As PWS Bombshells and Ring Warriors Battling Bombshells Champion
"I have no limits, until you disrespect me."

Born in Dorado on Borinquen and hailing from Caimito, San Juan, Nilka García Solís (born November 14, 1981) swam at the Puerto Rican Naval base, performed at PR & El Show del Medio Dia as a dancer, got roles on El Casco de San Juan and El Show de Sunshine Logroño as an actress, appeared in music videos for companies like Saavedra Productions, served as a trainer for Body Fit Concept on Canal 7 Tele Isla and The Spot in West Park Florida, and established Labusadora Training Center back in Puerto Rico. She fought as a boxer for two years before training for Mixed Martial Arts and Professional Wrestling with El Profe, Ricky Santana, Tommy Diablo and Carlos Colón.

As far as professional wrestling goes, she also got training from Pablo Márquez and debuted in 2003 as Black Rose, managing clientele ranging from Street Fugitives to the affluent Huracan Castillo Jr in WWC, New Revolution Wrestling Lucha Libre and other organizations that became tied to the World Wrestling League. She also wrestled in the Puerto Rican half of the International Wrestling Association and captured WWC's women's title four times.

La Rosa Negra later wrestled in the continental USA for then NWA member Ring Warriors, where she was the first to hold their Battling Bombshells Title and represented them with it in various Canadian, Dominican and Bolivian promotions. She also won the Pro Wrestling Syndicate Bombshells title and later became the first holder of the PWS Bombshells Majestic title. She's also worked with Florida boxer Noemi Bosques in SHINE and FUW, fought in Mexico's LLF, been through several Japanese promotions, winning the High Speed Championship belt at World Wonder Ring ST★RDOM, the CWS Women's belt back in Puerto Rico, then the Mission Pro Wrestling title belt and Magic City Wrestling Women's Title belt in the States.

She's not to be confused with the masked Rosa Negra of CMLL nor The Black Rose Nikki Adams of the same PWS and Valkyrie promotions. Or the female lead of the first generation of .hack games either.

Rompe abusadora, con tropes batidora!

  • Advertised Extra: Almost all the Carib talent were initially this in Ring Warriors. To be fair to Ring Warriors in this instance, their first show was the same month La Rosa came to the continental US. However, when La Rosa continued to not get booked and Ring Warriors did not include her on the bracket to become the first Battling Bombshells Champion, La Rosa crashed the first Ring Warriors Bahamas show in Nassau and challenged the winner of the first round match between Santana Garrett and Sienna Duvall. Ring Warriors gave Negra an empty arena exhibition match with Duvall, and after she won scrapped the entire tournament and decided the first champion in a three way dance between Duvall, Negra and Su Yung. Naturally she was advertised and booked as champion.
  • Afro Asskicker: During her CWS Women's title reign she let her hair curl until it was a fro after being burnt again put her off her hair iron. She regained her heat tolerance after a few months, but came to prefer the fro and needs business incentive to straighten it again.
  • Animal Motifs: What else is small, noisy, jumps a lot and can be found by the water? Rose eventually embraced this and got a coquí tatoo. During STARDOM Mask Fiesta 2015 ~ Halloween Party she got one last shot against Thunder Rock(that year) as "Scorpio Rosa".
  • Arch-Enemy: Rico Suave became this in WWC after he turned on Bronco #1 and attempted to have Black Rose taken out by La Bella Carmen, Lady Demonique\Demonik, and or Sexy Juliette, before mercilessly beating her himself. Later in IWA it became La Amazona and her replacement tag team partner, Leandra.
  • Aside Glance: Given how many themes La Rosa Negra has used, this was the response she had when Ring Warriors managed to play a theme she never had before or was adverse to during her entrances or victories.
  • Badass Family: Her mom and sister do taekwondo, her dad did track and field, her three uncles are boxers, Julian Solís in particular being a world bantam weight champion.
  • Badasses Wear Bandanas: Besides her Puerto Rican flag bandana, she also started wearing a black Bandana around her leg in mid 2014 till Leva Bates stole it (Leva's gimmick involves dressing as others and imitating them, though it's doubtful Rosa was flattered). Wore them in coordination with Amanda Rodriguez after becoming her manager.
  • Bash Brothers: With Los Compadres, El Bronco #1 and Rico Suave as well as their other valet, Destiny. With Los Fugitivos de la Calle, Niche and Lynx in WWC (but not in IWA). Also Sensacional Carlitos (not that one, the one who married Sweet Nancy) and Jumping Jeff Jeffrey. Samuel Olmo in the music videos.
  • Braids of Action: She sometimes wrestled in cornrows. Also partially braided her Afro after returning to STARDOM.
  • The Cameo: Even when not under contract with WWC, Black Rose could sometimes be seen in the crowd cheering on El Bronco #1. Also, while wrestling for IWA Puerto Rico she appeared in some ads for Exotic Fitness Studio's pole dancing classes. She's briefly appeared on Ring of Honor television due to her friendship with Sumie Sakai, Kris Wolf and Hana Kimura. She wasn't a pageant participant, but she was still featured on the 2021 Road To Miss World thanks to Miss Puerto Rico Aryam Díaz Rosado happening to know her.
  • Canon Discontinuity: For as much of a canon authority Black Rose is anyway. She's technically won WWC's Women's Title belt four times but doesn't consider one of her losses valid. WWC's youtube channel seemed to treat the match where she beat Serena Deeb for the vacant title as a defense and extension of her third reign rather than the start of a fourth, but LAWE promoted her as a four time champion nonetheless.
  • Cheap Heat: Took a fan's Angel Rose sign at a U Know Pro event and ripped it in two.
  • Christmas Episode: In 2006, Black Rose participated in two Christmas in Puerto Rico shows for IWA. La Rosa Negra gave out candy canes and presents to the children in attendance during the last Ring Warriors show under the NWA banner.
  • Comedic Underwear Exposure: When Black Rose was pantsed while trying to escape from La Bella Carmen and Fantasy
  • Cosplay: At Animate Miami 2013, she wrestled as Storm alongside Tommy Vandal as Mario against Angel Rose as Electra and Johnny Vandal as the Terrorist.
  • Cowardly Lion: After her first loss to Sweet Nancy and the post match attack by her, Morena and Killer Kat, Black Rose was initially wary of facing Nancy again. But when the bell rung to start a match she always took the fight to Nancy until it was rung to stop the match, in one instance running away after pining Nancy! Black Rose even issues challenges to wrestlers she's openly afraid of(especially if they have title belts).
  • Crowd Chant: When barked at by U Know Pro's crowds she barked back, but didn't take kindly to "She's a hood rat!". Barks went on to become a pro La Rosa "chant".
  • Crowd Song: During her Knockout Room debute La Rosa Negra tried to get the crowd to sing along to Yaga Mackie's La Batidora, which proved beyond the largely gringo audience, though they did start chanting to the beat.
  • Cute Bruiser: Black Rose might have a tendency to cartwheel to ring (and sometimes Spin-A-Roonie), but once she's in it she relies on forearms, elbows, clotheslines and fireman’s carries.
  • Dance-Off: Black Rose did not just strive to be a better wrestler than Barbie Boy, but also to outdo him in the art of dance. Sojourner Bolt coxed her into a dance off at SHINE… and then took La Rosa Negra by the hair while her back was turned. "Portugal's Perfect Athlete" Shanna failed to live up to her moniker when she competed with La Rosa in dance.
  • Dance Sensation: Lead many friends and fans in the Harlem Shake at Women Of Wrestling Puerto Rico. Shawn Prime led an attack to prevent her from doing the same in Future Of Wrestling, which is just as well, since Negra apparently hadn't seen the original yet.
  • Dare to Be Badass: She was singled out among WWC's audience by Rico Suave, who told her she had a good body for wrestling and dared her to try it. She refused on the grounds she didn't actually like wrestling and had no idea how to. After finding her in the crowd the next week, Suave declared that she had accepted his dare and couldn't back out. After watching herself on television punching Stacy Colon, she decided wrestling was worth learning and appeared every weekend, becoming an established valet of Los Compadres.
  • Determinator: Rosa received a concussion from a Su Yung power bomb that left her unable to stand for more than a few seconds at a time but managed to finish the match with a frog splash before falling out of the ring. She got up and attempted to walk out of the arena with her Battling Bombshells belt several times, managing to get beyond the curtain before referee Frankie Gastineau came to her aid. Then there was STARDOM Appeal The Heart #2 where catching Datura in midair appeared to break Rosa's knee but she came back from a suplex to finish Datura with a death valley bomb and frog splash on one leg. Then at the hospital it was revealed both knees were broken, Rosa had just stood, jumped and hoisted up her opponent on one of them anyway!
  • Do with Him as You Will: Her loss of the Battling Bombshell's title was recognized even after referee Bruce Ownens admitted to missing Sienna Duvall grabbing La Rosa Negra's tights during the pin. Then FOW's crowd cheered her on as she threatened to punch out referee Fernando Jiminez after Sienna Duvall hit Rosa with a chair and he would not allow Rosa to strike back with it. Turned out there was some confusion, as it wasn't illegal to use chairs in FOW, who hosted the event, but was in Ring Warriors who the title belonged to. So Ring Warriors put the two in a street fight on a Bahamas show.
  • Eloquent in My Native Tongue: She and contemporary WWC migrants to the 50 States were teased for their limited grasp of English as they tried to establish themselves. While La Morena and La Amazona could effectively shut this down, it was practically a running gag among La Rosa Negra's opponents, even fellow Puerto Rican Niya Barela.
  • Enemy Mine
    • With Génesis and the Colóns when New Wrestling Stars and New Empire invaded WWC. Black Rose also proved more tolerable to Stacy Colón than Tigresa at the 2015 Euphoria.
    • A shaky case with La Morena, whose intent to take revenge on Killer Kat and Debbie Ross lead to an alliance with Black Rose. Morena managed to tolerate her again "So Ring Warriors could be successful".
    • Invoked at FOW, where La Amazona was punished for an earlier attack on La Rosa Negra by having Leilani Kai referee their title match, based on the fact Amazona had already lost to Kai at a Ring Warriors event.
  • Evil Counterpart
    • To Sumie Sakai in PWS. "Petite" veterans from islands where not much English is spoken, who tend to stretch the rules to their limits yet are also eager for audience approval, both providing copious amounts of Fanservice as if it were second nature, even using many of the same moves, albeit in different ways. PWS crowds finding Sakai funny was the difference. However their most climactic encounter was the finals of Valkyrie's International Joshi Grand Prix, which lacked the dynamic and Sakai then became good friends with La Rosa in Oedo~tai.
    • She and Amazing Kong were temporarily setup as such to the Backseat Girlz. Annie Social being another smallish wrestler just as well known for managerial duty and The Amazing one was called into PWS specifically to keep Missy Sampson away from La Rosa Negra.
  • Face Palm: A double palmed one during a March 2013 tag match, which was more out of anguish than annoyance or frustration, after a worn down Sweet Nancy tried to roll away from a top turnbuckle splash from Leandra but got hit anyway.
  • Fanservice Model: Early in her career this was her main role in the tradition of WWC's Dominican valets, even though she was just a Puerto Rican valeting for a Dominican man. She's never completely moved past it either, still doing shoots for companies like Contralona PR.
  • Fighting Your Friend
    • She pitted a reluctant Niche against Lynx at WWC's 2011 EUFORIA Tour and then ordered him to keep attacking his former partner after Niche lost the match.
    • It was turned against her when Hudson Envy made La Rosa prove her worth as a tag team partner by tagging with her against DASH Chisako...and Rosa's then closest friend in Oedo~tai Star Fire.
  • Finishing Move: Makes use of the rarely seen leg cradle. Rare for cradles themselves, she applies it as a submission more often than a pin. More commonly, La Rosa Negra uses a frog splash (sometimes called the Rose, Scorpion or Coquí splash after her tattoos). More rarely still, "la espina negra", a grounded chicken wing arm scissor combo with the scissor transitioned to an ab stretch neck crank combo while maintaing the arm bar; Mission Pro commentators dubbed it "the black thorn" after seeing it a second time.
  • Friendly Enemy: Infernal KAORU frequently tries to one up Oedo~tai and her W-Fix stable is opposed by Mabutachi 2 Manjimanji. Still KAORU first met La Rosa as a teammate in spite of her affiliations. When they inevitably had matches against each other, Rosa could never do better than a draw, and voiced frustration with KAORU always hitting her with foreign objects. KAORU responded by inviting La Rosa out to dinner. La Rosa accepted, deciding to leave their differences in the ring.
  • Friendship Moment: When La Rosa Negra challenged for the High Speed Title, her and Star Fire's attempt to keep their match clean immediately broke down. But when Star Fire twisted her knee while countering an inverted face lock, La Rosa Negra was hesitant to continue the match and though she ultimately finished the severely slowed Star Fire, La Rosa carried her to the locker room once the bell rang.
  • Funny Background Event: During her title defenses against Santana Garrett, La Rora Negra's manager Rihanna Alli could be seen arguing with or chasing Fabulous Frank, at one point pacing back and forth with Rosa Negra's Battling Bombshells belt as if she was the champion. (Frank was trying to steal it)
  • Funny Foreigner
    • She tried to be an evil Boricua in LLF but was greeted with a "Puerto Rico" chant immediately and her attempts to rile up the crowd just resulted in disappointed silence rather than heat. She was presented as a tecnica against Sádica and Tsumami to much better reactions and engaged in Ham-to-Ham Combat with them and Sadik Maiden. She expressed affection for Japan the moment she arrived for World Wonder Ring STARDOM from LLF. At the same time there were several aspects of the culture she bulldozed through, such as when she encountered sushi and completely missed the point, storing it to cook later as a fish salad.
    • Her role in Marvelous. During La Rosa's debut match Roni Nicole had the audience laughing at Rosa's expense but Rosa decided to roll with it while she beat Nicole. Defied in SEAdLINNNG, where she was laughed at while losing to Arisa Nakajima and wanted to hurt Nakajima to save face.
  • Gimmick Matches: To name a few, Black Rose beat Sexy Juliette in an NWS mud pool match and then had to wrestle José Chaparro right after it. NWS also gave her a hardcore rules match with Demonique, IWA gave her one with Amazona, along with a Lumberjack match. WWC gave her a steel cage match with Génesis and a broom match with La Bella Carmen. U Know Pro gave her a triple threat steel cage with Didi Cruz and Angel Rose.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Sometimes wrestled with them in NWS, WWC and STARDOM. She wore braided pigtails while refereeing Tom Danniels vs Amazona at NRW Lucha Libre.
  • Girly Bruiser: She'll gladly take a hit but she'll be livid if you take her hair iron or extensions, or mistake her extensions for a weave, or a wig.
  • Girl on Girl Is Hot: In 2020, LFC flew her in for their thirtieth event and she got in the mood by walking around while holding one of their champions(Joelene Hexx) in a Bridal Carry and kissing her on the chest. Averted at first with Holidead, whom La Rosa liked but was too frightened by to make their up close interactions "hot". However, a year in Mission Pro Wrestling and some prodding from Jazz relaxed La Rosa with Holidead enough to recreate a scene from Lady and the Tramp with a cheese stick following FEW's Say It Loud: All Black Everything.
  • Glass Jaw Referee: Started exploiting the trope against particularly tough challengers to her PWS belts, such as then SHIMMER Champion Cheerleader Melissa. Mickie James being the ref at Homecoming Havoc made it more difficult.
  • Groin Attack: Played like she was going to let Jorge Alonso bump and grind but then rammed her butt into his crotch, causing him to double over and be mocked by a passing fan. At times she's also substituted her signature gut elbow for a head drop to the crotch.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Not too noticeable when she's wrestling but she's been known to leave ringside for liquor while matches are in progress as a manager and isn't adverse to sharing even when her clients lose.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: We could have limited ourselves to this topic and still filled a whole page on her. Even limiting examples to Florida, she started Tweener in the NWA, in behavior and audience responses. Adding New Jersey, she became a "double champion" and defended one belt primarily as a face and the other primarily as a heel.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She keeps trusting jerkasses like Josie, Niya and Shanna in SHINE, which Lenny Leonard pointed out while Brandi Lauren beat her up. The only time it worked out was with Ivelisse.
  • Humiliating Wager: Lost a lucha de prendas to La Bella Carmen during the New Wrestling Stars and New Empire invasion when Juliette interfered to help Carmen strip Black Rose. She beat La Morena and Debbie Ross in a triple threat bra and panties match during WWC Honor vs. Traicion 2010. Black Rose and La Morena almost immediately stripped Ross and spent most of the match beating her up before Black Rose finally stripped Morena.
  • I Can Still Fight!
    • Her pleas for a SHINE 24 match were repeatedly denied after displaying "concussion-like symptoms" due to multiple brass knuckle strikes from Taylor Made. She had the same attitude after being injured by Malia Hosaka and Leilani Kai but relented and stuck to managing Amanda Rodriguez.
    • She was flown out of World Wonder Ring ST★RDOM to get surgery in the USA after tearing both of her knees in a match against Datura only to learn her insurance was not willing to pay for it. So she saw X Wrestling in Florida were willing to give her a contender's match with Su Yung and decided that if her knees didn't work she'd just use her hands. It took being burnt from shoulder to calf trying to stop a house fire to keep her out of matches, with Oedo~tai stablemates Holidead and Thunder Rosa fighting in her stead until new skin grew and the swelling went down.
  • Ignored Enemy: NRW Lucha Libre Champion Queen Adonis took exception to La Amazona and Black Rose ignoring him to fight each other. They eventually did grant his wish and fight him though.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Rad Chismo and the 88 Terras features Chismo passing by Mission Pro Wrestling in his travels through "The Multiverse" while La Rosa Negra is the champion, flanked by Alex Gracia, Red Velvet and Promise Braxton.
  • Insufferable Genius: La Rosa Negra's more like an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy but she provided a quote while on Reality Check of Caged Heat radio to Jorge Alonso that sums up the trope
    "No worries I respect all opinions, I respect whatever peoples say. So pero, I show you, you's wrong!"
  • It's Personal
    • Even after Black Rose's face turn, La Amazona had since turned the other way and specifically set out to hurt Génesis worse than Rose had. The most progress made was getting them to do smiling promotional stuff for Ring Warriors together, where Amazona even celebrated at Bombshells and Jingle Bells when La Rosa Negra won a symbolic victory for the company by pinning Kacee Carlise but Amazona then teamed up with Melissa Coates over their past issues with Rosa after the New Year rolled around.
    • La Rosa Negra really doesn't like Sienna Duvall, whom she feels has no respect for her people or culture. The Diva Beater Duvall in turn resents that La Rosa Negra has body building and fitness competition background (read: “modeling”).
    • La Rosa Negra takes offense to Amber Rodriguez calling herself a Boricua princess, insisting Rodriguez is not even from Puerto Rico. Also, Amber tried to steal her Ring Warriors title belt. La Rosa's even temporarily teamed up with Duvall against Amber and threw in her lot with the Backseat Girlz when Rodriguez's group, Strength In Numbers, offered her membership.
    • Despite Valkyrie's SHINE 18 attack, she addressed returning member Taylor Made professionally before SHINE 21. Then Rosa and Noemi Bosques were assaulted by April Hunter, and Made used brass knuckles...six Shines later Rosa and Made were fighting on ladder to get brass knuckles on a pole...
  • Jack of All Trades: If the description up there did not give you an idea, know that’s the short list regarding Black Rose’s history in athletics and performance arts. She's even played softball and capoeira!
  • Leitmotif: Her most common is "Abusadora" by Don Omar, such as when it was used for her second Vendetta Pro taktron entrance.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Has as much to say about her happy looking promo photos. In the ring, "is other stuff".
  • Little Black Dress: She has wrestled in one, and it does serve a practical purpose for a Puerto Rican wrestler. Blood stains don't show up well on black.
  • Look Behind You: While La Rosa was injured, VALkyrie tried to hinder Las Sicarias by abducting her. La Rosa's contribution to Las Sicarias' retaliation strike/rescue of Kimber Lee was to poke Andrea in the back and then quickly hobble away. Andrea found La Rosa laughing in her face as Velez and ACR floored the rest of her stable.
  • Morality Pet: Black Rose helped The Broncos, or at least Bronco #1 turn face in WWC. 1 ended up turning back but the two remained close... and Rose herself turned back at least once. She was also a Morality Chain for Amazona in IWA. Amazona had been a menace on shows but Black Rose helped bring out a better side of her. When Black Rose went bad, Amazona didn't just fall back into her bad habits but vowed to cause more misery than before in a effort to prove herself worse than Rose.
  • The Napoleon: La Rosa Negra was visibly annoyed she could not reach Taeler Hendrix's hands for a test of strength challenge while defending the PWS Majestic title.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Earned her Red Baron, La Abusadora, by mercilessly beating people and breaking La Morena's ankle with a chair. On the flip side she was frequently left unable to stand by La Morena, Killer Kat and Sweet Nancy(sometimes Barbie Boy helped) in IWA. La Amazona tried to help Rose but the numbers advantage proved insurmountable and the two were on the wrong end of many beat downs until Poison Ivy lent them a hand at Masacre en el Valle II.
  • Nothing Personal
    • Her interactions with Kacee Carlise were impassioned but mostly professional. La Rosa Negra had no interest in Melissa Coates's grudge (from Rose's 2010 WWC heel run) and teamed with Coates in when they "reunited" in Vendetta Pro Wrestling.
    • She was recruited to defeat The Backseat Girlz and Thunder Rock but otherwise likes and respects them, wishing Mayu Iwatani luck when she left for a Women Of Honor tournament.
    • There was nothing personal between Black Rose and Krystal la Potra in the lead up to WWC's 2019 Consequencias event until Black Rose forcibly drug Krystal away for attacking Rose's old client Ilegal Chicano. Without Krystal Doom Patrol failed to retain the tag titles against him and Xic Xavant.
  • Oddly Small Organization: Los Abusadores Internacional started with Ejecutivo Jorge Estrella y Secretaria Personal Debbie. Later Secretaria de Defensa Natalie was introduced.
  • One-Steve Limit
    • La Rosa Negra competed for Valkyrie Women's Wrestling in New York while opposing a power stable called Valkyrie in SHINE. That's expected when working for different promotions but on the first Valkyrie show she pinned two wrestlers that make up S.I.N. and the first two Valkyrie members to cross her were also members of Valkyrie's sub group, Made In Sin. Debbie Ross didn't become her secretary either.
    • Two of her largest opponents in the NWA are both named Andrea. Andrea Mother she can wrestle well against, Andrea The Giant she doesn't do so well against.
  • Patriotic Fervor: While Black Rose was known for managing two groups of Puerto Rican-hating Dominicans, after working off the island La Rosa Negra found that she was very proud to be a Boricua. She wore "I love Puerto Rico!" on her backside when she returned for WWL Insurrection.
  • Pint Sized Power House: Black Rose was often the shortest person on the WWC roster, even when Juliette was on it. She's also been seen running around with the larger La Morena and Didi Cruz on one shoulder, startled Amber O'Neal by simply standing up and carrying her while locked in submission holds and is capable of doing the same to the over six foot Andrea Mother. Height aside, she usually weighs in only two pounds less than women's heavyweight (60 KG). She's not smaller than all taller opposition.
  • Pom-Pom Girl: She was a cheerleader in school, and drew on that experience when trying to get fans behind baby faces like Los Fugitivos de la Calle and La Zona Ilegal.
  • Power Stable
    • The Dominican Revolution with Bacano, Bravo and Shaka El Truckero.
    • Brought into Oedo~tai by Hudson Envy in World Wonder Ring ST★RDOM.
    • Las Sicarias started as a trio in SHINE with Ivelisse Vélez and Amanda Rodriguez. Then they were joined by the returning Mercedes Martinez and debuting Thea Trinidad.
    • Mio Momono brought her into Mabutachi 2 Manjimanji to wrestle Maruko Nagasaki and Kyuri for control of the group in Marvelous.(The match ended in a draw and the four of them were no match for the garbage of W-Fix)
  • Product Placement: La Rosa Negra's attempted response to upstart Amber Rodriguez's trash talk in English did not go so well, leading to Amber waving a box of Eggo Waffles at the camera and Rosa on Google looking up how to pronounce ego.
  • Retcon: La Rosa Negra's second shot at NWA World Women's Champion Kacee Carlisle suddenly became La Rosa Negra defending her own Ring Warriors Battling Bombshells title, which was now “the most important title in the wrestling”. This was because Ring Warriors was breaking away from the NWA. It was pretty clear they were not especially eager to, La Rosa Negra would still call Kacee Carlisle the best wrestler in the world in future promos, despite retaining the Battling Bombshell's belt clean.
  • The Rival
    • Lady Demonique and Génesis were Black Rose's main rivals during her first two WWC women's champion runs, Demonique putting Génesis and Rose on the same page for awhile. After finally getting the better of Demonique, leaving for IWA PR and returning, Debbie Ross and Killer Kat in her next two runs.
    • La Morena consistently for most of her career. Black Rose had been associated with Dominicans but was teaming with La Zona Ilegal when Morena valeted for The Dominican Revolution. Despite the usual opposition, they did trust each other's words at face value.
    • Sweet Nancy's initial part in Morena's campaign against Black Rose gave way to a long lasting friendship forged out of mutual dislike for Amazona. The friendship strained under competition for belts and broke in CWS where Nancy took out her marital frustrations on Rose before title matches were even brought up.
    • “Queen Of Philly” Sienna Duvall was probably her first outside of the Caribbean.
    • Traveling the world and still failing to win a title belt, Mia Yim came back to USA with resolve to take one of La Rosa Negra's. Yim failed in this quest but managed to spoil La Rosa Negra's attempt to become a Triple Crown Florida Champion by beating her out to be the first NWA FUW Women's Champion and then successfully defending the belt against La Rosa.
    • Sexy Juliette The Huntress/The Anti Diva Sofia Cortez/Ivelisse Vélez has been both bitter enemy and reliable teammate.
    • Generally remained friendly with Su Yung, even though Yung kept stretching the rules during their matches, even after Yung injured her as she still tried to help Yung against the SNS Express, up until Yung went off the deep end and joined Valkyrie.
  • Rivals Team Up
    • She and Grandma Butcher teamed up to knock Annie Social and Sumie Sakai out of The PWS Majestic Tournament. Then Negra defeated Butcher.
    • Fierce rivals Nancy and Roxxy reunited at LAWE to ambush Black Rose, rejected her status as "ambassador" of women's wrestling in Puerto Rico, and beat up Rose's friendly rival Thunder Rosa while they were at it. Nancy's "eternal rival" Amazona also helped set up another attack on Black Rose, after which Rose and Thunder Rosa decided to team up on this "LRF" trio.
  • Sanity Slippage: After continued appearances for Ring Warriors Online with La Amazona, her smiles started to get disturbing. Also seemed just a little too happy about fighting Angel Rose.
  • Sassy Black Woman: She and Destiny were described as such when managing Los Compadres. Also when with WWC Tag Champions Los Fugitivos and after PWS BLOW 4, she really came off like one.
  • Scarf Of Ass Kicking: In Mission Pro she gained a sponsorship deal with the twitter account for Maxwell Jacob Friedman's Scarf...and the account for Mrs. MJF's Scarf. She treats it as seriously as a legitimate business endorsement, getting a scarf with a black rose on it, and wearing it to the ring even when the heat index exceeds 100 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Shaking the Rump: La Rosa Negra usually does so during her ring entrances, sometimes even during her multiple alternating splits entrance, which Sienna Duvall and Mia Yim have made frequent note of.
    Mia Yim: "We can't have that! It's rated G up in here!"
  • Signature Move: Short armed power slam, diving back elbow out of the corner or a slingshot elbow drop to gut of someone against the bottom turnbuckle. Over the shoulder or elevated cradle turnbuckle ram, the latter sometimes dropped into a face buster, the Boston Crab. A springboard moonsault(La Quebrada) around the time she was with Niche and Lynx. A sommersault leg drop in Marvelous. A second rope flashpoint while Mission Pro Champion.
  • So Proud of You: Her message to Ivelisse before their SHINE title match in Full Impact Pro. Saved her trash talk for Shanna.
  • Spicy Latina: Black Rose is easy going, but she's also really easy to set off.
  • Spiteful Spit: Her mouth was visibly bleeding in her second match with Shanna but La Rosa hid it during her match with Notorious Nadi in the second Nova she could spit blood while responding to a claim that professional wrestling was fake.
  • Start My Own: In 2022 she started building Labusadora Training Center in Hato Rey Puerto Rico with help from Jean K "El Que Todo Lo Puede", Jefrey & Javy "Los Demoldedores", Cano "La Maquina" and Steven "El Contable".
  • Suck My Rose: Black Rose is often seen carrying black roses in her teeth. (Presumably, she does not mind a mouth full of thorns)
  • Sword Limbo: Black Rose's instinctive counter to a super sidekick from Amazona Kick to lean back to the mat, push off with one arm and throw an elbow with the other. Leg limbo?
  • Sympathy for the Hero She first met "La Chica de la Actitud" Roxxy as an opponent to support Sweet Nancy, who had betrayed Roxxy in EWO. When Amazona also betrayed Roxxy on Vanilla Vargas's behalf in WWC though, Black Rose decided to even the odds for her. When Vargas was gone, Rose declared WWC her territory and went back to fighting Roxxy, but it was among the least hostile WWC feuds she ever had.
  • Theatrics of Pain: Usually shakes off most offense before long but when something sticks, the way she moves will change entirely (if not stop). The rudimentary covers during her WWC Septembre Negro match against Serena Deeb is a good example. Her labored movement following an injection of perfection on SHINE 18 and Shanna's goal at SHINE 20 are two more. By contrast, her inability to walk for more than a minute after a Battling Bombshells title defense in Orlando during 2012 was not selling.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: Amber Rodriguez had acquired the services of Rico Casanova, who knew La Rosa Negra's repertoire inside out. Rosa Negra countered this by training with Kevin Sullivan. Winning the Mission Pro title belt inspired her to train harder and seek out Jazz when she and Rodney Mack opened another Dogg Pound.
  • Tired of Running: Black Rose bailed from the ring, as she had a few times before, after pinning newer, nastier "La Destructora" Nancy in The World Wrestling league only for Nancy to successfully chase her down with never before seen speed, despite her added weight, and beat her down. Since then Black Rose has consistently stood her ground against Nancy, even when warned of Nancy's oncoming sneak attack at the subsequent Liga Wrestling show, even after being beaten outright by Nancy on said show. She's been less timid and evasive regarding her opponents in general, not even flinching when challenged by Holidead, who she used to be openly wary of when they were partners. Black Rose was clear she did not want to be facing groups like LRF and Jazmin Allure's gang alone, but opted to do just that when they came for her rather than flee, even after LRF had left her laying once.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Started to turn face after the second Pro Wrestling Syndicate BLOW but then suddenly became a real ass. This was later revealed to be a result of Vinny Fenucci's favoritism going to her head.
  • Tournament Arc
    • When La Morena was on hiatus from WWC in 2011, Black Rose won a tournament for the women's title belt Morena left vacant, defeating Serena Deeb in the final match.
    • She won the PWS Majestic 12 by outlasting Mia Yim and Jessie Kaye.
    • Defeated Lacey Ryan two falls to one in the final match of Mission Pro Wrestling's Tournament of Hell to become the promotion's first champion.
  • Training Montage: Besides doing several for The Spot (or at The Spot for shows), she also interrupted one of radio host Jorge Alonso's (who was training to beat her up)
  • Underestimating Badassery: While feuding with Sienna Duvall over the Battling Bombshells title, La Rosa Negra had little to say to or about Su Yung (Duvall of course had a lot to say, training in revived FCW made Yung a "diva")and pinned Yung in an almost casual manner when they first squared off, talking trash to Duvall the entire time. Yung consistently climbing back into number one contention lead to La Rosa becoming one of her biggest fans though.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Even if you can't hear what she says, her body language often tells quite enough. Take when La Rosa Negra revealed how she leg cradles in PWS, she didn't just hold on longer than necessary, she started doing pushups while Angelina Love was tapping out.
  • Ugly Hero, Good-Looking Villain: Vinny Fenucci, AKA Vinny Vice, made her the villain by hand picking La Rosa Negra to be face of the PWS Bombshells division and proclaiming Missy Sampson too ugly to be on his roster.
  • Ur-Example: Besides the Battling Bombshells, Majestic Bombshells, Mission Pro and Magic City Wrestling belts, as CWS Women's Champion she was the first woman to defend a Puerto Rican Professional Wrestling Title belt overseas.
  • Use Your Head: Has resorted to head butts, such as during a desperate attempt to escape from Sienna Duvall's straight jacket or out of frustration with Mia Yim. La Rosa Negra usually does not strike head to head when doing so, she's nowhere near as hardheaded as Christina Von Eerie, Santana Garret, Thunderkitty, etc.
  • We Used to Be Friends
    • When Rico Suave turned on Los Broncos and lead Poder Supremo alongside the New Wrestling Stars and New Empire invaders of WWC, Black Rose was neither invited nor spared his wrath.
    • She and Amazona were tag team partners in IWA. Amazona even took several beatings from Sweet Nancy, Killer Kat and Morena, trying to stop their continued efforts to injure Black Rose. But Rose became envious when Amazona won IWA's women's title and they haven't been right since.
    • La Rosa Negra used to help train and promote Dynamite Didi Cruz at The Spot. This time drama over Rosa's title belt killed the friendship. Didi made an effort to keep it professional and stay friends at Boricua's Most Wanted but Rosa was having none of it. Didi seemed to be repairing the relationship at U Know Pro until she accidentally speared La Rosa.
    • At WWC's Euphoria 2015 the returning Black Rose didn't get a friendly welcome from La Tigresa.
    • This applies to all of Las Sicarias and their mole but ACR seems to hate La Rosa the most.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: While wrestling outside of Puerto Rico, she often wears the flag on her head and everywhere else she is clothed.
  • With Friends Like These...:
    • When Sendai Girls paired her with Heidi Katrina for Big Show In Osaka La Rosa had no mercy for her regular partners Mio Momono and Hana Kimura. Momono was being her usual disrespectful self but poor Kimura was on her best behavior.
    • Her fans in Nassau were gone when Fighting Evolution Wrestling was in The Bahamas for Caribbean Heat, replaced by kids who cared more about her student Red Velvett, who she proceeded to beat up out of spite.
  • The Worf Effect: In 2013 she returned to UCW Zero, suddenly working heel, so then rookie baby face Lacey Ryan could gain credibility by breaking La Rosa's winning streak.
  • Worthy Opponent: She said she liked being hit in the face by Madison Eagles, didn't know why, but needed a rematch. Io Shirai is a mutual case, as La Rosa admired Shirai as a wrestler and was surprised to hear Shirai thought Negra was pretty good too.

Alternative Title(s): La Rosa Negra
