AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida will be in action this week on Dynamite.
AEW President Tony Khan announced on social media that Shida will team up with Kris Statlander to face the team of Nyla Rose and Penelope Ford. All four women in the match are either a champion or ranked in the top five in AEW's official rankings in the women's division. Shida defeated Rose to win the title back at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view event back in May.
