Thunder Rosa recently reacted to her not being in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament while Deonna Purrazzo got a spot in it. Purrazzo will face Hikaru Shida in the first round of the tournament and Rosa, who has had a heated feud with Purrazzo spoke about her rival being in the tournament over her on Busted Open Radio.

“To add more insult to injury, I looked at [Dynamite] this Wednesday [and] the Owen Hart, and my name wasn’t even there,” she said (h/t to per Wrestling Inc). “And I’m like ‘Okay, that’s fine.’ And then I see her damn name…She not only beat me on Saturday, but she took my place.”

Rosa continued, “But that’s okay…I don’t need a tournament to show that I can go to Wembley. One way or another, I’m going to go to Wembley. I don’t need the tournament to get another opportunity for the Women’s World Title, because I know I can do it again with no damn tournament. I’m above that.”

The winner of the men’s and women’s Owen Hart Tournaments will get world title shots at All In.
