    I’m glad Rosa’s working toward a full recovery but since it was brought up I also have to comment that I liked her since her Diva Search days because of her passion and charisma. The first thing she worries about is the condition of her body recognizing she’s a wrestler. That was compeling to me.

  • DivaDerby

    Rosa could likely sue. As she said, her body is her job, which allows her to sue for a lot of money.
