As we reported on the Thursday after the AEW Dynamite episode, Thunder Rosa announced that she was injured and therefore cannot temporarily continue her reign as a champion and thus AEW has organized a Fatal-4-Way to decree an interim champion.
In recent days there has been a lot of discussion about luchadora, there has been talk of the possibility of an injury in the storyline, but she wanted to clarify it by talking to Busted Open Radio during a chat.
Is Thunder Rosa injured?
“I'm not at my best physically right now.
I was in a lot of pain yesterday. A lot has happened in the past two weeks. Unfortunately, it will be out of order. I don't know for how long. For a couple of months, probably. I have a back problem and yesterday I was trying to be strong.
Back problems aren't easy. Some days are good, some are not. Yesterday was not a good day. I was terribly sick," said Thunder Rosa. "That's one of the reasons I'm taking my time off. I want to clear things up, this isn't false. This isn't work.
If I could walk, fuck, I could work. Dr. Sampson didn't give me permission to wrestle. I'm not allowed to fight. 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 put on social media, not only to discredit me as an athlete but also to 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 this.' I don't want to be operated on. I'll be out for longer if we keep doing this and try to do things with this pain. I do not want to do it." Thunder Rosa also added that she received the news about her injury: "The news came to me on Tuesday from another doctor.
When I arrived on Wednesday, I said to Josh, my physiotherapist: 'It hurt me to know, as a champion, that I won't be at one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year. As a champion, who can't defend her belt, who can't physically have the match I want to have.
I've worked all my life to have moments like this. It hurts." Speaking with veteran journalist Bill Apter in an interview with Sportskeeda, Thunder Rosa spoke about the wrestling veterans who have guided her with significant backstage advice: "Dustin Rhodes has been my coach ever since I got there.
When I'm struggling with certain ideas, I go with Dean Malenko. He always has great ways for finishers or like transitions to move from one to another," Rosa said.
