Thunder Rosa is vacating her International Princess title at Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling.
Rosa, who is also the NWA Women’s World Champion, revealed on social media that she is relinquishing the International Princess title as she is unable to travel to Japan due to COVID-19 restrictions. Rosa said she will come back to the Japanese promotion when the COVID-19 situation is over in an effort to regain the title.
“Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling fans. This is Thunder Rosa talking to you from Texas, USA. I am very sad that I am not here to say I am coming back to Tokyo Joshi this year. Unfortunately, I will not be able to defend my championship, thus I have to relinquish my championship, my International Princess championship back to Tokyo Joshi due to the COVID-19 situation. But fans, I want to make it real clear: I am coming back and I am not coming back just to visit. I am coming back to become the No. 1 contender for what was my championship. So whenever the COVID-19 situation is over, Thunder Rosa will return to Tokyo and I will return for what is rightfully mine,” Rosa said.
As I announced on #twitter due to the #covid19 I will no longer be able to fulfill my duties as your #tjpw International Princess Champion. But I will be back to Japan once all this is over and I will be the #1 contender for MY championship... see you soon TOKYO! #thunderrosa #undefeated #champion #lameramera #international
