AEW Dynamite returned to Daily's Place for their first live show in over a month on Wednesday, and in addition to a return to live programming, it was also the first time more than a third of the roster was available to compete. After the opening match between Cody Rhodes and Joey Janella, AEW showed a video package featuring the women's division, with a focus on Britt Baker, who has come into her own as a star in the past month. But Britt Baker isn't the champion. That's Nyla Rose, and when Rose came out for a match that wasn't advertised before tonight, she was none-too-pleased with the video.
"You think you're cute," she told Tony Schiavone, who was at the top of the ramp to interview her. "You think you're funny playing that little video package. Who's the most dominant person? Tony Schiavone, let me turn that back on you. Who do you think that is? AHHH. Wrong! It's me!"
Rose then walked down to the ring for her squash match against Kenzie Page, an 18-year-old wrestler making her AEW review. Britt Baker watched from the crowd as Rose made quick work of Page. If Ryan Satin was watching this match, he had no reason to complain that the enhancement talent got in too much offense. The most that Page got in was an attempted sunset flip that Rose powered out of and a punch to the face that Rose completely no-sold.

Within a few minutes, Rose hit her senton from the top and would have scored an easy pinfall, but she picked Page up for a trio of powerbombs instead. That got the pinfall, and Rose walked away with her statement made: the most dominant woman in AEW, and the woman to beat, is the champ herself. Baker, Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander, and Penelope Ford could do nothing but watch from the crowd.
