AEW has just announced that Nyla Rose will defend her newly won title against the number one contender Kris Statlander. This match will take place at their upcoming Revolution pay-per-view on Feb. 29.
Since winning the title two weeks ago from Riho, Rose has had a target on her back. The entire women’s locker room has had their eyes set on taking on The Native Beast. Statlander is up first although she is listed as number two on the power rankings behind Riho according to AEW’s official website at the time of this writing.
Statlander has been piling up wins as of last week when she defeated Diamante on AEW Dark and Shanna on Dynamite.
Do you think that Statlander may cause Rose’s first title reign to end quickly or is it too soon for Rose to drop the title? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
