Thunder Rosa is one of the best in-ring female pro wrestlers in the world right now, but that doesn’t mean she is invincible. She has been out of action due to a back injury, and now it seems fans will have a better idea when she’ll return.
Rosa was pulled from AEW All Out due to a back injury. In fact, it was said that she couldn’t even walk, but she is still working on her way back. She then forfeited the AEW Women’s Championship during this week’s Dynamite after Jamie Hayter won the title at Full Gear.
While speaking on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Rosa is expected to return by February next year. That is certainly a longer hiatus than fans expected.
The deal with Rosa was that, when she went down, she was going to lose the title at that pay-per-view (All Out) to Toni Storm.
They expected her back in November or December, in that timeframe, and I think the feeling was, because of what happened with Punk, where they gave him a couple of months, to be consistent they would have to do the same thing here.
Now it’s looking like February, so now I think they’re saying February’s too long.”
Thunder Rosa has already reacted to forfeiting the title. We will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for Rosa once she is back. If anything, Thunder Rosa has certainly proven herself as a valuable asset to any roster at this point.
