AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida has revealed her goals for 2021.

Taking to Twitter, the Japanese marvel has stated that her aims include a promo in the ring, an appearance on US media, to restart MAKAI, make NEO IZANAGI bigger and (of course) meet British actor, Benedict Cumberbatch.

Since winning the AEW Women’s World Championship at Double Or Nothing on May 23, 2020, she has gone on to record 15 wins on the bounce as well as 4 title defences including the rematch with Nyla Rose at Full Gear.

Hikaru has been working on her English, and has already cut a few backstage promos for AEW. One goal is to get a microphone in an AEW ring by the end of 2021.

There’s also an ambition to restart MAKAI, which is a YouTube promotion that combines music, theater, and wrestling in which Shida also stars in the NEO IZANAGI series. After 5 successful episodes, she would like to make the series even bigger in 2021.

The final goal for 2021 is for Hikaru to see Benedict Cumberbatch. The English actor will be hard to tie down with him currently on set filming, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, but here’s hoping Hikaru Shida can reach all of her goals before 2021 ends.
