Speaking with Denise Salcedo, she would say that she is very proud of what she and Britt Baker were able to do end she is proud that women are getting the chance to showcase more of what they can do in AEW.

"I'm very thankful that I was one of the people chosen to do something like this. I honestly, never thought it would have the impact that it had, not only in the AEW women's division, but women's wrestling in general. That genre of wrestling has existed for a long time and many women have been part of it. One that comes to mind is LuFisto, she did a lot of hardcore matches and because she wasn't at a big stage, didn't get the recognition she deserves because she's gone through hell and back to get women's wrestling here. There are so many women in Japan, I've been studying a lot of those matches from the 90s and 80s, these women have been doing it for a long time. It just happened that, the public was ready to see something like this in a mainstream place and we were able to deliver and because of that, a lot of the women in AEW feel that now is the time to showcase a lot more that they can do," Rosa said.

Rosa also took some time to spotlight the Tag Team Street Fight between The Bunny and Penelope Ford against Tay Conti and Anna Jay that took place on New Year's Eve 2021.

"We can talk another match on New Year's Eve with Bunny, Penelope (Ford), Tay (Conti), and Anna Jay. They did a street fight. The risks that we're taking now, you see more no DQ matches and street matches. Now it's always, 'are you going to bring a table? Are you going to bring a chair?' It's just special occasions only, calm down [laughs]. Just because I did it, doesn't mean I'm going to do it all the time. I feel it has to be a special occasion and it has to tell a story. If I'm going to pull something like that, it has to mean something. Although I break kayfabe a lot, psychology is so important to me. It's one of the things I pride myself in when I wrestle men or women, the build-up of the story. It's important for people to be drawn to it. We're demanding more stories for ourselves and we're ready to work and want to put the work in. That's what I hear a lot in the AEW locker room. We're all ready to work, make each other look good, and be part of the change," said Rosa.
