Thunder Rosa and AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker met in the ring to sign the contract for their title match at AEW Revolution. During the signing, Baker harkened back to their now iconic AEW Lights Out match, and brought up the fact that even though Thunder Rosa won, it was Baker that everyone talked about, and Baker who ended up with all of the glory. According to Baker, that made Thunder Rosa “bitter,” and that regardless of what happens at Revolution, she will never be Baker, nor will she ever be as big as the champion.
As Baker signed the contract, Rosa immediately dove across the table at the champion, leading to a massive brawl that ended after Mercedes Martinez arrived to help Thunder Rosa. Martinez grabbed Jamie Hayter (who was in the ring to help Baker) and put her through a table.
Thunder Rosa def. Mercedes Martinez via disqualification.
Rosa starts off on an offensive assault. The brawl goes to the outside and Rosa hits a snap suplex on Mercedes. Mercedes finally turns the tide with aspinebuster before heading to picture-in-picture.
Back from break, Mercedes hits an avalance DVD on Rosa. Rosa hits a modified powerslam and it causes Mercedes to roll out of the ring. She hits Rosa with a lead pipe from underneath the ring. The ref sees it and calls for the bell, making a rare DQ finish.
Backstage Mercedes is confronted by Britt Baker who reveals it was her who had Martinez take Rosa out in such a manner. Now Baker wants her to finish the job or she’ll make sure Mercedes’ time in AEW is shorter than her last run (meaning WWE).
