Thunder Rosa Comments on AEW Not Having a Woman Like Her on Their Roster
A recent episode of the This Is The NWA Podcast had Thunder Rosa as the guest. Some of the topics discussed included her thoughts on her AEW Women’s World Championship match at last Saturday’s All Out event and backstage advice she received prior to her match.
On the topic of her match at AEW’s All Out event, Rosa stated:
“It’s been a team effort and I just came there and just represented and yesterday [All Out] was really good because [Hikaru] Shida was — she was willing to do something different. She’s worked with us, I mean of course the people that she works with in AEW, but I don’t think they have a woman like me on the roster and I showed it from the moment I showed up there. That first week, I went there and I went to training and I showed the girls how you should look when you train, and how you should look when you get in the ring. You should be the same way and you should train as hard because it’s national TV and it’s prime time, you know?”
On the topic of the advice she received backstage from Kenny Omega prior to her match, Rosa stated:
“The thing is the pressure was [a lot]. Everybody was like, ‘You guys have to knock it out of the park,’ Wednesday too and… another thing, they gave us time which they never do on Dynamite, ever, on women’s wrestling and then I come and I’m the NWA Champion who’s not even signed and it’s just like… we’re in the back, there was supposed to be some stuff and then [Kenny] Omega came then he looked at us and said, ‘Show them what a real women’s wrestling match should look like.’”
