Thunder Rosa reacts after being stripped of the AEW World Women’s Championship

Tonight’s (Nov. 23) episode of Dynamite included the surprising news that Tony Khan decided to strip Thunder Rosa of the AEW World Women’s Championship. He also retroactively removed the “interim” label that has been in use for the women’s champions ever since Rosa took a leave of absence from AEW in August due to injury.

While most of AEW’s backstage drama over the past few months has centered around CM Punk and The Elite, Rosa has also been a lightning rod at times with accusations of working hard and sandbagging her opponents in the ring. There were even rumors that she had heat backstage for not dropping the AEW Women’s Title to someone else on the roster before she took time off.

With all of this in mind, Rosa kept things civil and respectful when responding to the news that she is no longer the AEW Women’s World Champion:

Rosa agrees that the interim status should go and seems cool with Jamie Hayter leading the way as the new AEW World Women’s Champion.

Do you think AEW should rethink the way it uses the interim tag going forward, Cagesiders?
