AEW: Kenny Omega Visa Issues Reportedly Resolved, Thunder Rosa Injury Update, Dark Results

Kenny Omega Visa Issues Reportedly Resolved, Set for Wednesday’s Dynamite Show

As noted before, Kenny Omega has been absent from AEW for the past several weeks due to visa-related issues.

The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reported that his sources stated that Omega’s visa issues were recently resolved and he can continue working in the United States.

Meltzer reported that Omega is also currently scheduled to make his return at this Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite show in Dayton, Ohio. AEW’s plans for Omega on the show reportedly are currently not known.

Thunder Rosa Comments on Wanting to Improve Her Promo Skills for AEW Return

As noted before, Thunder Rosa has been out of action for AEW since this past September due to her suffering a spinal-related injury.

A recent episode of the Steven’s Wrestling Journey show on YouTube featured Rosa as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Rosa’s thoughts on wanting to improve her promo skills as part of her plans for her return from injury to AEW in the future.

“A goal I have when I return, I want to get better at promos, so I can be on TV more. I’m taking some acting classes, actually. Acting classes, singing classes, and I want to show the world that I’m multi-talented. I do radio, I want to do TV, I want to do music and use all of that into my character.”

Rosa also gave her thoughts on who she is the most interested in competing in a match once she is medically cleared to return to in-ring action.

“One person I haven’t wrestled at AEW is Athena. Athena and I could have some banger matches. In Mexico, it’s Sarah Stock, Sarita, who was a coach in WWE. She is my dream match and I know she’s wrestling now.”
