Hikaru Shida

Hikaru Shida started her pro wrestling career in 2008 when she joined the Ice Ribbon promotion. This is after she played a role in a film titled Three Count, which is set in a world of professional wrestling.

Hikaru Shida remained with Ice Ribbon until 2014, where she became a one time ICE×60 Champion as well as a four-time International Ribbon Tag Team Champion.

Shida also captured the Wave Single Title, the Oz Academy Tag Team Title, and the Sendai Girls World Tag Team Titles prior to working as a freelancer and with the Makai company, then ultimately signing with AEW on April 9th, 2019.

Shida made her debut at Double Or Nothing of the same year. She then became the AEW Women’s World Champion at the Double Or Nothing PPV one year later.


Riho made her professional wrestling debut at her Ice Ribbon promotion in May 2006 at the age of nine and was trained by Emi Sakura. She would remain in Ice Ribbon for six years, becoming the first-ever Triple Crown Champion, while also capturing the ICE×60 Title, the International Ribbon Tag Team Title and the Triangle Ribbon Title.

Riho left the Ice Ribbon promotion in September 2012 to join the Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling promotion, which was a promotion founded by Emi Sakura. In May 2019, Riho made AEW appearances.
