AEW will start out 2020 with a big show from Jacksonville, but they needed to change up one plan.
Riho will no longer defend the AEW Women’s World Title against Kris Statlander. Instead, she will defend her title in a fatal four-way match. Tony Khan has now revealed that Statlander will still get her title shot.
Rather than force Kris to choose between her title shot or keeping her word on a commitment she made before signing here, we’re allowing her to do both. The champion Riho will defend vs. #2 Britt/#3 Shida/#4 Nyla in a 4 way title match. The winner defends vs. #1 Kris on January 8
We’ll have to wait and see who is AEW Women’s World Champion on January 8th. All Elite Wrestling’s resident alien Kris Statlander is still getting her title shot.
