Thunder Rosa Confirms She’s Under Contract With NWA For Another Year

Thunder Rosa NWA Women's World Title

Despite speculation on the future of Thunder Rosa, she has confirmed that she’s under contract with the NWA for another year.

Since losing the NWA Women’s Championship there has been a lot of talk about what the future looks like for Thunder Rosa, but for now, that appears to be the NWA.


Thunder Rosa recently spoke with Busted Open Radio where she confirmed her status with NWA and stated that she’s looking to raise her value as a wrestler right now.

“I am signed with NWA and have another year with them. When it’s my time, it’s gonna be my time. When my time comes, I’m not going to come as just another person on the roster, mark my words. I’m coming for everything and I’m coming to be on top, just like I did this first time. My value is going to be bigger because I’m going to be a better wrestler, cut better promos, my body is going to be chiseled, I’m going to have a better MMA record. I’m gonna be like, ‘This is all I have to offer, what do you have to offer me?’ That’s what I want when I go to a bigger company. I want them to want me,” she said.

When it comes to where she might go in the long-term future, Thunder Rosa spoke about how important her side projects are, which might play a big part in where she goes.

 Because of all the projects I have on the side, it has to be a place where I’m able to continue working on what I’m working on. If I’m able to do it with NWA, then NWA. If I’m able to do it with AEW, probably. Now knowing what WWE is doing with things we have on the side, it’s going to be very difficult for me to work on my personal projects. Sometimes, those personal projects are the things that bring you the most joy in life. I don’t want that joy to be taken away from money. If that’s what I have to sacrifice, I’d rather be happy than be a slave.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.)

Nick Aldis Discusses First Working With Kamille & Thunder Rosa Working For AEW

Published

Nick Aldis

Nick Aldis recently spoke with the Straight Talk Wrestling Podcast where he reflected on working with Kamille for the first time.

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion first started working with Kamille during his storyline with Cody Rhodes, while he admitted that originally he hoped to work with his wife, Mickie James, Kamille was someone who was brought to his attention.


“The whole story of the Chicago show [ALL IN] was that everything was in his [Cody Rhodes’] favor. It was his event, he picked the referee. He got to call his own shots and Brandi [Rhodes] interfered. So it was kind of like, we just kind of went — we just started there and went, ‘Okay, 2-out-of-3 Falls. Brian Hebner’s gonna be the referee this time, not Earl Hebner’ and then it was like, okay and then I said, ‘The major thing here is that Brandi got involved so, obviously it would have been great if I could’ve had Mickie [James] get involved but that wasn’t gonna be able to happen. She’s under contract to WWE.’ So I was kind of like, ‘Well, the next best thing’ and turned out to be a better thing in the long term was like, ‘Well what if I had a female enforcer?’ Because I wouldn’t have a valet, I wouldn’t have a romantic interest because again, everyone knows I’m married to Mickie so it’s like I always wanna do stuff that’s real, that feels authentic so I was kind of like, ‘But there’s no reason I can’t have a female enforcer specifically brought in to neutralize Brandi Rhodes’ and in describing this sort of character, Dave Lagana just said, ‘I know just the person. There’s someone I’ve been sort of keeping an eye on for the right time and the right spot, for the right moment and what about this girl [Kamille]?’ And God, they flew her out to Philadelphia I think to meet with me, just to sort of take her temperature on it and if we liked the fit, we’ll shoot some vignettes or whatever. I mean she just has a physical presence that’s second to none with women in the business and she just walks in and I’m right away, I’m just like, ‘Okay, yes, like 100 percent.’”

Aldis spoke about NWA allowing Thunder Rosa to work with AEW, which he says is bringing more eyeballs.

“Thunder Rosa, well, first of all, AEW reached out and specifically made that request because their women’s division needed — would benefit. Of course it did [benefit] and also, in spite of the fact that Rosa had done really well on her time in NWA Powerrr, she wasn’t as well established as the NWA Champion that I was, right? So it was kind of like — it made more sense [for her to go to AEW] and it was okay because the more eyeballs — she’s a phenomenal talent so the more eyeballs that could get on her, the better so that when we’re ready to operate again, we can take advantage of our asset.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)

Nick Aldis On If He Wants A Title vs. Title Match With Kenny Omega

Published

Nick Aldis

Nick Aldis recently spoke with MuscleMan Malcolm about if he’d be interested in facing Kenny Omega in a title vs. title match.

AEW is currently opening the ‘Forbidden Door’ to the professional wrestling world, with the company having ties with both IMPACT Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. This has led to some speculation about if the company would work with the NWA down the line.


Aldis spoke about whether or not he’d be interested in a match with Kenny Omega which would see the NWA World Heavyweight Champion go against the AEW World Champion. However, Aldis believes there needs to be more incentive than just the AEW World Title, but he did note that if the right number of zeros are on the contract, he’d consider it.

“He’d have to put all those other belts up for grabs because what’s in it for me? The money has to be great and there has to be stakes. You can have as many belts as you want, but there is only one Ten Pounds of Gold. It would be interesting as incentive to humiliate these Stans that are praising him as the savior as wrestling. I hold the championship that has been held by Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, what do I need to prove to anyone? He has a two-year-old belt. Very shiny and ostentatious. I’m sure it would look nice in a hip-hop video from the early 2000s. Maybe Sisqo, a tricked-out low-rider. If the fans want to see it, you can let whoever you know, know. If they put the right number on zeros on the contract, we’ll make it happen. Otherwise, it’s mental masturbation.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions)

Omega will be involved in a title vs. title match in the near future though when he goes one on one with IMPACT’s World Champion, Rich Swann at IMPACT’s Rebellion event on April 24th.
