Thunder Rosa has given an update on her recent injury, before the upcoming debut of AEW Collision on Saturday.
The former AEW Women’s Champion was forced to vacate the championship in August 2022, after an injury suffered in the ring turned out to be much worst than first feared.
Since dropping the title, Jamie Hayter and Toni Storm (twice) have held the title, while fans didn’t know if Thunder Rosa would ever return to the ring.
However, she returned finally on a recent AEW Dynamite episode, before being announced as part of the roster for the new AEW Collision show, debuting on June 17th, 2023.
Thunder Rosa’s injury seems to be on the mend, with the Mexican star likely to return to the ring soon, according the woman herself in a recent interview.
Speaking during a recent interview with NBC Chicago, the former AEW Women’s Champion commented on a variety of topics, including her return from injury and debut on AEW Collision.
When asked about how her recovery from injury is going, Thunder Rosa said, “It’s going pretty well. Things are going as they’re supposed to go. I am super happy that I’ve been pain-free. That was the most important part. I think it took forever. I think everybody’s expecting me to give them news, but I am working out every day, trying to get back into the ring as soon as possible, and if it’s possible. That’s what I’m trying to do.”
She then spoke about the upcoming AEW Collision TV show, and what its upcoming debut means for her career, as well as how Thunder Rosa’s injury has helped her learn many new skills over the past 9 months.
“That’s a great question. I’m just open for anything that can happen in my career.” Thunder Rosa said, “I’ve always said after the injury that I suffered and reflecting on everything that has happened in the last nine, almost ten months, I’m really open for anything.”
“I’ve discovered many facets of my career, such as being a commentator, such as being a radio host, a singer, a vlogger, always creating something new.” the former NWA Women’s Champion added, “For professional wrestling, I don’t think [it] will be any different. I will be happy no matter what happens for my career. I think it is important to live in the moment and now with Collision and with this opportunity that AEW has given to many people I can mention that will be there, Miro, FTR, MJF, and all others, I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun. It’s gonna be different, and we’re all excited to see new beginnings and new starts on a new show.”
Thunder Rosa will join returning stars like Andrade, Miro and CM Punk for the debut episode of AEW Collision.
