Thunder Rosa is considered one of the best female in-ring competitors in the world right now. However, she is facing a debilitating back injury and still remains out of action even now. While Rosa is still unable to compete, it appears she revealed how Lady Gaga inspired her.

Thunder Rosa’s back injury forced her to withdraw from AEW All Out last year. Despite her absence, she maintained her status as the AEW Women’s Champion but eventually had to forfeit the title – with Jamie Hayter being recognized as the only AEW Women’s Champion at the time.

The former AEW Women’s Champion has been working hard rehabbing her injuries and clearly, she is feeling much better now. While Rosa is certainly feeling better, fans are concerned that she might not be ready for an in-ring return anytime soon.

While speaking with John Howell, Rosa was asked who influenced her in the world of professional wrestling. Thunder Rosa revealed Lady Gaga influenced her in a major way.


”Lady Gaga, she really inspired me to really push the envelope and for further. Sometimes you make people uncomfortable with that.”

Thunder Rosa also contemplated ending her life during her in-ring hiatus. Regardless, we can only hope La Mera Mera will be able to return to the squared circle somewhere down the line.

What’s your take on Thunder Rosa? Do you want her to return as soon as possible? Let us know in the comments!
