Thunder Rosa reflects on the possibility of future back surgery following a debilitating injury that sidelined her from August 2022 to December 2023, leading her to vacate the AEW Women’s Championship.

During an appearance on the KiddChris Show, Rosa shared insights into her recovery journey, shedding light on the complexities of her injury.

When asked about the prospect of undergoing back fusion surgery, she revealed, “I didn’t. I think the possibility of surgery will be probably in the future. There were two things happening at the same time. I had tears on my lower back and I had herniations. Before you can do anything, you have to wait for the tears to not be tears. After, that’s when you can do the exercises. It took me about seven to eight months to exercise properly. There are a lot of things I had to change with training and in my life. I was a runner; I can no longer run. You have to pick and choose what you can do. I want to still be at 100% in the ring, so I had to change everything.”

Despite the challenges posed by her injury, Thunder Rosa remains resolute in her determination to excel in the ring. Scheduled to face Toni Storm for the AEW Women’s Championship at AEW Dynasty on April 21, Rosa’s unwavering commitment to her craft serves as an inspiration to fans and fellow athletes alike.


As Thunder Rosa continues to navigate her recovery journey and pursue her wrestling aspirations, one can’t help but wonder about the impact of such perseverance on the future of the sport.
