Report: WWE and AEW Both Trying to Sign Thunder Rosa

Thunder Rosa lost the NWA World Women's Championship to AEW's Serena Deeb on Tuesday night's edition of UWN Primtetime Live. And based on the latest Wrestling Observer reports, she's heading to either WWE or AEW in the near future. Rosa has worked in Stardom, Lucha Underground (as Kobra Moon), Ring of Honor, Women of Wrestling and Tokyo Joshi Pro, and back in January she defeated Allysin Kay at the Hard Times pay-per-view to win the NWA's women's title. Over the summer she arrived on AEW Dynamite, stepping up as Hikaru Shida's next challenger for the AEW Women's World Championship.

Rosa lost her shot against Shida at the All Out pay-per-view and has since popped up on Dynamite a couple of times, including an NWA title defense against Ivelisse.

Following his initial report, Meltzer went onto the F4WOnline message board and stated WWE was the frontrunner to sign the Mexican star (real name Melissa Cervantes)

"I think Rosa is going to WWE. I was told 2-3 weeks ago that Deeb was winning and Rosa was going to WWE and the first part just happened," Meltzer wrote. "If Rosa was going to AEW, she could keep her NWA Title."

If she goes to WWE, she'll be the second star recently featured on AEW television to get scooped up by the competition. After a impressive showing on a special edition of Late Night Dynamite, high-flyer Ben Carter reportedly recently signed with WWE.

Rosa is keeping quiet regarding the rumors on social media.
