AEW and Nyla Rose

History is being made.

When All Elite Wrestling, also known as AEW, made the company's official announcement on January 1st, 2019, the wrestling world came loose. Since its inception, Cody, the Young Bucks, and Tony Khan, the people responsible for the creation of AEW, promised that the company would provide thrilling action, amazing wrestling experiences, and groundbreaking superstars that would change the landscape of professional wrestling forever.

One such superstar is Nyla Rose, who was signed by AEW in February 2019. Nyla Rose is a first nations person with Oneida heritage, and she is the first openly transgender woman in history to sign with a major American professional wrestling promotion.

The Road for Gold

Nyla Rose made her in-ring debut with AEW at their inaugural event, Double or Nothing, on May 25th, 2019. She competed against Dr. Britt Baker, DMD (A real and practicing dentist), Kylie Rae, and Awesome Kong in a fatal four-way match, and although Nyla did not win, she impressed the crowd and critics everywhere with her stellar performance.

Nyla Rose vs Riho vs Yuka Sakazaki

At the next AEW event on June 29th, Fyter Fest, Nyla Rose faced Riho and Yuka Sakazaki, two famous joshi pro wrestlers from Japan, in a triple-threat match. Nyla Rose played the role of the unstoppable force while Riho and Yuka Sakazaki tried to figure out how to eliminate Nyla from the picture so each of them had a better chance of winning. At the match's conclusion, Nyla became enraged after she was shockingly pinned by Riho out of nowhere as part of a stellar bout, and she went on to attack the two joshi wrestlers after the match's conclusion, establishing herself as a heel in the women's division of AEW.

On August 31st, AEW had their last major pay-per-view before the television series launch on TNT, and that event was ALL OUT, a follow-up to 2018's ALL IN. At ALL OUT, Nyla Rose participated in a 21-woman Casino Battle Royale, AEW's equivalent to WWE's Royal Rumble. Nyla was in the first group of five competitors the start the match, and she outlasted all the other twenty women to not only secure the win but also a chance to become the inaugural AEW Women's Champion.

Her opponent for the championship match is none other than the woman who surprisingly pinned her at Fyter Fest, Riho. Since the two already have some history, it sets up for an exciting match between two workers who can tell a great story. Nyla Rose is out to prove herself, and she clearly has Riho in her sight for revenge.

A Match for the History Books

All Elite Wrestling will make its television debut October 2nd on TNT, which will be the first time TNT has hosted a wrestling show since WCW, World Championship Wrestling, were bought out by Vince McMahon and WWE in late-2000.

Not only is the television debut history-making, but the main event will be the inaugural women's championship match to crown the first-ever AEW Women's Champion.

This is especially history-making, because Nyla Rose will become the first ever openly transgender woman to participate in a major title match for a major American professional wrestling promotion. Win or lose, Nyla is making history, and her participation in this championship match only shows that AEW really does care about progression and making the wrestling world a better place for everyone.

Please tune in on October 2nd, 2019 to witness history and see AEW change wrestling forever.

How do you feel about Nyla Rose being in the inaugural AEW women's title match?
