Toni Storm is off to a good start as interim AEW Women’s World Champion.
During the September 7 edition of AEW Dynamite, Toni Storm went one-on-one with Penelope Ford in an eliminator match. If Ford won the bout, she would have earned a title match. However, that was not the case as Storm was victorious after nearly six minutes.
It’s worth noting that this bout took place toward the end of the first hour, which has become a recent trend after months of women’s matches being booked for the 9:30 pm ET slot.
Tay Melo and Anna Jay made cameos during a backstage interview with Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara. Other than that, no other women directly appeared on the broadcast besides a clip from Road To where Jamie Hayter refused to speak to Britt Baker following their interactions in the four-way at All Out.
This Friday’s Rampage will feature Serena Deeb going one-on-one with Madison Rayne in what appears to be a first-time ever match. As of this writing, no women’s matches have been confirmed for the following Dynamite.
