Thunder Rosa Opens Up About Her Injury

Thunder Rosa Opens Up About Her Injury AEW

AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa has commented on her injury, and recent reports about backstage drama.

On the August 24 edition of Dynamite, it was revealed that Rosa isn’t currently cleared to compete, and a interim AEW Women’s Title bout was announced for All Out on September 4.

The star has reportedly dealing with an issue with discs in her back for some time now.

This same week, rumors emerged on backstage heat involving Thunder Rosa, Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter which you can read more about right here.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Thunder Rosa noted that she expects to be out of action for a couple of months.

Shooting down rumors about her injury being a work, Rosa said:

“I’m not the best, physically right now. I was in a lot of pain yesterday. A lot has been happening in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I’m going to be out of commission. I don’t know for how long. For a couple months, probably.

“I have a problem with my back and yesterday, I was trying to be strong. Back problems are not easy. Some days are good, some days are not. Yesterday was not a good day, I was in a lot of pain,” she said. “That’s one of the reasons why I’m taking time off.

“I want to clear the air, this is not fake. This is not a work. I’m not comparing injuries to injuries. If I could f**king walk, I can f**king work. Doctor Sampson, he didn’t clear me to wrestle. I’m not cleared to wrestle. It’s not that I don’t want to do a match on Sunday (AEW All Out), I can’t walk.

“It’s a shame that this is being put on social media, not only to discredit me as an athlete, but also discredit me as a wrestler. I want to walk when I’m 40. I have the right to say ‘No, I can’t walk, I can’t do it.’ I don’t want to have surgery. If we keep doing this and going through the pain, then I’m going to be out for longer. I don’t want to do that.”

“The news got to me on Tuesday from another doctor. When I got there on Wednesday, I told Josh, my (Physical Therapist), ‘it just hit me that, as a champion, I’m not going to be on one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year. As a champion, that I can’t defend my championship, that I can’t physically have the match I want to have. That I’ve been working my whole life to have moments like this.’ It hurts.”

At All Out, Toni Storm, Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Hikaru Shida will battle it out in a fourway bout for the interim AEW Women’s Championship.
