Update On Riho’s Injury And How Long She’ll Be Out Of Action

Riho, who is the first-ever AEW Women’s World Champion, took to her Twitter this past week and posted a photo of her right arm in a sling, with the caption, “I’m taking a rest a little,” but there was no mention of what her injury actually was. Riho then provided an update on her injury and said that she flew back home to Japan and she has a broken collarbone, but she is currently undergoing treatment to repair her damaged collarbone.

Dave Meltzer reported on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that Riho suffered the injury during the company’s Battle Of The Belts special event when she challenged Britt Baker for the AEW Women’s World Title, but it is unknown in what instance Riho actually got injured and how she got injured. Dave Meltzer also noted that the injury happened very early in the match, but the first-ever AEW Women’s World Champion never complained about the injury and she even finished the match. Meltzer then noted that due to the injury Riho is expected to be out of action for at least three months.

During the premiere episode of AEW Dynamite in October of 2019, Riho became the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion when she defeated Nyla Rose. Riho held the AEW Women’s World Title for 133 days before losing it to Nyla Rose in February of 2020.

Riho last competed for AEW at the Battle of the Belts special on January 8th, where she came up short against AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. in an AEW Women’s World Title Match. Prior to the AEW Women’s World Title Match, Riho was competing on AEW programming on a regular basis as she wrestled in over 10 matches from November to January, with her last AEW television match taking place on the January 7th episode of Rampage, when she teamed with Ruby Soho to defeat the AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker and her partner Jamie Hayter.
