The AEW women's roster has grown steadily since the promotion's inception. Most notably, the roster features the likes of Britt Baker, Kylie Rae and Allie. Nyla Rose, Leva Bates, Brandi Rhodes, Penelope Ford, Sadie Gibbs, Hikaru Shida, Bea Priestley and former WWE superstar Awesome Kong round out the division. The new promotion also featured joshi wrestlers like Riho and Yuka Sakazaki in its previous shows.

The new promotion's next show is All Out in Chicago at the end of August. All Out's current card features a match between Chris Jericho and Hangman Page to become the first AEW Champion. Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley and Cody Rhodes vs Shawn Spears are all confirmed for the August 31 show.

Of the 11 women on the official AEW Women's Roster, only a few have an official win while in the promotion. Britt Baker won the Fatal Fourway match at Double or Nothing, defeating Kylie Rae, Nyla Rose and a debuting Awesome Kong.

Allie has a victory over Leva Bates at Fyter Fest, but lost to Brandi Rhodes at Fight for the Fallen - thanks to Awesome Kong.

Bea Priestley made her AEW debut at Fight for the Fallen, picking up a victory over Britt Baker and Riho. She was teaming with Shoko Nakajima. Nyla Rose also took a loss against Riho in a Triple Threat match at Fyter Fest.

Rhodes confirmed that next Wednesday's Road to All Out episode on YouTube will give more details on the AEW Women's Championship situation. This episode will likely announce the All Out women's match to determine the two number one contenders.
