Appearing on a Pro Wrestling Junkies Q&A, Rosa confirmed she had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.

"I traveled the whole pandemic. Unfortunately, I got COVID at the beginning of the year. I was able to go through it well and now I got my vaccine. I'm waiting to get the other one and I'm still being cautious," she said.

Rosa and Baker would have their singles match at AEW Beach Break on February 2. The bout was won by Baker.

They would have their rematch at AEW St. Patrick's Day Slam on March 17 in an Unsanctioned Lights Out bout. Rosa would score the win after a bloody and brutal match.

Rosa continues to perform on AEW television and NWA while also running Mission Pro Wrestling.
