The main event of last night’s AEW Dynamite: St. Patrick’s Day Slam was Britt Baker taking on Thunder Rosa in a Unsanctioned Lights Out/Anything Goes Match. The long rivalry between the two AEW stars hit a climax at the end of the show.
Thunder Rosa picked up the pinfall victory after hitting a thunder driver off the apron and through a table. The wild match saw both wrestlers get busted open — Baker, in particular. Along with chairs, tables, and a ladder, thumbtacks were also introduced into the match with Baker taking a powerbomb on them at one point in the bout. Rosa picked up the pin fall victory after hitting a thunder driver off the apron and through a table.
AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida was seen watching on a monitor in the back, so it’s possible the winner of this match may take her on in the near future.
After her win, an emotional Rosa spoke to Tony Schiavone on the AEW Dynamite Post-Show.
“I’m very emotional right now,” said Rosa, while trying to hold back tears. “This means everything to me. As you guys know, I come from nothing. And seven months ago I came here [from NWA] to make a statement: and that was to put women’s wrestling on the map.”
She continued, “And tonight, with blood, sweat, and tears, I just showed you that women should be valued everywhere. And I’m very proud of this.”
Rosa, still under contract with NWA, thanked AEW fans for embracing her and believing in the Thunder Army.
“Thank you everybody for believing in me and the Thunder Army.”
