The Thunder Rosa vs Riho match part of the AEW Women’s Title
Eliminator tournament will air on February 28 free on
Bleacher Report. The announcement was made by AEW President
Tony Khan yesterday.
“This will be free worldwide for all fans on Bleacher
Report, not BR Live for this show, back on BR Live
domestic/FITE a week later for Revolution,” Khan wrote.
“It’s huge to get exposure on Bleacher Report available to
millions of fans worldwide + a reminder Revolution is Sunday
3/7, not on Saturday.”
Khan noted that BR has 9.4 million subs on Twitter and an
additional 14.8 million Instagram followers so for them it’s
a huge opportunity to expose the AEW product to them, even
though AEW already airs pay-per-views on B/R Live and aired
an awards show on the platform a few weeks ago.
Tay Conti vs Nyla Rose and Britt Baker vs Anna Jay are the
other first-round matches remaining from the U.S. side of
the bracket. The Japanese side first round has been
completed and the quarter final matches have been set
already with Yuka Sakazaki vs Emi Sakura and Ryo Mizunami vs
The winner of the whole tournament will face Hikaru Shida at
Revolution on March 7.
