Thunder Rosa Vs Nyla Rose Set For AEW Battle Of The Belts

Thunder Rosa & Nyla Rose

It has been announced that Thunder Rosa will defend her AEW Women’s World Championship at AEW Battle of the Belts II.

On the the special St Patrick’s Day Slam edition of AEW Dynamite, Thunder Rosa defeated Britt Baker in a brutal Cage Match to become the AEW Women’s World Champion.

The week after her historic victory, the new champion was due to address the fans and thank them for their support, but before she could get going, she was attacked by Nyla Rose. Since then the animosity between the two women has showed no sign of abating, and it has now been confirmed that they will meet in the ring.

On the April 6th episode of Dynamite, it was announced that the pair will meet at Battle of the Belts II in Dallas, Texas.

The match represents an opportunity for Nyla Rose to regain the AEW Women’s World Championship that she lost back in May 2020.

The first Battle of the Belts show was held in Charlotte, North Carolina on January 8th and was headlined by Sammy Guevara and Dustin Rhodes. On the night it was Guevara who emerged victorious claiming the Interim TNT Championship in the process.

The Spanish God had been due to face then TNT Champion Cody Rhodes at the event, but the American Nightmare had to pull out, later revealing that he was in quarantine, due to a family member testing positive for COVID-19.

Elsewhere on the most recent episode of Dynamite, it was confirmed that Hangman Adam Page will defend his AEW World Championship against Adam Cole on the April 15th edition of Rampage in a Texas Death Match.

Meanwhile, Samoa Joe progressed in the Owen Hart Foundation tournament after seeing off Max Caster in his AEW debut.
