Thunder Rosa Hopes To Defend Championship In Japan And Mexico AEW

Thunder Rosa recently won the AEW Women’s World Championship and is now opening up about some goals for her reign, including being a fighting and traveling champion.

Speaking to the ladies of the Throwing Down with Miesha Tate & Renee Paquette podcast, Rosa spoke about her goal for her championship reign, saying:

“I really hope there is an opportunity for me to be a fighting champion. I would love to travel with the championship. I know we have connections with Japan. I worked in Tokyo Joshi Pro before. I would love if there was an opportunity for me to bring the championship and defend it in Japan. If there’s an opportunity to defend it in Mexico. Do some of the stuff that we haven’t done yet.”

Going on to elaborate about this championship and how meaningful it is, Thunder Rosa said:

“I’m really huge on bringing a different style of wrestling. This will be interesting because I will be able to work with people you guys probably haven’t seen before and work in a different style and showcase what we can do. I’m really hoping we’re given this opportunity. There’s a huge opportunity for me to bring a different look to the women’s championship. I do a lot of stuff in the community and I want to make sure I represent the company with honor and respect and I bring the title every time I come and do something with the community. It’s important for those kids, women, and men that they see someone who looks like them can make it far and to give an example of that. I also want to bring another type of leadership into the locker room. I’m working on it and we’re working on a lot of stuff and I’m hopeful we’re able to do a lot of cool stuff in and out of the ring.”

Thunder Rosa’s moment of glory on the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite (March 23) was cut short when she was first interrupted by Vickie Guerrero and next assaulted from behind by Nyla Rose, seemingly setting up a program between the two.
