Report: Thunder Rosa Still Dealing With Back Injury Despite AEW Return
Thunder Rosa returned on this week's AEW Dynamite
After nine months out of action, Thunder Rosa returned to All Elite Wrestling during the May 10 edition of Dynamite and the former AEW Women's World Champion was shown entering Tony Khan's office shortly after Miro made his own return to speak with the AEW CEO.
Rosa has been out of action since the summer of 2022 with a back injury and despite her return, La Mera Mera is still suffering from issues with her back, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer.
"Rosa's back is really bad. I was kinda surprised. She's been at the tapings every week [for Spanish commentary] and I know that when she's trained in the ring...they showed one of them on All Access and granted that was months ago, but I've heard still, when she's training, she's hurting a lot. Her back is not better...they reintroduced her. I don't know what the role would be. I didn't get the impression she was ready to return so quickly," Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio.
It was not revealed on Dynamite when Rosa would make her in-ring return. It was recently noted the AEW star may need surgery to repair her back and Rosa herself admitted last week that she sometimes fears her in-ring career is over.
During her time away from the ring, Rosa has been a part of the Spanish-language commentary team for AEW programming.
