During the All Out pay-per-view, an Interim AEW Women's World Champion needed to be crowned. The lineal champion, Thunder Rosa, had to bow out of the show due to an injury.
The Interim Championship was decided in a four-way match. The winner was Toni Storm, who was initially scheduled to face (and defeat) Rosa at the show.
The new interim AEW Women's World Champion took to the podium at the now infamous media scrum following the show. During her portion, she seemed to indicate some skepticism surrounding Rosa's injury.
“It’s not ideal, but Thunder Rosa says she’s injured. Okay. When she says she’s not injured, she can come back and lose to me. That’ll be the end of that. Yeah, that’ll be that,” Storm said.
Furthermore, she commented on her on-screen alliance with the lineal champion.
“It’s kind of awkward because while this has been all going on, me and Thunder have formed kind of a friendship and we’ve formed quite a nice team, but I guess I want her to know that I’m not just going to sit in her corner and cheer for her and be her little friend. I came here to win championships. I didn’t come here to make friends. I’ll be cool and civil, but when she comes back, I’m going to whoop her ass," she said.
