AEW made a couple big announcements during their Beach Break special. One big piece of news pertained to the upcoming Women’s Eliminator Tournament. The winner of that tournament will get a shot at AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida, and she wanted to get a closer look at the action.
Hikaru Shida dropped a very interesting photo recently. She is now in Japan and waiting for the Women’s Eliminator Tournament to begin.
I’m in Japan now!!!! Of course it’s for AEW women’s tournament!
The AEW Women’s Eliminator Tournament will see a lot of intense action, and half of the matches will take place in Japan. It is unclear how AEW will air those matches from Japan, or how they will record them. It is the best way to feature Joshi talent in the company when the pandemic removed so many possibilities to grow their women’s division.
