Views: 73 | Updated On: | By Combat Team

AEW President Tony Khan stated that he had planned to bring Thunder Rosa back and give her a chance to defend her title, Khan said that he would have to take a decision once he gets a better timeline for her return.

At the pay-per-view, Jamie Hayter defeated Toni Storm to win the title. Storm previously won the gold at AEW All Out after reigning AEW Women's World Champion Thunder Rosa announced she was unable to defend the title. Since then, AEW has had an interim champion, with Jamie Hayter defeating Storm to win the gold on November 19 at AEW Full Gear.

At the AEW Full Gear post-show media scram, WrestleZone's Bill Pritchard asked Khan about the interim status of the title in light of Rosa's injury, to which Khan replied that the status was still under consideration. He added that they would have to take a decision on the title once they have a better update on the timeline for Rosa's return.

“Well it’s a new championship reign, absolutely. I have been evaluating that, and it’s something we’re taking under consideration,” Khan said. “We certainly have been trying to give Thunder Rosa every opportunity to come back and defend the championship. It’s been a few months now, and when we get a better timeline for her return, I’ll have to make a decision about whether to continue with the interim or to make the interim champion possibly some kind of an opportunity to be done the lineal champion.”
