A popular star who has worked several matches for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) recently has called their 2020 PWI ranking “shameful” of those who decided it.
Former NWA World Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa, who left the NWA recently, spoke about her #14 ranking in the PWI Women’s 100 with Women’s Wrestling Talk. In 2019, she had been ranked #97.
“They interviewed me. I was very clear, I told them it was shameful of them because I was working my ass off. Just because I didn’t have a title, that prestigious title on me or I wasn’t on a top TV show, didn’t mean I didn’t know my worth. I know my worth from day one. I knew from day one when I lost the $3,000 talking to my husband that we are going to make it far and we are going to make it big; I knew that. I knew that when I was having matches with the not very talented talent that people were telling them, that was the best match they ever had. I knew I had something going on. Waiting for that long, to be number 14 or be recognized… it was kinda shameful, honestly. Having a number on a ranking system or not having it, didn’t mean anything to me. I already knew who I was and I already knew what I can bring to the table. And, I’ve shown it over and over again. It’s just reinforcement my work is being noticed and it’s paying off. But like I said, that doesn’t define me.”
Since Thunder Rosa left the NWA, it’s not yet been announced that she’s signed elsewhere. We’ll keep you up to date with her status when any news comes to light.
