There was a controversial incident that took place at Lucha Libre AAA's Triplemanía XXV over the weekend involving Global Force Wrestling Knockout Rosemary and AAA's Sexy Star.
At the end of their match, which was a Fatal 4-Way that also involved Lady Shani and former GFW (TNA) Knockout Ayako Hamada, Sexy Star applied a Cross Armbreaker on Rosemary and legitimately applied pressure with the hold and refused to let go, even after Rosemary tapped out to end the match. As many fans are well aware, the Cross Armbreaker can be a very real and very dangerous submission hold and is a staple in submission grappling arts (Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Catch Wrestling, etc.) and MMA fighting.
Apparently Sexy Star and Lady Shani were legitimately fighting at one point during the match. It's unclear as to why Sexy Star decided to take this out on Rosemary, but numerous wrestling stars have taken to Twitter to criticize Sexy Star for her actions.
Rosemary broke her silence about the situation with the following Tweets:
“Let me make this perfectly clear: if you take liberties with someone else’s body when they are giving it to you and trusting you to keep them safe, you are not tough. You are an asshole. And you don’t belong in this business.
“Sexy Star decided to do 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 us 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 want 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.”
