Britt Baker and former NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa’s feud was being built up for the past few weeks on AEW television. The two were set to compete against each other in a singles match on next week’s AEW Dynamite.
However, AEW did not promote the match when they mentioned the card for next week’s show on New Year’s Smash Night One this week. Now it seems the match has been effectively nixed for good reason.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Thunder Rosa came into contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 and that is why Rosa did not appear on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Britt Baker vs Thunder Rosa is now postponed and it has been replaced by Serena Deeb facing off against Tay Conti of Dark Order for the NWA Women’s Championship.
Also off the 1/13 show was the Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa match. Rosa was in contact with someone who was COVID positive so was held off the tapings this week but the match will take place at some point. The official word is that they decided to add the NWA women’s title match to the show since it hadn’t been defended. In its place the decision was made to debut Baker’s Waiting Room segment as well as add Serena Deeb vs. Tay Conti (with the Dark Order in their corner) for the NWA women’s title.
We will have to see when Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa will be able to face off against each other.
