Thunder Rosa, who is the current AEW Women’s World Champion, after beating Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. in a Steel Cage Match during the St. Patrick’s Day Slam episode of AEW Dynamite to win the championship, has been put on the sidelines due to a back injury and it was revealed that she will not be medically cleared to defend her title at AEW’s All Out PPV Event. It would then be revealed that an Interim AEW Women’s World Title Match will take place at the All Out PPV between Jamie Hayter, Hikaru Shida, Toni Storm and Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., which was ultimately won by Toni Storm.
Rosa recently released a new vlog on her YouTube channel, in which she provided an update on the back injury she suffered that forced her to take time away from AEW in-ring action. According to Rosa, she recently had her first treatment at the South Texas Spine & Joint Institute after being injured for 6 weeks and her treatment will also last for about six weeks, which she has to appear four times a week for. Thunder Rosa also said not doing any kind of traveling has actually made a huge difference.
This is what Thunder Rosa said:
“Hello everyone, sorry I’ve been gone. I just came back from my little break. I’m here at the South Texas Spine & Joint Institute with Dr. Kaiser. He is the one who helped me out, find out that I had a back injury. I’ll be coming here pretty often. I’ve been treated by him for over four years so he knows me very well. […] So I just had my first treatment. It’s gonna be six weeks, just to start. I’m going to be here four times a week.”
“I’ve been up and about all day, since like eight in the morning. I’m doing my first physical therapy session today. This is after six weeks of being injured. Not traveling has actually made a huge difference.”
