Yet another Stardom talent could be making their AEW/ROH debut soon per a new report.

On August 19th, the 2300 Arena will play host to the second instalment of the All Star Jr Festival, with the likes of NJPW’s Hiromu Takahashi & El Desperado, AEW’s Nick Wayne, and IMPACT’s Speedball Mike Bailey all currently set to compete, amongst others.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is now reporting that World Wonder Ring Stardom’s Giulia is set to compete on the show, likely defending her NJPW STRONG Women’s Championship, despite Stardom having a pay-per-view of their own that day. Additionally, Bushiroad and NJPW are believed to be discussing the possibility of Giulia making her debut for AEW/ROH whilst in America.

“Giulia will be wrestling on the All Star Jr. Festival show in Philadelphia. Stardom has a PPV that day but she won’t be on it. Right now it’s only one match but Bushiroad/NJPW are making deals so it’s possible she’ll be on an AEW show that week like with Utami Hayashishita.”


As mentioned within the report, fellow former World of Stardom Champion Utami Hayashishita recently made her first appearance for ROH following a run of matches for GCW, defeating Trish Adora on last night’s episode on Honor Club.

As of writing, it’s unclear as to whom Giulia’s opponent will be at the All Star Jr Festival show, although as always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on both her scheduled appearance in Philadelphia and any potential AEW/ROH crossover as soon as we hear more.
