Wrestling Inc reported that following the debut of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan declined talk of the possibility of Kenny Omega vs Nyla Rose. Omega came to the rescue of Riho after she defeated Nyla Rose to become AEW Women’s Champion.
Khan had this to say when asked if Kenny Omega vs Nyla Rose will happen:
“That was not what that was. It wasn’t supposed to be set up like that. It was more like a big moment for his protege Riho. Kenny’s very involved in the women’s division and then for that to happen, that wasn’t what was supposed to happen. That’s why he was going in and clearing it up.”
The AEW President also said the following when asked if Nyla Rose has to prove herself once again to get another title match:
“Wins and losses definitely will come into effect (for future title opportunities). At the Women’s Casino Battle Royale, she eliminated 11 contestants. Nyla’s performance was outstanding. I thought it was a star-making performance, and that’s how she got this opportunity (to face Riho). Even though Nyla has not officially won a singles match, I think Nyla is going to have to win some matches now, or win next year’s Casino Battle Royale to get another shot.”
