Rosa has been touted as one of the best in-ring female performers in recent memory. She truly made a name for herself in a Lights Out match against Britt Baker earlier in the year. Now it seems Mick Foley gave her huge props recently.

On top of that, Thunder Rosa is a legitimate fighter as she has competed in the MMA world as well. Her last fight took place on November 8, 2019, where Thunder Rosa squared off against Nadine Mandiau at Combate Americas: San Antonio, dropping a unanimous decision.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley gave massive props to Thunder Rosa and explained why she is a special talent. It all came down to her simply having a feel for wrestling the same way Ric Flair and Terry Funk did.

“She strikes me as one of those really rare people who feels it every time she’s hitting the ring, and I mean, I’d like to say I felt it every time. I didn’t.


Ric Flair did, Terry Funk did, and it’s a short list but she’s somebody that just like, oh man, lives, breaths wrestling and she’s just a super cool person.”

Thunder Rosa is currently in the semi-finals for the TBS Women’s Title tournament, where she will face off against Jade Cargill. It remains to be seen who will come out on top in the match.
