“And I really wanted to address this because it has come to my attention, not from necessarily people that work in the place that I work, but some veterans have informed me that there is a widespread of lies going on in different parts, and I’m part of this rumors or whatever. And when I read these comments about the Interim Championship, they came to me as no surprise.”
Rosa pointed out how she hasn’t been on AEW TV in the last two months, but her name keeps being mentioned as, for the first month and a half, there was controversy around her and what she was and wasn’t doing. It was also people diminishing her work. She talked about it being hard to make a name for yourself as a Latina and not being a second-generation wrestler. She noted she is self-made.
“I had the great chance to work in many different companies where they believe in my work. And sometimes, it just takes one privileged person or someone with clout to like a tweet and destroy everything you’ve done. And again, it influences how fans see and perceive you as a wrestler. And this time, I remember a couple of weeks ago, we talked about how one of my co-workers had to come out and do a live feed, which I was ready to do a live feed on Wednesday, but I wanted to use Busted Open instead. And I wanted to say that it is important for you guys if you don’t hear it from me. Just don’t say anything.
“If you’re in the back and you’re in distress about me being the champion and me being called the champion. I don’t call the shots. I have a boss, and there’s a booker in our office that make the decisions. So if you are distraught about what is being booked, maybe you should talk to the booker and keep my name out of your mouth. I mean, it is really hard when people are approaching you, and they’re still asking you because I have some friends that still ask me if I’m faking an injury. And I’m telling you these rumors are started by one or two people, and they just spread out, and it’s not fair.”
Rosa stated she doesn’t feel like another wrestler has gone through this and is sick of it. She stated it’s hard to manage some of this stuff, but she will, despite how much it hurts her. Rosa also said that she shows footage on her Youtube channel of her being in a doctor’s office and explaining what’s going on.
“And as a matter of fact, in a week or two, I’m getting another epidural so I can go on back to training because I want to get back in the ring. I want to get back in the ring, and that’s it. And I want to show you when they put the needle in my back so they can shut the f*ck up and stop saying that I am not hurt. That hurts because I’m trying to get out and trying to mentally get prepared to get back in the ring to get back and do what I love to do the most, which is professional wrestling.
But again, there’s certain people that cannot keep my name out of their mouths. I mean, am I that important in their lives for them to continue to create more and more rumors about what I’m doing or what am I not doing? I mean, Busted Open Nation.”
Rosa stated that people have nothing better to do then to create rumors instead of texting her directly, and it causes problems.
“Just keep my name out of your mouth and just shut up. If you have a problem, you know I’m transparent. What you see is what you get. That’s the truth.”
Rosa added, “What is the purpose to try to destroy somebody’s career or somebody’s status when they work so hard and the only thing that they’re trying to do is to feed their family? I am still hurt. They haven’t given me a time yet when I’m coming back. I’m saying it’s January, and I hope it is January. And again, if Toni Storm disagrees with what’s decided in the back, that’s not my problem. That is not my problem, Toni. And when I get better because I will still be the champion. If my boss lets me be the champion if he doesn’t, I will be okay with that decision too because I don’t make the rules. And that needs to be said.”
Rosa said that she is trying to get back to in-ring action and she feels Storm’s pain about being the interim champion.
