Tony Khan brought many stars from Japan to his All Elite Wrestling. Joshi wrestlers such as Riho, Hikrau Shida and Yuka Sakazaki travelled all the way from the land of the rising sun to the States.

Speaking of Riho, the puroresu star will be making her return to AEW very soon. Riho hasn’t been seen on AEW TV ever since she suffered a broken collar bone during a match with Dr. Britt Baker.

Riho confirmed in her blog that she’s fully healed from her injury that put her out of actions for months and that she’ll be making her return to the United States for AEW soon.

It was previously reported that AEW is looking to bring back Yuka Sakazaki on TV. Yuka Sakazaki competed during AEW’s inaugural Double or Nothing event for a six-person tag team match.

Riho, on the other hand, is the first-ever holder of AEW Women’s Championship. Riho defeated Nyla Rose on the premiere episode of Dynamite to become the inaugural champion.
