Riho Announced For AEW Women's Casino Battle Royale
20 competitors are now confirmed for the bout
Another competitor has been announced for AEW’s Women’s Casino Battle Royale at All Out, as inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion Riho will be competing in the match.
Riho joins Anna Jay, Kiera Hogan, Jade Cargill, Abadon, KiLynn King, Leyla Hirsch, Nyla Rose, Julia Hart, Big Swole, The Bunny, Red Velvet, Thunder Rosa, Tay Conti, Penelope Ford, Diamante, Rebel, Jami Hayter, Emi Sakura, and Hikaru Shida as confirmed entrants, with the 21st space being the ‘joker’ wildcard entrant, with fan speculation rife online as to who could fill the spot.
The winner of the match will receive a shot at the AEW Women’s World Championship, which is likely to be either Britt Baker or Krist Statlander, with the two battling for Baker’s title on the PPV.
Riho has only wrestled a handful of matches for AEW in 2021, after spending most of the COVID-19 pandemic wrestling for Stardom in Japan. Since dropping the title to Nyla Rose in February 2020, Riho has never received a rematch for the belt.
