Pro Wrestling News: Sexy Starr removed from upcoming show after 'shoot' incident
WrestleCade released the following statement after viewing the incident and conducting their own research in regards to the decision to pull her from the event:
“There is no place for this in professional wrestling. Therefore we have made the decision NOT to bring Sexy Star to WrestleCade Weekend.
We’re sorry for the fans who were looking forward to meeting her but we encourage you to read the reports and we hope you agree with our decision.”
Fans who purchased tickets to meet Sexy Starr at WrestleCade will be issued full refunds for the meet and greet tickets.
Numerous wrestling stars along with people behind the scenes in professional wrestling have recently spoken out against Sexy Starr and her actions. The most common theme in the various tweets and statements is maintaining professionalism, safety in the ring, and being able to trust somebody else with your body.
Rosemary herself, who had been quiet on the matter due to the feeling that she needed to calm herself before speaking out, has released a statement via social media echoing the sentiments of the majority of the wrestling world.
Also mixed into the controversy is indie wrestling promotion Wrestle Circus, who also spoke out against Sexy Starr’s actions at TripleMania, but also stated that she had acted unprofessionally at a previous event and they remained quiet about it until now.
In addition to WrestleCade pulling her from their event, other promotions have released statements regarding working with Sexy Starr in the future. Pro-Wrestling: EVE tweeted the following:
“Dear fellow wrestling promoters: do you value the safety of your talent? Then now is the time to cancel Sexy Starr bookings from your show.”
During a Twitter exchange regarding the incident with Mike Bennett, Brian James aka Road Dogg, an agent in WWE, stated the following:
“Are we 100% she did this maliciously? If so, what's her name? Let's get it out to every booker out there and blacklist her. Disgusting!”
In the coming weeks look for Sexy Starr to continue to be in the news, whether it is more companies severing relationships with her or people in the business continuing to discuss the ramifications of her actions.
