Since joining the AEW women’s roster, Thunder Rosa has become a fan favorite. Her lights-out match with Britt Baker put a spotlight on her and showed that she is a force to be reckoned with. This Sunday, Thunder Rosa will face off against Baker for the AEW Women’s World Championship.
During an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Rosa went over what she plans on doing when she wins the championship and said she wants to model what Kenny Omega has done as champion.
Get ready, ladies. Some of the matches I have envisioned and some of the things I would love to do…when I was NWA (Women’s) Champion, I was a fighting champion. I went out everywhere, I defended the thing during COVID times. I found a way to make it relevant and I want the AEW women’s division, kind of like Kenny Omega was doing, I would love to do something like that. I think we haven’t had a champion like that and I think I have what it takes to be that. I have the grit, the determination, the consistency, everything is developing with Thunder Rosa.”
Rosa also addressed recent criticism she received about her promos and her mindset going into matches.
“A lot of people criticize me because they think that I can’t cut promos. You guys haven’t seen the promos that I have cut because on TV, things get edited and changed. I’ve been working so hard at my English too, my dictation, how smart I sound. I’m not cursing as much in Spanish. When my time comes, in the time that I become a champion, I want you guys to see it. It can be a coin toss. I’m prepared for success and failure. Failure will prepare me for a bigger thing, but I know I’m not going to fail. If it happened, it’s not the last you’ve seen of Thunder Rosa in or outside the ring. I’m always ready to win, but I’m prepared for the unknown. I could have shit on Britt Baker, she can say whatever she wants, I’m not worried about her. That’s the last of my thoughts. My thoughts are, when I achieve this, how am I going to make the division completely different? What difference am I going to make when I become a leader of the locker room? A real leader. That’s what I’ve been working on the last two years. How to become a real leader that leads with passion, compassion, and is ready to take on challenges, build other people up, represent others instead of just representing me as a doctor or whatever. I’m ready to represent the people. They call me the people’s champ. Is that trademarked? If not, I’m going to start using it,” she said with a laugh.
