All Elite Wrestling will still showcase a women’s title match on its New Year’s episode of AEW Dynamite in Jacksonville next week, but it will not go off as originally announced.
AEW previously promoted a one-on-one title defense for women’s champ Riho against Kris Statlander. However, plans have changed. Instead, AEW announced that Riho will defend her title in a fatal 4-way against Britt Baker, Hikaru Shida and Nyla Rose.
Due to prior commitments, Kris Statlander will not be in Jacksonville to face Riho for the #AEW Women’s World Championship on Wed, Jan 1st.— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) December 27, 2019

In addition, AEW is promoting more from The Inner Circle’s pursuit of Jon Moxley. AEW World Champion Chris Jericho asked Moxley to join the faction previously on Dynamite. Recent advertisements from AEW have stated Le Champion will try to sweeten the pot in an attempt to bring Moxley into the fold.
