All Elite Wrestling was forced to make changes to a top match that was previously announced for next week’s episode of Dynamite.
Originally, Kris Statlander was slated to challenge AEW Women’s Champion Riho for the strap on next week’s show. However, she’s been pulled from the contest due to prior commitments.
Thus, Riho will defend her title against Nyla Rose, Britt Baker, and Hikaru Shida in a Fatal 4-Way Match. Statlander will then face the winner of this championship bout on the January 8th show.
All Elite Wrestling issued the following:
“Due to prior commitments, Kris Statlander will not be in Jacksonville to face Riho for the #AEW Women’s World Championship on Wed, Jan 1st. Riho will still defend her championship in a 4 way match w/ Nyla Rose, Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida.
However, we are excited to announce that Kris Statlander will face the winner at the #AEW Anniversary edition of Dynamite Wednesday, Jan 8th in Southaven, MS. Tickets for both shows can be found at AEWTIX.com.”
