United States winner vs. Japan winner
Both sides of the Women’s Eliminator Tournament bracket offer a lot of options for matches based on pre-existing history between the competitors. The United States side could see a Riho vs. Nyla Rose rematch in the final of that side of the tournament; TayJay teammates Anna Jay and Tay Conti could be forced to face off in the semi-final; Thunder Rosa may get a chance to avenge her loss to Britt Baker in the United States final.
The Japan bracket is equally as interesting. Joshi stalwarts Emi Sakura and Yuka Sakazaki could be set for a titanic semi-final clash. Meanwhile, the legendary Aja Kong and young Maki Itoh could give the tournament a classic battle of youth vs. experience. Should Itoh progress all the way to the final she may be given an opportunity to avenge her International Princess Championship loss against Thunder Rosa. The possibilities are too numerous to cover in full.
Thunder Rosa vs. Leyla Hirsch kicked off the tournament on the most recent edition of Dynamite. You can find out the result of the match here.
