Thunder Rosa Returned To AEW On Dynamite

Thunder Rosa

Former AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa made her return to Dynamite in El Paso, Texas but many might have missed it.

In late August 2022, Thunder Rosa announced in a backstage promo that she had to take some time away from the ring due to injury and therefore could not defend her AEW Women’s World Title at All Out. A four-way match took place featuring Toni Storm, Dr. Britt Baker DMD, Jamie Hayter, and Hikaru Shida to crown an interim champion with Storm picking up that win.

As Rosa’s back injury proved to be more prolonged, she was eventually stripped of the title with Storm’s reign retrospectively considered a full title reign as is the current champion’s, Jamie Hayter.

Dynamite was in El Paso, Texas on the 8th of February and Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Thunder Rosa was part of the show, providing Spanish language commentary. It is unknown if Rosa will continue in this role on a regular basis until she is ready to return to the ring.

A previous report from November 2022 suggested that La Mera Mera could be back in action in February, which if true means her in-ring return could be imminent.
