The list of the greatest Mexican wrestlers is long and full of some of the biggest names in wrestling history. Now, AEW star Thunder Rosa has revealed she not only wants to be on the list but be at the top.
While speaking with Fightful, Thunder Rosa talked about her time in AEW and her goals for her legacy. Here is the quote:
“I just want to say that the whole entire AEW staff / family, they’re absolutely amazing. I don’t want to be specific to what person, but everything that I’ve done so far has been taken very positively. It’s a dream of mine, and I even when tell my husband who gave me feedback he gets kind of jealous, ‘cause Arn (Anderson) and Dean—I love talking to Dean (Malenko), he’s so funny—and one other person that has been there and believed in me day one was Dustin Rhodes. Dustin is such a true leader. He’s absolutely amazing. He believes in me. He’s a wonderful coach.
I had a wonderful conversation with Kenny Omega. Pretty much everybody, honestly. It’s just a reassurance that what I’m doing currently, it’s right and I just need to tune in certain things to become a better performer and a better wrestler. Sean, you’ve known me for a minute now, I don’t stop. Like I said, I want to be the best, most successful of Mexican born wrestler in the history of professional wrestling and I think every year I’m making it happen,”
While it is good to have aspirations in wrestling, to be the biggest Mexican wrestling star in history is a lofty goal. El Santo remains a major cultural figure in Mexico and his level of success would be very difficult to attain today.
