AEW has added a second women’s match to the card of All Out. Alongside the 21-Woman Casino Battle Royale, there will be a Joshi match between Hikaru Shida and Riho.

Shida and Riho have been in the ring together once before in a 6-Woman tag match at Double or Nothing when they teamed with Ryo Mizunami against the team of Yuka Sakazaki, Aja Kong and Emi Sakura.
Since then, Riho has been appeared at every AEW PPV since, teaming with Britt Baker at Fight for the Fallen and fighting Nyla Rose and Yuka Sakazaki at Fyter Fest.
The match will be a showcase match so there is no news on whether this match will have any implication on the Women’s World title scene.
