Thunder Rosa went from being one of the pillars of the NWA to signing a permanent contract with AEW, a company with which she had also already collaborated, leaving an indelible blood-red mark on Britt Baker's face. During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, the luchadora answered questions about recent releases from WWE, which surprisingly continues to fire groups of people under the guise of budget cuts.
“I mean, I've worked with Taya [Valkyrie] before, so many times on Lucha Underground. Ember Moon, I haven't had the opportunity to work with her. She's like one of the Dallas veterans. I mean Texas veterans, and she's been working at NXT for so long and I don't think they've given her the platform she deserved.
She is so good. She is so underrated. So I hope to have the opportunity to work with her. She would be cool. She is really good."
Backstage news on Thunder Rosa
On Thursday, November 4, 2021, Ember Moon was released by WWE after six years with the company.
The last time she saw her on the company's screens it was her when she participated in the October 5th episode of NXT 2.0 in a match against Mandy Rose. Meanwhile, Thunder Rosa continues its race towards the TBS title in AEW, in fact, the company has put on a tournament to decree the first winner of this new belt for the women's division and she has recently beaten Jamie Hayter by advancing.
Last month, the Mexican said: “I'm really happy to work in a place where I'm happy and able to be me, regardless of whether I have a belt or not, that doesn't define me, that doesn't define who Thunder Rosa is. what kind of pasta is made.
I don't care about the result, I only care when I'm in the ring […] I give everything I have and I won't let anyone fool me, whether I win or not. [...]" This may also indicate that fans could expect to see more of La Mera Mera at AEW too since the NWA and AEW have come up with a working agreement during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rosa even defended the NWA Women's World Championship at All Out and now an AEW star, Serena Deeb, is the current champion. As we mentioned earlier, rumors that Thunder Rosa could potentially leave NWA surfaced when Dave Meltzer revealed that AEW and WWE are both showing interest in signing the former NWA Women's Champion.
