On the latest episode of AEW Rampage, Riho earned an AEW Women’s World Championship shot after defeating current champion Britt Baker.
The inaugural AEW Women’s Champion received the match against Baker after it was revealed she was not officially eliminated from the Casino Battle Royal at All Out in September. Tony Schiavone informed a livid Baker she would face the Joshi superstar during a segment on the November 24th episode of Dynamite.
After exchanging a series of stiff strikes and hard-hitting moves, Riho countered a Fisherman’s Neckbreaker for a surprise roll-up victory much to Baker’s dismay.
Elsewhere on the show, Adam Cole and Bobby Fish overcame Orange Cassidy and Wheeler Uta while Eddie Kingston saw off Daniel Garcia.
Over on SmackDown, Sami Zayn earned himself a shot at Universal Champion Roman Reigns while it was announced that Brock Lesnar will be heading back to the blue brand on December 3rd.
