Thunder Rosa hasn’t been seen on AEW Dynamite for some time due to an injury that forced her to be on time off for the time being. Due to the uncertainty of her comeback, many fans speculated whether AEW management will take a step against her and strip her from the championship reign. The doubts appeared to be positive, after all.
Renee Paquette made a major announcement on AEW Dynamite
Renee Paquette announced during the latest episode of AEW Dynamite tonight that Thunder Rosa and AEW had reached an understanding and she would no more be known as the AEW Women’s World Champion, anymore,
“Due to the extent of the injuries to AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa, and the uncertainty of when she could return to action, AEW and Thunder Rosa have reached a mutual agreement. AEW management has been forced to ask Thunder Rosa to relinquish the championship. Thunder Rosa was a fighting champion for AEW, she’s willing to step aside for the benefit of AEW, but more specifically for all of the women of AEW.”
As a result, Jamie Hayter will no longer be recognized as an interim AEW Women’s Champion on AEW Dynamite. She and the previous interim champ Toni Storm will be recognized as former AEW Women’s World Champions, only, as per confirmations from AEW.
Following the announcement, Paquette would then introduce the new AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter for an interview segment on AEW Dynamite. Teaming up with her stablemate, Dr. Britt Baker, she also defeated the teams of Willow Nightingale & Skye Blue and Anna Jay & Tay Melo in a three-way match.
