AEW women’s champion Thunder Rosa addresses claims that she has been “faking an injury”

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, AEW women’s champion Thunder Rosa discussed being out of action and rumors surrounding her absence…

“And I really wanted to address this because it has come to my attention, not from necessarily people that work in the place that I work, but some veterans have informed me that there is a widespread of lies going on in different parts, and I’m part of this rumors or whatever. And when I read these comments about the Interim Championship, they came to me as no surprise.”

“If you’re in the back and you’re in distress about me being the champion and me being called the champion. I don’t call the shots. I have a boss, and there’s a booker in our office that make the decisions. So if you are distraught about what is being booked, maybe you should talk to the booker and keep my name out of your mouth. I mean, it is really hard when people are approaching you, and they’re still asking you because I have some friends that still ask me if I’m faking an injury. And I’m telling you these rumors are started by one or two people, and they just spread out, and it’s not fair.”

“And as a matter of fact, in a week or two, I’m getting another epidural so I can go on back to training because I want to get back in the ring. I want to get back in the ring, and that’s it. And I want to show you when they put the needle in my back so they can shut the f*ck up and stop saying that I am not hurt. That hurts because I’m trying to get out and trying to mentally get prepared to get back in the ring to get back and do what I love to do the most, which is professional wrestling. But again, there’s certain people that cannot keep my name out of their mouths. I mean, am I that important in their lives for them to continue to create more and more rumors about what I’m doing or what am I not doing? I mean, Busted Open Nation.”

“Just keep my name out of your mouth and just shut up. If you have a problem, you know I’m transparent. What you see is what you get. That’s the truth.” (quotes courtesy of
