Thunder Rosa nearly took a WWE referee position before joining AEW

Thunder Rosa spoke with Sportskeeda this week to talk about nearly joining the WWE, her thoughts on Jade Cargill, and explaining the significance of her face paint.

Thunder Rosa was asked if it was true that she almost took a job in WWE as a referee in the past:

“It is true. When you are in need of a job, when you’re tired of hustling and feel defeated, sometimes we call it trying to sell your soul to the devil, right?”

“I was going to do a nine to five and I didn’t want to do that. But yeah, that is true,” she said.

“God works in mysterious ways and it didn’t happen. So again, it’s like, we make choices, right? I made that choice because I had that and the offer was there. But then I have other choices and I was like, let me take the harder route, and I know I’m going to make it no matter what.”

Her thoughts on Jade Cargill and if she would like to face her in the ring:

“Yes, I love challenges. I know as the weeks progresses, she’s becoming a better opponent. She’s becoming a better athlete in the ring,” Rosa said.

“So I know from when I last faced her, which was in December, I think this will be a really, really, good match.”
