Backstage Note On Why Maki Itoh Was Not Advertised For AEW Revolution


As seen during Sunday’s AEW Revolution pay-per-view event, Tokyo Joshi star Maki Itoh was the replacement partner for Reba/Rebel, who was “injured” by Nyla Rose on Dynamite, as she teamed with Dr. Britt Baker to defeat Riho and Thunder Rosa in a tag-team match.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Itoh had competed in TJPW’s Princess Max Heart Tournament Finals before making her trip from Japan to the United States for Revolution. Due to the short timing, any type of flight delay would’ve halted any appearance by Itoh. Therefore, AEW made the call by saying Britt would have a “mystery partner”, just in case Itoh was unable to make the show in time.
