Thunder Rosa finally captured the AEW Women’s Championship from Britt Baker on March 16 at St Patrick’s Day Slam, and has reigned over the division ever since, defending the title against the likes of Serena Deeb, Miyu Yamashita, and Jamie Hayter, although it hasn’t always been plain sailing for La Mera Mera.
Speaking to the Bullet Cast podcast, Rosa compared her current title run with her NWA Women’s Championship reign in 2020, noting that she constantly feels the pressure of wanting to look perfect on AEW TV and make a difference for women’s wrestling.
“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.”-Thunder Rosa
As of writing, Rosa’s opponent for the upcoming All Out PPV is yet to be announced, although the champion is currently embroiled in a feud involving Toni Storm, Britt Baker, and Jamie Hayter, and thus a multi-woman bout may be the likely outcome.
