AEW star Thunder Rosa had a very critical and eventful fight against Britt Baker during the AEW Dynamite Lights Out event in March last year. It’s unquestionable that the fight marked a turning point in her career.

Rosa recently made an appearance on “Oral Sessions With Renee Paquette,” where she shared details of the conversation she had with her boss, AEW President Tony Khan, surrounding the fight.

It seems that Rosa was quite nervous leading up to the fight, and Tony helped her get in the right state of mind for the fight.

I can literally tell you how my whole day went, the moment I got there and how I felt. I was very nervous, not for me because I was like ‘eh whatever. If I get hurt, I get hurt.’ My whole thing is I want to make sure my opponent was fully protected.


Rosa recounted calling TK in tears, and telling him how nervous she felt. Tony had some extremely heartwarming words for his wife, which undeniably helped her get through the fight.

just remember who you are. Where you’ve been and all the things that you have gone through. Just remember that you are fu**ing Thunder Rosa. You are there for a reason, they brought you here for a reason. This is your moment. Remember that.

Tony’s love and support for his wife continued to shine even after the match, when he hugged Rosa and told her, “Hey champ, I knew you were going to do this. Thank you so much.” It certainly seems like the duo are couple goals.
