The wrestling world voiced its displeasure following an incident involving Sexy Star and Global Force Wrestling Knockout Rosemary during the Reina de Reinas (women’s) championship match at AAA’s TripleManía event in Mexico on Saturday.
According to PWInsider, Rosemary suffered an injury during the finish of the match after Sexy Star hyperextended or dislocated her elbow using her armbar submission.
Rosemary finally shared all on the armbar spot, and she held nothing back.
“Let me make this perfectly clear: if you take liberties with someone’s body when they are giving tit to you and trusting you to keep them safe, you are not tough. You are an asshole. And you don’t belong in the business.
Sexy Star decided to do just that this weekend at Triplemania. And while I have remained quiet on social media until I was more calm to address the situation, I have now been informed that she is telling people that it is a work. You are all now being informed that Sexy Star is a liar. She was a liar in the locker room when she was forced to apologize and instead cooked up some bullshit excuse that she “didn’t know” and she is a liar now. You know if you are torquing on someone’s arm. You know an armbar is a real and dangerous hold.
The only reason your face is not broken right now is because a little voice inside my head as I lay on the apron kept repeating, “Don’t go to Mexican prison.” (thanks, Demon)
However, turning to positives: the outreach from the wrestling community has been incredible. I’m overwhelmed with how much love I feel right now from friends, fans, and people I have yet to meet in this amazing business. We are a family and we protect our own. If you violate that, you are not welcome here.
I also what to thank the AAA locker room. Multiple people came up to me saying how sorry and disgusted they were. Thank you Hamada and Shani, who also had to deal with bullshit from Star during that match. Thank you, Vampiro, for professionally trying to calm a volatile situation, though, as you know, once the excuses started pouring out of Sexy Star’s mouth in lieu of an apology, it was over.
Thank you to the amazing GFW locker room, both present that night and not. I have so much support from everyone, and talent, crew and office have all reached out to show me that.”
Prior to the incident, Sexy Star and Lady Shani, who was also competing in the 4Way match, “were legitimately shooting on (fighting) each other at one point.” According to the report, Sexy Star apologized to Rosemary and was rushed out of the arena as tensions were high backstage.
Doctors evaluated the GFW Knockout to determine the extent of the damage. Fortunately, PWInsider reported that Rosemary’s injury isn’t quite as severe as it had been originally reported through numerous outlets and she is not expected to miss extended time.
Still, Sexy Star’s actions were rightfully shunned by a wrestling community that follows the code of taking care of your opponent and trying to avoid injuries at all costs. Here are some notable reactions to the incident, including several of Rosemary’s fellow GFW Knockouts.
Surely, there will be repercussions for Sexy Star following the incident.
