognizable building block of AEW. Baker can run with the story that it is time to take her division back, and the division hasn’t been the same since she lost the belt to Thunder Rosa at Saint Patrick’s Day Slam. When Baker was champion, the women’s division was more featured than ever, and AEW will soon get back to having her hold the belt at the top of the division.
