Tony Khan Admits He May Have To Strip Thunder Rosa Of The AEW Women’s World Title

Tony Khan discusses the idea of having to strip current AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa due to her injury.

During the AEW Full Gear media call on Thursday afternoon, Khan spoke on the situation and whether it is time to strip Thunder Rosa off the title if she continues to be sidelined.

“It’s something we have considered,” Khan said. “It’s something to consider. I’m still weighing the pros and cons. Thunder Rosa’s a great wrestler, and it’s unfortunate that she’s injured. It’s kept her out a long time. It’s not an easy situation and I try to take everything on a case-by-case basis, and am trying to give Thunder Rosa every opportunity to come back and defend the championship. But eventually, you would have to crown a lineal champion.”
