Thunder Rosa is one of the best in-ring female pro wrestlers in the business right now. Thunder Rosa was planning to defend the AEW Women’s World Title against Toni Storm at All Out, in a highly anticipated match.
However, it was announced that she can no longer compete in the match due to injury. Rosa is still the Women’s Champion and will face the new Interim AEW Women’s World Champion in the future in a title unification match.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Thunder Rosa shared details regarding her injury. The AEW Women’s Champion revealed that she cannot even walk after her brutal injury.
I’m not the best, physically right now. I was in a lot of pain yesterday. A lot has been happening in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I’m going to be out of commission. I don’t know for how long. For a couple months, probably. I have a problem with my back and yesterday, I was trying to be strong. Back problems are not easy. Some days are good, some days are not. Yesterday was not a good day, I was in a lot of pain.
That’s one of the reasons why I’m taking time off. I want to clear the air, this is not fake. This is not a work. I’m not comparing injuries to injuries. If I could fucking walk, I can f***** work. Doctor Sampson, he didn’t clear me to wrestle. I’m not cleared to wrestle. It’s not that I don’t want to do a match on Sunday [AEW All Out], I can’t walk. It’s a shame that this is being put on social media, not only to discredit me as an athlete, but also discredit me as a wrestler. I want to walk when I’m 40. I have the right to say ‘No, I can’t walk, I can’t do it.’ I don’t want to have surgery. If we keep doing this and going through the pain, then I’m going to be out for longer. I don’t want to do that
AEW also planned for Thunder Rosa to lose her Women’s Title at All Out. We will have to wait and see who will become the Interim Women’s Champion at AEW All Out.
