Thunder Rosa's AEW Return Still At Least Six Weeks Away
Thunder Rosa remains out of action with a back injury
Thunder Rosa's return to in-ring action is still some way off, it was revealed during the latest episode of the former AEW Women's World Champion's vlog.
Dr Michael Sampson told Rosa about her back injury:
"Looking at the most recent MRIs and all the conservative stuff we've done in the past, you're progressing well right now. You do still have all the pathology in your lower back, L4, L5. I think that with our progression, pushing it to the limit but taking it sequentially, so going week to week to week, we push a little bit more. If we hit a roadblock, we back it up a step. But I think over the next four to six weeks, we'll see how it's going. You've been progressing very well, pain-free. I think if we continued to do that, we know where we stand, gets you stronger, gets you more ring ready. As long as you don't have that pain, we're good. We still have to protect your back, the pathology has not gone away. It's just a matter of, we're treating it so that it helps you improve yet also protects you from not worsening. So, that's where we're at with it."
Rosa then asked about a timetable for her recovery and Sampson added: "I would say that's a good shooting point or goal point to go to, six weeks to see how we go with that."
Rosa has been out of action with a back injury since August 2022. She was initially expected to return by November's Full Gear pay-per-view and she was stripped of the AEW Women's World Title following the show. Rosa has been back on the road with AEW since February as part of the promotion's Spanish commentary team and she will be a featured performer on AEW Collision when she returns to the ring.
