Hikaru Shida is back.
On the March 4 episode of AEW Rampage, the former AEW Women’s World Champion attacked her rival, Serena Deeb after the latter won the latest of her five-minute challenges. Shida brutally attacked Deeb and blasted her knee with a kendo stick.
“The Professor” managed to escape, as security officials held Shida back; the former champion then declared that she’s back.

Shida hasn’t wrestled on AEW television since the January 12 episode of AEW Dynamite, where she lost to Deeb after “The Professor” attacked her before the bout. Shida then returned to Japan due to her involvement in MAKAI GENESIS “ReBOOT”.
