At AEW Double or Nothing, Hikaru Shida will defend the AEW World Women’s Championship against Double or Nothing against Britt Baker. Tonight, she gets a tune up match as she takes on the assistant of Baker, Reba! Shida took to Twitter ahead of this match to state the following, “Don’t miss it on this Wednesday. It’s gonna be short and one-sided.” so we know the champion will be walking to the ring with confidence tonight.
Hikaru Shida Didn’t Lie, But Britt Baker Knew This
As this one started, Reba would play up her leg injury to try and catch Shida off guard, only to take a forearm shot and be taken down. Shida grabbed a doctor’s glove and teased using the Lockjaw on Reba. Baker did her best to stop this, and grabbed the AEW World Women’s Championship.
During the referee’s fight to get the belt away from Baker, Reba would crack Shida on the spine with her crutch. A very slow tossing version of the Falcon Arrow would follow, before Reba took a knee breaker. Shida applied a version of the Stretch Muffler, and Reba tapped out as Baker got into the ring.
This was barely even a match, and more just a way to force a brawl afterwards. Shida did show a new submission in the Stretch Muffler however, and teasing the Lockjaw was a nice touch. Match Rating: N/A
As soon as Reba tapped out and Shida got the win, Baker would hit from behind and beat Shida down. She once again grabbed the AEW World Women’s Championship, and made sure Shida kissed it goodbye as she nailed a curbstomp onto the title belt. If Shida needs dental work, Baker can fix her up for a fee.
Baker claims that Shida is the reason that she is the way she is now. Their last match broke her nose, and showed her that she needed to toughen up. Now, she’s better than she’s never been and has her biggest match at Double or Nothing.
