It was previously reported that the first round of AEW’s Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament Japanese side of the bracket recently took place with four huge matches, where we saw Yuka Sakazaki defeat Mei Suruga, Emi Sakura beat Veny, Ryo Mizunami beat Maki Itoh and Aja Kong beat Rin Kadokura. Aja Kong is now set to face Ryo Mizunami in Second Round action, which will air on Monday night.
On the U.S. side of the bracket, Thunder Rosa beat Leyla Hirsch in a First Round Match last Wednesday night on Dynamite, while Riho defeated NWA Women’s World Champion Serena Deeb during last night’s AEW Dynamite episode also in a First Round Match. Thunder Rosa and Riho are not set to face each other in a Second Round Matchup. We will also see Tay Conti take on Nyla Rose and Dr. Britt Baker take on Anna Jay in First Round Matches also on Monday at 7PM ET on AEW’s YouTube channel.
Dave Meltzer then noted that the winner of the Japanese side of the bracket will travel to the United States and face the winner of the United States side of the bracket, which we will see on the March 3 episode of Dynamite. The winner of AEW’s Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament will then take on AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida for her AEW Women’s World Championship at the Revolution PPV.
