Color “The Cleaner” impressed with the performances by Britt Baker and Riho on Saturday night’s first-ever AEW Battle of the Belts special event.
Soon after the inaugural Battle of the Belts show went off-the-air on TNT, the former AEW World Champion and leader of The Elite took to social media to offer high praise for the two women involved in the AEW Women’s Championship main event of the evening, while still being careful not to post any “spoilers” for those who may not have seen the show yet.
“A great AEW main event tonight,” wrote Omega via social media after the show. “Riho‘s combination of technique, heart, and natural ability are unparalleled. Can she dethrone the DMD megastar Britt Baker?(No spoilers).”
From there, he went on to comment on being excited for the latest in-ring showdown between Hikaru Shida and Serena Deeb, which was also featured on Saturday night’s show with a vignette airing to promote their match on this coming Wednesday night’s edition of AEW Dynamite on TBS.
“Excited now for the next barn burner between Serena Deeb and Hikaru Shida in their ongoing feud,” he added.
