Thunder Rosa wins the AEW Women’s title on Dynamite

It took a couple of tries, but Thunder Rosa yesterday became the new AEW Women’s champion after she defeated Britt Baker in an excellent steel cage match which headlined the St. Patrick’s Day Slam episode of Dynamite on TBS.

With blood, thumbtacks, and chairs, Rosa finally was able to dethrone Baker with her Fire Thunder Driver finisher to win the match and the title. Rosa got the superstar entrance in her adoptive hometown of San Antonio with an all-women mariachi band introducing her and then confetti celebrating her win after a hard-fought match.

Rosa is the fifth AEW Women’s champion and ends Britt Baker’s impressive 290-day run as champion, a title show won back at the 2021 Double or Nothing pay-per-view on May 30.

The 35-year-old lost her title shot against Baker at the Revolution pay-per-view a few weeks ago but finally got her revenge yesterday. This was the second time that the two headlined Dynamite as last year they also got the top billing for the fantastic lights out match which Rosa won.
