Why Thunder Rosa’s WWE Debut Will Change Women’s Wrestling

Another good old fashioned talent poaching.

As first speculated by Wrestling News Observer, former NWA Women’s Champion and AEW guest star, Thunder Rosa, is seemingly on her way to Stamford.

Who is Thunder Rosa?

Outside of AEW’s stacked Women’s roster, Rosa is the biggest female wrestling star on the planet, having recently put together a dream match against Hikaru Shida at All Out. Fans are more than ready to see more from her in the big leagues.

With Rosa dropping the NWA Women’s title to Serena Deeb, this leaves a lot of potential avenues open to her should Rosa seek greater fame. NWA has done a great job at building her up as one of the hottest prospects in women’s wrestling, so wherever she chooses to take her services next will be rubbing their grubby hands together when they see the star power she brings with her.

Where will she sign?

According to Dave Meltzer, both mainstream promotions have a vested interest in signing the star from Tijuana. Although further reports suggest that if she was considering signing with Tony Khan, then there would have been no need for her to drop the title to Deeb, suggesting that the WWE deal is more likely.

This would be a huge get for WWE, whether they choose to bump her straight to the main roster or allow her to get to grips with the sports-entertainment style down in NXT. Either way, she’d be a huge addition to the women’s roster, which is already seeing some fresh talent flourishing in the likes of Ember Moon, Toni Storm and Bianca Belair. Thunder Rosa would add a whole new dynamic to the scene, bringing a slightly more throwback style of wrestling to the show.

With so many potential marquee feuds on the horizon against the likes of Asuka, Rhea Ripley and any of the Four Horsewomen, Thunder Rosa could very well be looking at the biggest chapter of her wrestling career as part of WWE.
