AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa has admitted that her reign with the title has been ‘really challenging’.
Speaking on the Bullet Cast podcast, Rosa compared her current title run with her NWA Women’s Championship reign in 2020, noting that she has felt the pressure of wanting to look perfect on AEW TV.
Wanting to truly make a difference for women’s wrestling, Rosa said:
“It’s been really challenging because being a champion on a major platform is different than when I was the NWA Women’s Champion. There’s a lot more at stake, there’s a lot more that you’re representing, and also a little bit of pressure.
“Every time you stand in front of the camera, you just want to make sure that you’re perfect. The thing is, it’s not about perfection, it’s about making a difference and I hope that I have been making a difference in the women’s division.”
Rosa won the AEW Women’s Title from Britt Baker at Dynamite: St Patrick’s Day Slam in March. She most recently defended the gold against Jamie Hayter at Battle of the Belts III.
