Fightful Select reported Thursday that Rosa did not appreciate the actions of Ivelisse and “real strikes were exchanged.” The talk among the wrestlers in the locker room was said that the two stars had been having issues before the bout.
Since working for AEW, Rosa has been helping train some of the female wrestlers alongside Dustin Rhodes. Rosa is known to lay her strikes in, which is something that some wrestlers prefer.
Many AEW officials and talent told the media outlet that Rosa was in a position to not only protect herself but also the NWA as she was representing the promotion in the match since their title was on the line.
It was said that the AEW locker room and staff are in support of Rosa as one person said that they were surprised to find out that a tag team match was booked involving Ivellese and Rosa for next week by the time of this week’s show went on the air as they figured AEW would make an edit to the broadcast and change the upcoming match.
Rosa will team with AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida against Ivelisse and Diamante.
