In a recent trailer for AEW All Access, Britt Baker made a bold statement about the state of the AEW Women’s division, hinting that there were several storylines that had been put on hold due to the absence of the then-champion, Thunder Rosa. Rosa was forced to give up her title, prompting the creation of an interim title that would eventually become the undisputed title.
In the premiere episode of AEW All Access, Baker was seen discussing Rosa’s decision to give up the title with Jamie Hayter and Toni Storm. When asked about her opinion on Rosa by SLAM Wrestling, Baker stood by her previous comments, expressing her frustration over the situation.
“I stand by everything I said because I still have the same questions… You are traveling all over the place for other projects but you’re not coming work where you are the champion? I have that question. I want to know why. I am just asking that question because I’m very passionate and protective of AEW. Anyone can call me a bully but I stand by that and that question still hasn’t been answered to this day. People like Adam Cole would have killed to be able to come to work but he cannot travel. It is not like he was going in and doing a signing or convention or a seminar. They’re not coming to work but he wasn’t able to even leave the house.”Britt Baker
Thunder Rosa will apparently be doing Spanish commentary on AEW Dynamite in the meantime. The exact date of her in-ring comeback is yet to be announced, leaving fans eagerly waiting to see her in action once again. We’ll have to see when she will finally be back to the squared circle.
