Last night on AEW Dynamite, sources confirmed that the AEW Women’s Championship is on the line at Saturday Night Fight Night’s annual Battle Of The Belts.
Battle Of The Belts is an annual event for AEW, and this year, sees it once again takes place on a special Saturday Night Fight Night special on TNT.
AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa will defend her title against Team D.M.D’s Jamie Hayter after what transpired on Dynamite.
Dynamite saw Thunderstorm, the team of Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm, take on Dr Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter in tag team action.
The match was a back and forth contest from start to finish, with both teams showing great chemistry. However, the difference came when a hip attack from Toni Storm ended up hitting Thunder Rosa instead of Britt Baker, allowing Hayter to take advantage and get the win over Toni Storm.
Hayter picking up the win granted her a long-awaited AEW Women’s Championship match.
Rosa and Baker have had one of the fiercest rivalries in AEW, with the two even winning matches of the year in the past. Thunder captured the AEW Women’s Championship from Baker at St. Patrick’s Day Slam and has been champion ever since reigning for over 100 days.
However, Hayter will be looking to utilise the momentum from Dynamite and implement this into Saturday to destroy the reign of Rosa and follow in the footsteps of her partner Baker and hold the AEW Women’s Championship and bring gold back to Team D.M.D.
You can watch AEW Battle Of The Belts III internationally on FITE TV.
