Thunder Rosa Retains AEW at Double or Nothing

Melissa Cervantes, known by her ring name Thunder Rosa, is a Mexican and American professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist 

She signed to All Elite Wrestling, where she is the current AEW Women's World Champion in her first reign.

La Mera Mera defeated Serena Deeb at this evening’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The match was a competitive back-and-forth affair that saw Deeb nearly win the gold on several occasions, but Rosa in the end managed to pick up the victory.

This marks Rosa’s second successful world title defense since winning it from Britt Baker back in March. 

Rosa was rolled up at one point but kicked out and then Deeb locked in a hold and almost got her shoulder down but then Rosa reversed it.

Deeb broke free and delivered a kick to the midsection but Rosa hit a shoulder tackle and knocked her down. 

Rosa hit an arm drag and then a second one followed by a leg sweep and cover but Deeb kicked out.

Deeb fought back as both were up top, and Rosa brought her down with a Superplex but held on and went for the Fire Thunder Driver and got the pin and the win.
