The 2nd ever AEW.ONE Wrestler of the Month for the month of July 2022, is…
Winner: Thunder Rosa
It’s a pretty safe bet that the World Champion would be a strong candidate for “Wrestler of the Month” honours, although last month Thunder Rosa was narrowly edged out by Toni Storm. With a record of 2-1-0 for the month, Thunder Rosa represented AEW in Japan, taking on Miyu Yamashita in Tokyo Joshi Pro-Wrestling and then came home and defended her title on Dynamite against the same opponent. ThunderStorm also tagged in a successful match against Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir. It was a good month for La Mera Mera!
Runner-up: Toni Storm
June’s Wrestler of the Month just finishes under her tag team parter Thunder Rosa. Toni went undefeated in July (3-0-0) winning the aforementioned tag team match as a part of ThunderStorm as well as defeating Nyla Rose 1-on-1 on Rampage and beating Emi Sakura on Dark Elevation.
Runner-up: Mercedes Martinez
The ROH Women’s Champion had my match of the month versus Serena Deeb at Death Before Dishonor, gave an excellent showcase on Dark for rookie J-Rod and, back when they were tagging, she and Serena squashed some jobbers on Rampage, going 3-0-0 for the month. Hopefully after their war in ROH, we’ll see her and Serena patch up their differences and reform their tag team.
Runner-up: Serena Deeb
Serena went 3-1-0 in July, with her loss coming at the hands of Mercedes Martinez. She was awesome in that match however and showed not just skill and ability but desperation and aggression. Deeb also defeated Anna Jay on Rampage in Anna’s home town.
Runner-up: Marina Shafir
Marina is the workhorse of the women’s division going 4-1-0 with her only loss coming at the hands of ThunderStorm in tag team action. The 4 wins were against “enhancement talent” on Dark/Elevation but she’s getting the reps and coming out on top.
