AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament
Riho vs. Serena Deeb
Commentary noting that Deeb tweaked her knee recently, and Riho is already targeting it in the early stages of the match.
As the bell sounds to kick off the match, the fans begin chanting “Welcome Back! Welcome Back!” at Riho. She soaks it in and then she and Deeb circle each other and lock up. The commentators put over both ladies as the two trade holds and control standing and in the clinch before the bout is taken down to the mat for some amateur style ground wrestling and submission-based grappling, with each lady getting holds and the other reversing out of it.
Deeb and Riho continue to trade turns in the lead, with neither establishing any lengthy run in control of the action. As Deeb starts to recover from her leg being worked over by the former AEW Women’s Champion, she takes back over the offense and sends Riho out to the floor. We head to a picture-in-picture commercial break on that note.
During the picture-in-picture commercial break, we see Deeb having her leg checked on by a ringside doctor before going out to the floor to go back to work on Riho. She brings her back in the ring and continues to dominate the action now as we see our first prolonged offensive run of dominance from someone in this match now.
We return from the break and we see Deeb has Riho on the mat locked in a rear-chin-lock as the commentators inform us about the doctor checking on Deeb during the break. They claim that Deeb insisted to the doctor that she’s able to continue, which she appears to be proving emphatically at this point.
Finally, Riho starts to shift the momentum back in her favor as she fights her way back into the bout. She blasts Deeb with a big elbow strike and some follow-up forearm shots on the NWA Women’s Champion in the corner, as the fans chant along with each shot. Deeb ends up turning Riho into the corner and she does the same to her. Riho hits a head-scissors moments later and blasts Deeb with a running knee to the grill in the corner for a near fall.
Riho looks for a northern lights suplex, however Deeb reverses into a front chancery submission standing, which Riho ends up escaping. She ends to the top-rope and dives but is caught by Deeb, who hits a veteran counter, as Jim Ross points out on commentary. She goes to work on Riho’s leg now, as the ring announcer informs us of the amount of time that has transpired in this time-limit tourney bout.
The fans and the commentators are getting super into this match now, as the fans are making a lot of noise and chants and the commentators are calling this one of the best women’s matches in recent memory. Riho starts making another comeback after Deeb settled into the offensive driver’s seat again. The former first-ever AEW Women’s World Champion fires up on offense with a vengeance now, as she picks up the pace and turns it on the NWA Women’s Champion looking to finish her off.
Riho climbs to the top-rope as J.R. calls her a fearless little warrior. She hits a diving cross-bow splash for a near fall, however Deeb survives and then rolls out to the floor to try and regroup. Riho, however, goes out after her. She grabs her by the hair and throws her back into the ring. She follows in after her, however, Deeb took advantage of her coming in and blasted her with a big shot. She grounds Riho and looks to step over with a finishing submission hold. We end up seeing a pin attempt as a reversal out of it.
AEW’s first-ever women’s champ finally hits the northern lights suplex she has attempted multiple times in this match, bridging for a pin afterwards, however Deeb kicks out. Deeb looks for her finisher moments later, however Riho reverses into a pin attempt. Deeb rolls out of it, but RIho reverses into another one and this time she gets the pin fall victory. The fans give this match a standing ovation and immediately break out into a “This Is Awesome” chant, which J.R. points out on commentary in case the viewers at home can’t hear it due to Riho’s theme music playing.
Winner and ADVANCING in the AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament: Riho

Orange Cassidy vs. Luther
We return from the break to see Luther wrapping up his ring entrance, with fellow Chaos Project member Serpentico by his side. The bell sounds and we’re immediately off to an emphatic start, as Chuck Taylor is knocked off the ring apron and Luther immnediately goes to work on Cassidy.
Luther dominates Cassidy early on, as Serpentico hits a dive from the ring to the floor on Chuck. Meanwhile, Luther is still controlling the action in the ring until finally, Cassidy hits a sunset flip power-bomb on Luther from the ring apron to the floor. Ouch.
We see Serpentico in the ring creeping around waiting for Cassidy to come back in, however Chuck Taylor has recovered and is behind Serpentico and he takes him out before anything happens.
Finally, Cassidy gets Luther up and back in the ring, where the ref also joins them, all three unaware of what just transpired between Chuck and Serpentico. Regardless, Cassidy waits for Luther to get up and then blasts him with the Orange Punch for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Orange Cassidy

As he continues talking trash about how Sting needs his bat to be a tough guy, “The Icon” drops his bat and starts taking his big robe off.

At first things go his way, but eventually he is hoisted up with ease by Brian Cage, who plants him down on the mat with his finisher.

Mike finally makes the tag to Matt Sydal, who quickly turns the tables and shifts the momentum into the favor of the Sydal’s. Mike heads back into the ring and the two Sydal’s hit some double-team action until FTR sneaks in a blind tag and in the confusion, manage to take back control of the offensive lead in the match, just as J.R. leads us into a mid-match, picture-in-picture commercial break.
