Thunder Rosa Signs With All Elite Wrestling
Thunder Rosa is All Elite.
All Elite Wrestling made the announcement that they’ve signed Thunder Rosa on Thursday afternoon, posting the customary “All Elite” graphic along with an official welcome to the team.
Thunder Rosa and the NWA have both since commented on the announcement, posting their respective statements about the contract:
“Never in my life doubt that I would be where I want to be! Today one of the biggest accomplishments in my career has been announced! #lameramera Is FINALLY WHERE SHE BELONGS,” she wrote.
“She’ll always be #NWAFam for a lot of us, but we want to send love to @thunderrosa22 and wish her well in the next chapter of her journey. Go show ’em all what we already know,” the official NWA Twitter account added.

It was originally reported by NWA owner Billy Corgan that Thunder Rosa was under contract with the NWA through the end of 2021, but it’s unclear what led to her contractual status changing.
Thunder Rosa is a former NWA Women’s World Champion, and has been a regular on AEW programming over the past year. She was recently under contract with the NWA, but had a working agreement that allowed her to appear on other shows in addition to NWA Powerrr. She most recently appeared on IMPACT Wrestling’s Slammiversary pay-per-view as the surprise opponent of Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo.
