The AEW Women’s World championship for All Out has been revealed!
On Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite, the first match for All Out was officially announced. Right after Toni Storm defeated KILynn King in a singles match, it was announced through a match graphic that she would take on tag team partner, Thunder Rosa for the AEW Women’s World championship.

During a backstage segment on the August 10 episode of Dynamite, it was revealed that Kris Statlander had to relinquish her spot as number one contender due to a torn ACL injury, making Storm the default title contender.
Back in June, Rosa defeated Storm to retain AEW Women’s World title at Forbidden Door, being the only non-crossover match on the main card. Shortly after, Rosa and Storm formed a partnership named Thunderstorm, starting a short feud with Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter. Though the two have remained friendly, a segment between Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm on the August 10th Dynamite indicated that there might be trouble for the tag team partners if they were to come to blows, and it seems we’re going to see if that transpires.
AEW All Out is scheduled to take place on September 4 at the Now Arena in Chicago, Illinois. Also announced for the show are the finals of the Trios championship tournament which started on Wednesday with the Young Bucks and a returning Kenny Omega defeating Andrade El Idolo, Rush and Dragon Lee.
