Thunder Rosa has quickly become one of the most respected and talked about wrestlers, no matter the gender. AEW has proven how much they value her as a wrestler, and as a human being, when they bought her out of her NWA contract.
Rosa, born in Tijuana, Mexico, has always had big goals for herself, and she is living up to them. Rosa has been on seemingly every notable promotion in the states. Rosa has appeared anywhere and everywhere to put on amazing, unforgettable matches. Her dedication to women’s wrestling is nothing short of evident. She is even doing amazing work with her own all-female promotion, Mission Pro Wrestling, out of Texas. Rosa was recently announced for the GCW SO ALIVE show on December 4. Back at GCW Fight Club, Rosa made her debut as a surprise participant in a scramble match.
Rosa only debuted back in 2014, but she wrestles like a 20-year veteran. Rosa only started watching wrestling in her mid-20s and then began to train at 27. In lots of great women’s matches, she tends to be the common denominator. Rosa put on a Match of The Year candidate when she wrestled Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. in a critically-acclaimed Unsanctioned Lights Out match. This match single-handedly drew a ton of attention to the AEW women’s division. Rosa was even one of the members of the AEW roster to step through the “forbidden door” when she was revealed as Impact! Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo’s mystery opponent Impact!’s annual Slammiversary PPV.
Rosa has also been deeply involved in all of AEW’s community work. She has been seen at many of their community events focused on giving back to the community they’re hosting an event in. The former NWA World Women’s Champion has also been a participant in a lot of the AEW Heels events as well. Prior to being a wrestler, Rosa worked as a social worker so it is obvious where she gets her caring heart from. Rosa even got her ring name from the street of a community service facility she worked for in the Bay Area, Thunder Road.
Rosa is currently a competitor within the inaugural TBS Women’s Championship tournament. Many people have coined her as the woman to beat the current AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker. On this year’s PWI Women’s 150, Rosa was placed at number 5; last year she was number 14. It is crystal clear that this year alone, Rosa has been breaking down barriers for women in the business and challenging/breaking the glass ceiling placed above the division. Rosa surely uses any opportunity she is given to elevate not only herself, but the women she shares the ring with.
