Miyu Yamashita Beats Thunder Rosa, Earns AEW Women’s Title Shot At TJPW Summer Sun Princess

One of Thunder Rosa‘s next challengers for the AEW Women’s World Championship may not be a full member of the company’s roster.

On July 9, Miyu Yamashita faced the champion at TJPW Summer Sun Princess and defeated her. Prior to the contest, Rosa made it clear that she would give Yamashita a shot at the title if she won the match. In the end, Yamashita scored the win by countering an inside cradle.

With Yamashita winning, Rosa stuck to her deal, shaking hands with Yamashita and agreeing to a future AEW Women’s Title bout.

In a post-match press conference, Rosa emphasized that Yamashita will be able to challenge for the AEW Women’s World Championship when she comes to the United States. She noted that Yamashita knows her schedule, so she’s welcome to take her shot at the gold.

Yamashita wrestled in an AEW ring on the June 6 episode of AEW Dark: Elevation; Nyla Rose and Serena Deeb defeated her Skye Blue. In recent months, she has also competed for DPW and Prestige.
