Sexy Star se prononce sur l’accident de Triplemania XXV
Moins de deux semaines après le déclenchement d’une guerre entre Rosemary et l’ex-championne en titre Reina des Reinas d’AAA Sexy Star, l’accusé a finalement ouvert la bouche. Plutôt que de m’éterniser avec des phrases voici son tweet publié lundi. Selon la luchadora, Rosemary serait en train de mentir par rapport à sa blessure.

“First of all I want to thank the people who have been with me these days that have become a nightmare and one of the most difficult moments of my career and my personal life. As some of you know, last Saturday, August 26th, I attended the TRIPLEMANIA XVV event, at the Mexico City Arena, to fulfill a championship fight, for the company AAA, to which I am contracted as an independent worker, to reuse the Sexy Star Mask, a character I’ve worked with for 11 years. At first I was informed that this championship would be REINA de REINAS in a one on one with one of the Mexican women who belongs to the company, but a few days to go before the event, I was informed that they would include two more fighters, among them being a North American woman belonging to the company Global Force Wrestling, that AAA contracts as an external source for talent, and that to my knowledge, never fought in Mexico or at least never for the Mexican company I work for and which I met minutes before going up to fulfill the fight, for which I am contracted.
As I have done for more than ten years, when I came to this place, I would approach those who would participate in the fight, to coordinate the show that we presented to the public, in order to be responsible for the event (Lucha AAA), who indicated with precision, what would happen in combat. As it is my custom and especially when I am going to fight with someone with whom I have not worked and who is a foreigner – the styles of fights change a lot between country and country – especially if I went to America, I asked her if she felt good with that or if she wanted to change something, to feel more confident in the ring, those who have worked with me, know that I always do so, with the idea to protect from any incident those who work with me and myself, not only for ethics and for values that my house have taught me, in which include the companionship, but because I have always had the awareness of the danger that we run, all those who work in the fight, be it our first fight or the one hundredth. I want to clarify that she never asked me to verify or mark what we would present, something that is always important for me, so I assumed that she knew and would have control of everything that we would do. Being the talent coordinator of AAA who gave the “OK” to go up without performing the fight without a previous approach.
Come the moment of the fight, I went up to the pancracio to perform the spectacle that I have usually presented to the public, for many years, in the same way, with the same energy and delivery, with the same style and fury that has characterized ” Sexy Star “in absolutely all her bouts. The fight comes to its end, when I submitted the American woman, with the punishment that was indicated to me, that was selected for being, in the range of dangerousness of the lowest level, and that I have repeatedly applied and have had applied on me – a punishment that as I repeat, is in the range of danger that is considered low. At the end of the show and after the foreign woman left on her own two feet, and without the need for any medical assistance, she followed the usual protocol, I handed the belt to Martha Villabolos, whom I deeply admire and who even taught me a lot in my first approaches to this sport, which I love with all my heart and that has cost me injuries, sacrifices and that has forced me to be consistant in my preparation to strengthen my body and withstand falls, postures – few know the secrets of the fight and if in this letter I reveal some, it is for security to my integrity, out of respect for the career that has given me so much professionally and personally, I do not think to punctuate more, just say that those who have preserved their career with ups and downs, with falls and rises, with injuries and bleeding, understand what I mean.
After twenty minutes and finishing the protocol of the delivery of the belt, I go down to locker rooms where I was approached by people in charge of Global Force Wrestling and who had a working relationship with AAA, who claimed in the language of their country, an alleged injury to the fighter I submitted, something that surprised me, since as I reiterate, she left on her own two feet. Immediately and not just for ethics, but because I was worried, I went to see to check if she was well, and I found her talking to another companion, standing in the production monitoring room, only with an ice pack in her elbow, no there was no paramedic or person attending. She was not even on a stretcher – a safety protocol that is taken when there is a suspicion of injury – but she was not even seated, that gave me peace of mind because, from my own eyes, I saw that it was not bad, she had not hurt herself. Then the AAA talent coordinator told me that everything was fine, so I would leave the place with my husband, with the peace and security that everything was fine and without any indication of Mr. Dorian Roldan, owner of the company AAA, who I want to assume, had there been any problem, would not have allowed me to go without clarifying some kind of situation. You also have to know that I never received a medical report and there is no x-ray that shows, some type of injury in which was my companion of fight.
I do not worry about the situation, because I repeat, with my own eyes, I saw that she had not been injured, I did not suppose, I noticed that she was not taken care of by paramedics, nor was she moved or needed medical equipment or a stretcher, as when someone is injured. In my fighting career I have seen injuries and I myself have been a victim of accidents and believe me, there was nothing that is close to that, that night in TRIPLEMANIA XXV, after the fight for the championship REINA de REINAS. The following day I began to receive via social networks a series of cyber attacks, that included mean spirited comments, written by the American woman, where she affirmed only in text, without showing some photograph or medical report and already in her country of residence, inclusion without giving the face or voice, that I had intentionally injured her. This letter was widely disseminated by American wrestlers, with whom I have never worked and who weren’t in the arena, who added texts affirming my supposed anti-professionalism, supporting their words with the letter of the American, which had already reached more than 4 thousand retweets.
The harassment on social networks was growing and also came from bloggers and media, who were not there, who did not cover the event, media that do not even work in Mexico, media that had no hesitation in heading their note with words like “She dislocated the shoulder purposely” others “intentionally breaks her arm” affirming the alleged injury, having only as a reference the letter raised to Twitter by the American and the video of the end of the fight from several angles, where at no point whatsoever is the injured woman being checked on, and on the contrary she is seen leaving the ring by herself using her hands. Some even ensured that the punishment was done with bad intentions, as in raising the hips, something that is not in the video. Many media platforms and columnists of the network, even did not agree and mentioned that the injury that the fighter suffered was in shoulder, others in elbow and others in complete arm.
I clarify that in the video that’s been circulating on the internet, I only see myself impersonating Sexy Star doing the punishment, with the same energy and fury that characterizes the character, in the same way and with the same force, without loosing until seconds after checking the referee, as always has done Sexy Star. I can prove that this punishment has been done on other occasions with exactly the same amount of time and strength to other companions, even recently in one of the matches of Sexy Star in an american promotion in which I am currently participating, I assure you that the companion who received this punishment on that occasion, which is in the range of low danger, at least in Mexican wrestling, and I have never wrongly used it to absolutely injure anyone.
August 30th marked my 11th year in wrestling, a sport to which I have given my life and my body to, without being figurative, body that has damages, because in this sport, if you make a career like I have had the blessing to do, you do not save, … to the fight I have always had respect, respect that I began to exercise ever since I have taken the body of my partner or companion to whom I have always cared without exception and will do, regardless of nationality or who know or not, a lot of this sport, that respect I inherited not only from my parents, I inherited it from my teachers and professors, people with dynasties in Mexican wrestling, where this sport was born, and I am sure that my teachers can speak and support, that I have never neglected any companion.
Out of respect and love to my teachers and my followers, who have given me their love and to whom I owe my career and who, know me perfectly, I dedicate this letter, which are the only ones that deserve to have the testimony of what really happened, but above all I dedicate it to Sexy Star, a character that was loaned to me and many people, with honor, honesty, respect, integrity and passion, I have defended and carried for 11 years, the same values that belong to Dulce Maria Garcia Rivas and I will not let anyone, with versions not supported by evidence, discredit me.”
US Coachways pointé du doigt pour les problèmes de Progress en Amérique du Nord
Lors de leur podcast semi-hebdomadaire Tuesday Night Jaw, les copropriétaires de la promotion Jim Smallman, Glen Joseph et Jon Briley ont discuté des évènements survenus au début du mois d’août lors de leur séjour aux États-Unis.
PROGRESS a loué un bus quelques semaines auparavant avec l’entreprise de transport afin de permettre le voyage entre la Grosse Pomme et Boston, où ont eu lieu les deux galas. Au malheur de plusieurs lutteurs et des organisateurs, leur moyen de déplacement n’est jamais apparu. Cette erreur a entraîné une perte de plus de 2500 $ pour eux. Tout semble être facilement pardonnable SI US Coachways avait remboursé Smallman et compagnie. Par contre, ce n’est pas ce qui est arrivé. À ce jour, ils n’ont toujours pas reçu de réponse concrète de l’entreprise après multiples courriels et appels téléphoniques. Le seul indice d’un pardon a été un coupon rabais de 50 $ sur leur prochaine réservation offert en guise de compensation. Pas fort US Coachways.
La mystérieuse BCW
Dans la région d’Ottawa-Gatineau, la promotion Bytown Championship Wrestling est apparue de nulle part, surprenant les amateurs de la région en organisant un gala avec un ensemble considérable de lutteurs. Le domicile des Olympiques de Gatineau se transformera en arène de lutte la nuit du 17 septembre prochain. Cette soirée-là, on retrouvera au Centre Robert Guertin « TNA Superstar » Trevor Lee, James Storm, RVD, Tyson Dux, John Hennigan, Brian Cage, membre du Temple de la renommée de la UFC Stephan Bonnar et un dénommé Sting.
Le gala aurait été créé afin de permettre le tournage d’un film ou d’une série qui mettrait en vedette RVD, Hennigan et Michael Tarver. Il est clair que plutôt que d’organiser un évènement en partenariat avec une promotion locale (C* 4 ou Acclaim Pro Wrestling), les réalisateurs ont préféré garder le contrôle.
