Sounds like the wrong person suffered from others stiffing Sexy Star in that match....doesn't make it right what she did. Still....there's still a legit excuse for her and the overreaction or this isn't warranted and most likely blow over.
Also....Wrestling fans who critique this, should probably stay away from wrestling history. Never look up Bruiser Brody for that matter.

After listening to Meltzer on the LAW you can understand Sexy Star a little, however I would understand her if she did this to the ones that were stiffing her and not Rosemary who apparently was not. Rosemary was working with her as well and even gave her the arm. I don't know much about Sexy Star but she doesn't come off well in this situation at all, it does come off as she got really pissed at being stiffed and knew she couldn't give it back so she picked on someone else.
The funniest thing in pro wrestling, for me at least, is to watch grown adults act like bipolar babies and hurting each other for real. I could understand this in the '70s and up until the '90s when your backstage cred mattered but now you'll just get reprimated and possibly get suspended/fired.
Conor/Floyd got millions to really hurt each other.
That stupid cunt got what? 200 bucks and a couple cheeseburgers? Way to go girl. Way to represent women in a man dominated sport in a classy way.
To me it seems like there's some sort of history going on with some of these women. Lady Shani seemed to have her mind on something else during the match because she wasn't cooperating properly for parts of it. And then yeah, Sexy Star seemed to snap for a moment right at the end as she wrenched on Rosemary's arm, which is a) crazy and #2) highly unprofessional.
What I don't get is why Sexy didn't just own up to it afterwards either. By all accounts she seemed to deny that she did anything on purpose and didn't seem to apologize at all. But like I said maybe that's because there's something going on between the women (though not Rosemary) backstage that we don't know about.
I have heard that Sexy Star has a bit of an ego and can be difficult to work with sometimes, but this time I think she's finally crossed a line. AAA will probably still book her but she might have trouble in LU. She's almost 35 too, and if she gets blackballed from most of the industry, even just for a few years, it might spell the end of her career at this point. And this should be her prime years!
As far as I'm concerned she can go blow donkeys for a living. She doesn't deserve a spot in today's wrestling environment. Some may call that old school. I call it bringing back bad memories of someone taking advantage of someone giving his/her body to you. In the '70s you'd be considered a badass. In 2017 you're just an asshole.
So we like strong style....where guys hurt themselves. But we hate when people are stiff and hurt others.....except all those guys who broke others necks, eye sockets, legs and gave others concussions....those are accidents or whatever it's wrestling it's not ballet.
I'm confused to the outrage of people sometimes....it's inconsistent.
I for one am no fan of "strong style", much less two people letting personal matters interfere with business inside the ring, much less someone going into business for themself. S.S. had some sympathy in getting stiffed by Shani but all that went out the window in straight-up assaulting someone who had done no such thing and was putting her over.
