Thunder Rosa is the current AEW Women’s Champion. The champion has been out of action due to a back injury. It has made her pull out of many matches, including the one at AEW All Out. That being said, a lot has happened since her hiatus.
AEW crowned a new AEW Interim Women’s Champion in Toni Storm. She and Athena were in action on AEW Dynamite Grand Slam when Dr. Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Rebel decided to take down the interim champion and her tag team partner.
It was at this time that a surprise happened and speaking about it on Busted Open Radio, the current AEW Women’s Champion said that she has known Saraya since her Indie days.
Rosa believes that she should be ready for in-ring action as she has all the skills to wrestle. She has worked and kept her core intact. She said Saraya’s addition will help the female superstars learn a lot and that will be a welcome experience.
I hope she is completely cleared to wrestle. She is going to teach a lot of the girls a lot of cool stuff that otherwise they wouldn’t have the opportunity to do. Wrestling was her bread and butter for a long time and she knows the grind.
Before she got signed, she was in the indies struggling just like everybody else. One of the things that Saraya has is that she has not changed her core. She continues to be the same person that she was before. I’m really interested to get to know her on another level.
So, it is going to be very interesting. She brings a lot to the women’s division. She brings a brand, something that is needed in the division too. That you cannot deny. I know Tony does a lot of stuff because he wants ratings. We want to be number one. If you start something and you don’t want to be number one, don’t start it. But for me as an athlete, for me as a champion, that is top competition right there, on every single aspect. Experience, persona, character, how well-known she is, she’s a star. She has what I want and I’m striving for.
While no detail has been revealed on when Saraya will make her in-ring debut, Saraya has asked fans to stay tuned to this week’s AEW Dynamite. It would be interesting to see what she has to say this week.
