Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker will finally meet one-on-one in AEW with the two competitors set to face off at Beach Break on February 3rd.
During the Dynamit debut of Baker’s ‘Waiting Room’ segment, Thunder Rosa appeared on the screen to reveal that Tony Khan had made the match official. The two were originally meant to meet in the ring at night 2 of New Year’s Smash. This match was postponed as reportedly, Thunder Rosa came into contact with someone who had tested positive for COVID-19.

This announcement came at the end of a chaotic debut for the ‘Waiting Room’ segment. Their guest, Cody Rhodes, was confronted by Jade Cargill who reiterated her allegiance with Shaq. Red Velvet, who had been aligned with Brandi Rhodes, then confronted Cargill and a pull-apart brawl took place between the two.
Thunder Rosa debuted in AEW in August 2020 before challenging AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida. Rosa was NWA Women’s World Champion at the time, a title she held since defeating Allysin Kay in January 2020. She would lose this title against another AEW newcomer, Serena Deeb, in October.
Since then, Britt Baker has antagonized and attacked Thunder Rosa as she has taken an exception to Rosa appearing in AEW. Also announced for the Beach Break event is the wedding of Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford.
