• AEW Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa Reacts To Being Accused Of Sandbagging Her Opponent On Dynamite Last Week

On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa defeated Marina Shafir.

Former ROH wrestler Erick Stevens wrote the following about this match on Twitter:

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a match where somebody so obviously tried to make themselves look better than their opponent by sandbagging and no selling, but I just saw a perfect example of it on Dynamite.

It might just look like a bad match to the untrained eye but it’s pretty clear when somebody doesn’t want to play ball. Which sucks because it just makes you and your opponent look bad.”

Marina and former AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. went on to like Stevens’ tweet.

You can watch the footage from this match below:

Former AEW wrestler Ivelisse, who was once accused of being unprofessional during a match against Thunder Rosa, tweeted:

“I truly wholeheartedly appreciate all the recent ‘Ivelisse was right’ statements, hits the soul in ways you could never imagine.”

During an interview with Ariel Helwani, Rosa was asked if she really sandbagged Marina on Dynamite.

Below is what she said:

“No. I’m going to say like I said to the New York Post, I have nothing but respect for my opponents. Anyone who dares to stand in the ring with me, I have nothing but respect for my opponents and send them nothing but blessings.

Moving on forward I will continue to work harder to have the best matches I can bring and to bring the most opportunities to all of the women that are behind me.

When they step into the ring with me they’re like ‘cool.’ People are going to talk and that’s fine, I’m not worried about that. I will continue to move forward and I will continue to show with my body of work what I’m all about.

That’s all I have to say.”
