The former Lucha Underground star captured the AEW Women’s World Championship at St. Patrick’s Day Slam on March 16, one year after beating Britt Baker in the incredible Unsanctioned Match on AEW Dynamite.
She has since defended her AEW Women’s Championship against Nyla Rose and is set to do battle with Serena Deeb at AEW Double or Nothing 2022.
However, recent events have forced Thunder Rosa to reflect on her retirement and look towards the end of her career.
Thunder Rosa’s retirement may be closer than some AEW fans may think…
Thunder Rosa Retirement
Thunder Rosa recently talked about her retirement and when she plans to retire from professional wrestling. The 35 year old AEW Women’s Champion has been wrestling since 2014 but does not seem to want to wrestling long into her life, unlike the recently returning Ric Flair.
In an interview with Forbes, Thunder Rosa spoke about her retirement and how long she wants to continue wrestling.
“I’m going to wrestle as long as possible, but I don’t think I want to be wrestling after I’m 45. I know some of my peers at that age and they’re still wrestling. I personally don’t want to because it’s very taxing on your body.
“I can wrestle to the calibre, to the level that I’ve been wrestling at, for another three to four years… But I also have to scale back and take care of my body.”
As well as her retirement Thunder Rosa also spoke about how her body is feeling and how she deals with the rigours of modern life while dealing with being a full-time professional wrestler as well as a mother.
“My body feels 100 percent right now. I cannot tell you, for so long, I was in so much pain because I was wrestling so much. This schedule that we have, if you have a family, it’s really good because you get to spend more time with your family unless you’re like me, and you’re a workaholic and you’re always working.”
