THUNDER ROSA: Thunder Rosa on Zelina Vega at Backlash: “Every time I watch it I cry”

Posted on 5/14/123 by Colin Vassallo

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, former
AEW Women’s champion Thunder Rosa said
that she really cried when she saw
Zelina Vega’s entrance at Backlash in
Puerto Rico last week.

Born in Tijuana, the 36-year-old said
that wrestling has been great in
representation lately and it’s wonderful
that certain individuals have been able
to represent their countries and
represent their culture in positive way.

“When Zelina Vega came out I really
cried,” Rosa said. “It was such a
beautiful moment.”

Rosa also remembered when she first met
Vega during a STARDOM run in 2015 and
she was struggling, but lat week it was
full circle for her with her people in
Puerto Rico.

“Even though she didn’t win the title,
she won even more than that,” Rosa

The former champ however admitted that
while she has wrestled in Mexico many
times over the years, she’s doubtful she
would ever get the chance for such a
powerful moment as Vega had in Puerto

“Every time I watch it I cry,” Rosa
said. “I don’t know if I will ever get
to do something as big as that.”
