The safety of women in any field of work has been an important topic of discussion throughout the world, and the wrestling business is no different. AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa recently opened up about how she is fighting for the cause.

Rosa recently appeared on Under The Ring Podcast, where she spoke about privacy concerns about women wrestlers, especially in the indie scene. She is very much against unisex locker rooms which are prominent outside of major promotions.

“When I go to a locker room, and there’s not a space for us to change, especially on the independent scene, I don’t care anymore. I’ll be like, ‘I need a room for my five, six girls. They need to be changed in a place where they can take their clothes off, and they don’t feel like everybody is watching, and they don’t need to be putting a towel on.’ We have the right to do that, it’s 2022.

Rosa also pointed out the obvious problems that come with sharing locker rooms with men. For that reason, she has become a voice to charge the movement forward in hopes of seeing distinct locker rooms for women in wrestling.


“A lot of independent shows because of the space, the women have to change with men. A lot of issues arise a couple of years ago, and there was the speaking out movement. And a lot of people talk about that, so, I am very outspoken now. Thankfully because of the position I have, I am able to say something, and people respect that.”

Rosa has been doing great in her AEW run, not to mention that she is also the current AEW Women’s World Champion in her first reign. Of course, Rosa’s position in the wrestling business lends a lot of credibility to her voice. Hopefully, she is able to make the difference she wants real soon.
