AEW Women's World Champion Hikaru Shida put her title on the line against NWA Women's World Champion Thunder Rose at the All Out pay-per-view.
Notes written in real-time during the match:
Very intense and fast-paced action to start things off for this match. After a few minutes, Shida set up a chair at ringside to use as a launchpad but Thunder Rosa charged and hit Shida with a running dropkick. Rosa then did a surfboard move over the ring post and then a running kick to the head. Rosa also got Shida in a hanging pendulum submission and then she tried the stretch muffler submission but Shida fought out of it. Rosa dominated the match for several minutes.
Shida finally started to get some offense when she hit a jumping knee strike, a suplex and a running kick. Late in the match, Shida tried to suplex Rosa to the outside but Rosa countered into a Death Valley Driver onto the apron. Moments later, Shida turned things around with a suplex and then a Meteora (double knees) onto Rosa outside of the ring on the ramp that leads to the ring.
Very late in the match, Shida hit a Falcon Arrow but Rosa kicked out at 1. Shida tried the move again but Rosa countered into a pin attempt. Shida then tried to lock in the stretch muffler submission but Rosa got to the bottom rope. Rose fought back with strikes to the face and the backstabber.
Shida retained the title after hitting a backbreaker and running knee to the face. Very good match.
