AEW is using pro wrestlers from all around the world and sometimes that means they will need to work around commitments with other companies.
All Out’s Buy In kickoff show will include a Casino Battle Royale Match. The winner of that all-female battle royal match will be inserted in a future AEW Women’s Title match. However, at least four top females won’t be able to attend.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Aja Kong, Yuki Sakazaki, Shoko Nakajima and Bea Priestley are all booked for dates that make it impossible for them to make August 31st’s All Out event. Therefore, AEW will need to figure out some more competitors for this match.
Some fans might be disappointed to hear this because all four of those women could be in the running for an AEW Women’s Title shot eventually. It won’t be happening to decide the first-ever champion though because they already have previous commitments overseas.
