Sign Thunder Rosa May Not Be Back On AEW TV Soon
Thunder Rosa has been out of action since August
AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa has been out of action since early August with a back injury, but if AEW promotional materials are to be believed, there’s no sign of Rosa returning to the company anytime soon.
AEW recently announced a return to San Antonio, Texas on December 21 for the Holiday Bash specials of Dynamite and Rampage, notably omitting Rosa from the promotional posters. Rosa is a San Antonio local, with her victory over Britt Baker for the AEW Women’s Championship at St. Patrick's Day Slam in March coming in front of a hometown San Antonio crowd, with Rosa receiving a heroes welcome as she took on Baker in a Steel Cage Match.
Whilst it is possible that Rosa could return before then, or that AEW will want Rosa’s return to be a surprise, you would assume the company would put the hometown favourite front and centre of local promotional materials in order to give ticket sales a boost.
Whenever Thunder Rosa does return, it has been confirmed that she will face whoever is the holder of the Interim AEW Women’s World Championship in a title unification bout, as is AEW protocol.
