Former Mae Young Classic competitor Priscilla Kelly is drawing a lot of attention online and dividing opinion on a controversial spot she took part in recently in which she pulled a bloody tampon from her trunks and shoved it in the face of her opponent.
WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross has called the spot "embarrassing" and Brian G. James (Road Dogg) said Kelly has no dignity or personal pride to take part in such an angle. Female competitors such as Gail Kim and Tessa Blanchard have also spoken out against the spot.
There are also those, such as Tommy Dreamer and Joey Ryan who had no issue.
Priscilla responded to the criticism on her Twitter, "Hey guys. Ya know, it’s all fake. 21+ show with a bar. Can’t take life so serious all the time. Call me what you will…"
Below is some of the reaction from those in the industry.
Embarrassing.... https://t.co/vCEEmBT8VH— Jim Ross (@JRsBBQ) January 5, 2019
I’m seeing this post of a women’s match that got disgusting and I’m not gonna repost it Bc it’s seriously a disgrace. Why??? Whoever thought that was a spot that was gonna get a pop and was worth it..... NO. how about telling a story in the ring with your wrestling instead?— Gail Kim-Irvine (@gailkimITSME) January 5, 2019
I wonder if it was a First Blood Match. 😁🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/gwF8cudxNh— Hurricane Helms (@ShaneHelmsCom) January 5, 2019
I am actually disgusted with this. https://t.co/8gOU0MykWT— Tessa Blanchard (@Tess_Blanchard) January 5, 2019
Would you say the same about Mae Young? Or is period blood somehow worse than placenta? Cause they showed that shit on TV. Honest question. https://t.co/njIQPxQ3DU— Joey Ryan (@JoeyRyanOnline) January 6, 2019
Anyone who calls themselves a "pro wrestler", yet defends any stupid thing they've done with telling fans "It's fake anyway", male or female, is a piece of shit and should be boiled in oil and have the fat sold for soap. These maggots on the carcass of the business disgust me.— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) January 6, 2019
You didn't go NEARLY as far as you should have, as I did, or as I will continue to--just tweet out a picture of the goof's face when she asks for a job someday and gets laughed out of Stamford. These fake play rasslers, male or female, need their asses blackballed AND kicked. https://t.co/SjOVbQGi70— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) January 6, 2019
People want my take so I'll give it direct to you--I expect nothing else from outlaw mud show "rasslers", male or female, cause none of you can work. But to defend your bullshit by starting "Well, it's all fake"? THAT'S why you, dick guy & others are killing wrestling. Fuck you. https://t.co/XZmYhvLBAI— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) January 6, 2019
