Thunder Rosa might be one of the favourites to win become the first ever TBS Champion, but the woman herself says she won’t be defined by any potential success.
On the October 6th episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Schiavone and Aubrey Edwards unveiled the TBS Championship. The title will serve as a secondary championship in the company’s women’s division, when Dynamite moves from TNT to TBS in early 2022.
After the announcement, Thunder Rosa, Jade Cargill, Ruby Soho and Skye Blue cut promos backstage declaring their intention to take part in the tournament and be crowned TBS Champion.
During an appearance with AdFreeShows, Rosa further looked ahead to the tournament, while expressing her delight at being able to be herself in AEW.
“At this moment, time will tell,” Rosa said about possibly winning the title.
“I am really happy that I’m working in a place where I’m happy and able to be me, regardless if I have a championship or not, that doesn’t define me, that doesn’t define who Thunder Rosa is and what she’s all about. I don’t care about the outcome, sometimes, I just care about when I’m in the ring, whoever is in the ring with me is going to get her ass beat. I give everything I have and I’m not going to let anyone punk me, if I’m going to win or not. I did a tournament before to get the number one contender-ship and Nyla beat me. This one, I’m not going to let anyone beat me easily. Not again.”
The tournament Rosa is referring to is the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator where she was defeated by Nyla Rose in the semi finals.
Despite not having got her hands on championship gold in AEW, Rosa does hold a victory over current Women’s Champion, Britt Baker. The pair famously met in an Unsanctioned Lights Out match back in March where the Mexican star emerged victorious in a bloody encounter.
Rosa was last seen in AEW on the October 1st episode of Rampage where she met Jade Cargill and Nyla Rosa in a three way match.
