AEW Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament match broadcast on Bleacher Report | TBEN


AEW President Tony Khan has announced that the quarter-final match of the AEW Women’s World Title Elimination Tournament between Thunder Rosa and Riho will be streamed for free on Bleacher Report on Sunday, February 28.

Khan made the announcement on his Twitter account, writing the following:

“The #AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament USA semi-final featuring former AEW Women’s World Champion Riho against former NWA Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa is shown on Bleacher Report February 28 on a special free Sunday, one week before the PPV revolution!

This is done to take the AEW Revolution pay-per-view event on March 7, which will be broadcast on BR Live, a step further. Khan continued with other tweets in which he mentioned that he was pushing for a Sunday show on the platform to prepare fans, as AEW had never had a PPV event on Sunday.
