Posted By James Walsh on 07/22/21

A new report has some additional details on how Thunder Rosa’s signing with AEW came about. Fightful Select reports that Rosa’s NWA contract ran through the summer, and that AEW orchestrated a buyout of her deal. Sources in the NWA said that Rosa had asked for her release last year but had been denied.

The site adds that AEW and Tony Khan in particular are very careful about avoiding contact tampering and made sure everything was on the up-and-up.
