Thunder Rosa has been absent from AEW television for a while, but that wait for her return is coming to an end soon enough. AEW Collision will likely be her landing pad when that return from injury comes around, and it appears that fans won’t have to wait long.

Thunder Rosa recently provided fans with the latest update on her back injury. Since August 2022, she has been out of action, unable to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship at AEW All Out 2022 due to the injury. However, she made a brief appearance on the May 10 episode of AEW Dynamite, and her return has been anticipated for AEW Collision.

In her latest Vlog, Rosa shared her meeting with AEW doctor Michael Sampson, who provided an update on her current condition.

“It’s been a long process. Looking at the most recent MRIs and all the conservative stuff we’ve done in the past, you’re progressing well right now. You still have all the pathology in your lower back, L4 and L5, with our progression going into pushing it to the limit, but taking it sequentially, going week to week to week, we push a little more, if we hit a roadblock, we back it up a step. Over the next four to six weeks, we see how it’s going. So far, you’ve been progressing very well, pain-free. If we continue to do that, we know where we stand, get you stronger, get you ring ready, as long as you don’t have that pain, we’re good. We still have to protect your back. The pathology has not gone away, it’s just a matter of we’re treating it so it helps you improve yet also protects you from worse things. I would say [six weeks] is a good goal point to go to. Six weeks and see how we go with that.”


Thunder Rosa made a brief return to AEW television, as she was spotted backstage at Dynamite. She was hyping her eventual return to television, and Collision will be her apparent home whenever her return comes around.

AEW has a few stars that they could use in a variety of ways. How would you use Thunder Rosa? Sound off in the comments!
