Thunder Rosa has been back in the ring, reportedly working alongside Shochi Funaki.

It’s been almost a year since Thunder Rosa last competed inside an AEW ring, with the 37-year-old having been away from active competition since she unfortunately had to pull out of an AEW Women’s Title defence at last year’s All Out due to a reported back injury.

Now, per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it’s been revealed that Rosa is currently training for her return in San Antonio with none other than former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Shochi Funaki.

Rosa’s last match was a victory in trios competition as she stood alongside Toni Storm and Hikaru Shida to battle Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir and Nyla Rose on August 10, 2022. It’s unclear how long it will be before she will return to the ring, though, she did appear on Dynamite in May, in a segment which saw her enter Tony Khan’s office.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any updates on Thunder Rosa and her return to AEW as we hear more.
