Thunder Rosa has been pretty quiet on AEW television in recent weeks. The AEW Women’s World Champion has been biding her time and awaiting her next challenger. Fans are hoping a strong feud will help bolster Rosa’s championship run after winning the title from Britt Baker in a cage match.
On last night’s Dynamite, Serena Deeb took on Hikaru Shida in a Philadelphia Street Fight. Deeb was victorious and will move up in the AEW rankings. All signs point to Serena moving into the number one contender’s spot.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said Serena Deeb’s big win will likely put her into a women’s championship match with Thunder Rosa. It could happen before Memorial Day weekend, but AEW will most likely save the bout for the Double or Nothing pay-per-view at that time. That would make two huge title matches for what is shaping up to be a massive card.
“Afterwards, they showed Thunder Rosa, so they basically gave away that… Because the winner of this match was going to get the pay-per-view… The next title match. I don’t know that it’s going to be on the pay-per-view, but I think the odds are that it would be. I don’t see them doing a championship match before. But, anyway, there’s probably going to be a Thunder Rosa championship defense against Serena Deeb.”
AEW’s much-criticized women’s division needs some momentum. The company has built Serena Deeb as a very dangerous opponent through her feud with Shida. It only seems natural that she gets the next shot.
We will have to wait and see how AEW develops the title bout between Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb. Deeb has been having excellent matches lately, and Rosa is certainly capable of the same. Double or Nothing seems like the perfect time for AEW to showcase their women’s division on a big stage.
