AEW Women’s World Championship #1 contender Thunder Rosa recently spoke to WrestleTalk about her big match on tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
The match will see Rosa challenge Britt Baker for the AEW Women’s World Championship in a rematch from Revolution, but this time, it’ll be inside a steel cage.
Before it’s even taken place, the match has gone down in the history books as it’s the first women’s cage match in AEW history, and comes at the St Patrick’s Day Slam edition of Dynamite, much like the headline-making lights out match between Rosa and Baker did last year.
Speaking on the latest WrestleTalk Podcast, reflecting on the Revolution encounter and looking ahead to tonight, Thunder Rosa said:
“It was hard, defeat is definitely hard, like just coming back from that right? I tried my hardest, I fought my hardest, I did some stuff I had never done before because I wanted to capture that title. I have been on the chase for over two years and it started with Shida and now with Britt Baker. I had to step away on Monday and go to the beach because there were a lot of things I was thankful for but there was a lot of stuff I was like, okay I need to work harder on this.
“And then the news came to me on Wednesday that it was going to be a cage match, okay, game is on. Then I started thinking, 1) The Freeman Coliseum was the first time I had my first ever MMA match so I know how it feels to be in a cage at that same place, 2) I know how it is to lose in my hometown at that place so at this point, I have nothing else to do but to win. There’s nothing else in my mind. I have to capture what belongs to me, what I have worked so hard for the last seven years, the thing that people told me I will never accomplish. And for that thing that people told me that I don’t have what it takes because I’m a carny, because I’m not a star, because I’m too worried about little things – like I said, I’m not afraid of anything at this point.
“I’ve been there, I’ve felt it, when they closed that cage in November 2019, they closed the cage, I never felt so close to God. Because there was two things that could happen, either I won or I lost really, really bad and almost you know, die trying. None of those two happened (laughs), it was by decision so there are no judges here, it’s definitive win so I’m really happy, I think I have the upper hand on this one.”
