Hikaru Shida Retains Her AEW Women's World Championship at Fyter Fest

Hikaru Shida successfully retained her AEW Women's World Championship on Wednesday night during AEW Fyter Fest, defeating Penelope Ford with a running knee square in the jaw. The start of the match saw Ford's fiance Kip Sabian get tossed out by referee Aubrey Edwards, though he ran off with Shida's Kendo Stick as he headed to the back.

Later in the match Sabian ran back out to try an nail Shida with the stick. She ducked, smacked the stick out of her hands and walloped him with it instead.

After two Running Knee strikes and a Flacon Arrow, Shida was only able to produce a two count. A third knee sealed the deal
