Thunder Rosa Says She Turned Down WWE Tryout As A Referee

Sep 7, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

In an interview with Fightful, Thunder Rosa revealed that she turned down a tryout with WWE last year, which would have only been in the role of a referee. Here are highlights:

On turning down a WWE tryout:

“I was supposed to go, last September, for a referee try out. That was like a week before I signed my contract for MMA. That was in WWE. Dorian, the hurricane, happened and my things kept getting canceled, getting canceled and then I was getting too close for me to sign my contract for my fight and I was already training. I had like three months training.

I was like, “I can’t wait.” One week’s too long for me not to train. I just sent them an e-mail saying, “Thanks for the opportunity, hopefully we can work something out in the future,” and I left it as that. That happened my career skyrocketed ‘cause we made it happen. But, yeah, man. It’s insane. But, other than that, I never got any e-mails or interest or nothing.”
