During the AEW Unrestricted podcast, AEW President Tony Khan talked about NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa working with his company:

    “Thunder Rosa is great. I hadn’t really thought about reaching out and booking Thunder Rosa. I was with Kenny Omega and Omega brought up when we were talking about contenders that he thought Thunder Rosa would be great, but she works for the NWA. I thought we could work something out. Billy (Corgan) said he thought it would be a great idea. He said he thinks all champions should be fighting champions so why shouldn’t their champion come in and challenge for our titles? We think Thunder Rosa is a very good wrestler and we will find out how Thunder Rosa and Shida stack up at All Out. I think it’s a great match. It was a fun one to book and I was glad to put it on the card.”
