During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of discussed Riho's status with AEW and why she hasn't appeared on television during the pandemic:

ďThey can bring her in. The thing with her is she lives in Japan and then sheíd have to quarantine to go back, and thatís a tough deal. If she was living here sheíd be on TV every week. They do bring PAC back and forth, which is kind of a hassle. He comes here for a couple of weeks, then he has to quarantine for two weeks and then go home. Two weeks just to get home, itís not worth staying home for a week if youíve got to take two weeks to get home, so itís really tough. Itís just a tough business right now, itís a tough world. But that would be the same with Riho and I think that, like with PAC, I think theyíve got ideas for PAC to be in major matches, so it makes it worth doing, but Riho Ė itís not like thereís going to be great major matches for her, so itís kinda like, why put her through this I guess. They havenít used CIMA and T-Hawk and Lindaman either for the same reason, or similar reasons, because itís just not worth bringing them in for something thatís not major and then they have to quarantine and then bring them back. Itís just tough.Ē (quote courtesy of
