AEW Considering Hikaru Shida’s Return After Five-Month Absence

One Big Thing

AEW is discussing the potential return of former Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida after a nearly five-month absence from television.

Key Points

  • Shida hasn’t wrestled for AEW since early April, with her last in-ring appearance coming at ROH Supercard of Honor.
  • Fightful Select reports that there have been “creative discussions” for Shida’s potential upcoming return.
  • Shida’s last AEW TV match was on the January 10 Rampage taping, where she defeated Queen Aminata.

Shida’s AEW Accomplishments

  • Shida was AEW’s third Women’s Champion, holding the title for 372 days after defeating Nyla Rose in May 2020.
  • She won the championship again in April 2023, defeating Toni Storm on Dynamite before losing it to Saraya at All In London.
  • Shida’s most recent reign began in October 2023 when she dethroned Saraya, but lost the title to current champion Toni Storm the following month.

Why It Matters

Hikaru Shida’s return could significantly impact the AEW women’s division, as she is a former three-time AEW Women’s Champion and one of the most accomplished female wrestlers in the company. Her absence has been felt, and her potential comeback could shake up the title picture and provide fresh matchups for the current roster.
