During the AEW Double or Nothing Buy-In, Tony Khan announced that the 2024 Owen Hart Cup tournament would take place and conclude in Owen’s hometown of Calgary, Alberta, on Dynamite on July 10. The winners of both the men’s and women’s tournaments will receive a match for their respective AEW World Championships at All In. The bracket has been revealed, but former champion Thunder Rosa is notably absent. She’s also not happy about it.

Recently, Rosa lost a feud with Deonna Purrazzo, who defeated Rosa two out of three times, most recently in a No DQ match on Collision. Then Purrazzo ended up in the tournament.

Thunder Rosa was not included in the Owen Hart Cup tournament brackets revealed on Dynamite. Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Rosa expressed her frustration with the situation and her determination to make her own way to AEW All In at Wembley Stadium.

“To add more insult to injury, I looked at [‘Dynamite’] this Wednesday [and] the Owen Hart, and my name wasn’t even there. And I’m like ‘Okay, that’s fine.’ And then I see her damn name…She not only beat me on Saturday, but she took my place. But that’s okay…I don’t need a tournament to show that I can go to Wembley. One way or another, I’m going to go to Wembley. I don’t need the tournament to get another opportunity for the Women’s World Title, because I know I can do it again with no damn tournament. I’m above that.”


Thunder Rosa recovered from a back injury that kept her out for all of 2023. That also had a lot to do with why she couldn’t properly drop the AEW Women’s Title at the time.

Despite her recovery, she has not reclaimed her spot at the top of the AEW women’s division, which she dominated as AEW Women’s World Champion in 2022.
