AEW is hitting a Tuesday night for Dynamite on October 10. In doing so, they are running a Title Tuesday gimmick to encourage viewership to tune in.
The first match was booked after results from Rampage. Hikaru Shida prevailed over Ruby Soho with the winner earning a shot at Saraya for the AEW Women’s World Championship on Title Tuesday.
This will be Shida’s chance to win back the title that she lost without being the victim of direct defeat. Saraya won the gold at All In in Wembley Stadium in a four-way by pinning Toni Storm.
In addition to the women’s match, seeds were planted for another title bout. Jay Lethal confronted Eddie Kingston about the ROH World Championship. Lethal dedicated his life for that title to establish its legacy, and he judged Kingston unfit to hold the belt.

Kingston has the challenge of a lifetime ahead at WrestleDream against Katsuyori Shibata. Presuming Kingston prevails on the PPV, Lethal could be up next. Time till tell if that match gets booked for Title Tuesday or before.
If AEW really wants to make a splash for Title Tuesday, then they might pull the trigger on fast-tracking MJF versus Jay White for the AEW World Championship. That should put butts in seats.
