Indie promotion pulls Nyla Rose due to COVID-19

Jan 19, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

AEW star Nyla Rose has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The Enjoy Wrestling promotion took to Twitter today to announce that Rose has been pulled from Saturday’s Striking Distance event at Mr. Smalls Theatre in Millvale, Pennsylvania due to a positive COVID-19 test. Rose was scheduled to wrestle Edith Surreal at the event.

“Welp, we have some bad news. Nyla Rose has contracted COVID and will not be able to participate in Striking Distance this Saturday. This is obviously upsetting, but what can you do? Shit happens. We wish @NylaRoseBeast a speedy recovery and are working to find a replacement,” the promotion wrote.

Rose has not commented on Enjoy’s Twitter announcement as of this writing.

Rose did media in Washington, DC earlier this week to promote tonight’s AEW Dynamite from the Entertainment & Sports Arena, and it was noted that this would be a homecoming for the former AEW Women’s World Champion. The appearance likely has been nixed due to the COVID-19 diagnosis.

Rose last wrestled on Friday’s AEW Rampage, teaming with Penelope Ford and The Bunny for a win over Kris Statlander, Red Velvet and Leyla Hirsch. Before that, Rose had only worked one other match in 2022, and that was a tag team win with Emi Sakura over Skye Blue and Tina San Antonio on the January 10 edition of Elevation. Rose has not worked Dynamite since losing to Ruby Soho in the AEW TBS Title Tournament back on the December 22 Holiday Bash episode.

    Mind blowing to me that people play along with the false narrative that Nyla Rose is a woman. sick world we live in.

    @Roman,

    Says the walking pile of redundant protoplasm with the user name mocking someone who had cancer. Guess what kid, Nyla has undergone the procedures to genetically become a woman. Had you paid attention in biology, you’d know this.

    What biology class did you go too that you were taught males can become females. Not in this world

    Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Trans rights are human rights. Why the hell can’t a story about Nyla be posted without some a-hole(s) having to post transphobic nonsense? And why the hell does this site’s moderation allow it?

    @Jon
    If you didn’t learn about XX chromosomes and XY chromosomes or the SRY gene, you clearly attended a school that cut corners and did not fund any of its science or biology classes.

    Or, perhaps you attended a school that did not require you pass biology class in order to graduate.

    I’m thinking you weren’t required to take a biology class.

    I mean, I’m all for trans rights and everything, but legitimately, I hate it when people try to bring science into this. Just because they had a procedure done to remove or add something, that doesn’t make them the other gender based on science. The genes which make up your genetic profile determine that, and in nylas case, she has male genes. So scientifically, she is still, and always will be a man.

    Now, does any of this matter? No. If nyla identifies as a woman, then she’s a woman. Who are any of us to care or tell her otherwise?

    You can take a Corvette and make it look similar to a Ferrari. That doesn’t make it a Ferrari.
