The Sidebar – EP 15 – Rosemary Injury Updates & More!

Tonight, Dyzzy, JAYBONE, Max & Baron discuss our thoughts on McGregor vs Mayweather fight, the Sexy Star vs Rosemary outcome at AAA, plus we wish our soundboard guy Bubba a very happy birthday!!!

Personal Thoughts On The Sexy Star & Rosemary Situation

I’ve been troubled by the latest reports I’ve been reading today following TripleMania event from this past weekend, where Sexy Star intentionally injured Rosemary’s arm following the completion of their match. Being someone who’s training right now to become a professional wrestler, this is truly upsetting.

One of the main lessons we learn in the fundamentals in wrestling is that you have to protect the fellow challenger in the match. You entrust a lot to your fellow competitor and in thus the other competitor entrusts a lot in you. It’s a trust in that ring and it’s crucial to have it as your life depends on the other person. You trust that the competitor delivering a move to you can deliver it safely, and with enough sense to protect you and vise versa.

There have been stories of talents who believe that their better than someone else, and that can really rub some people off.  To a point where talents would stiff the competition during the match, not by accident, but on purpose. Just one hard punch. But going out of your way to intentionally injure someone is something completely different. You’re taking the bread off their table. You’re putting them on the shelf and jeopardizing their way of living. You could have injured them in a way where they couldn’t return to do what they love to do. How is that fair?

I use to like Sexy Star; she’s one of these talents that showed a lot of heart in the ring, which gets the audience behind you. But this weekend she truly showed her real colors and they are dark. I know she’s been more focused on her professional boxing career than wrestling, but that doesn’t give you the right to intentionally hurt someone. Yes there can be bad blood between talents, but usually talents still remain civil in the ring to give the audience; the one thing that connects both talents in that ring, something they can take home and talk about.

The Wrestling market has never been bigger and instead of hot-headed talents in the locker-room who think they are the only important thing in there, there are a lot of friendships being developed now. It’s a new generation for the business, and even though friendships in the past were hard to come by, they still worked together in the ring.

Sexy Star has now positioned herself to pretty much kiss her professional wrestling career away. Booker’s have already started pulling her from shows, just as WrestleCade did in their latest tweet:

And the fans that made you who you are today, are now turning their back on you. Talents who you befriended in the past now disregard you as a heartless person. It doesn’t matter if you have personal problems with a certain talent, when you’re in that ring, your main thing to do is put on a show for the audience, and make sure to PROTECT THE OTHER PERSON no matter how much you hate them.

As far as I see it, Sexy Star should not only remove that mask, but throw it away as well, as not only did she disrespect herself, the fans, her fellow competitors but the wrestling business itself.

Here is Rosemary’s comments 24 hrs removed from her fight against Sexy Star where she revealed that the injury was intentional.

MOC wishes Rosemary a speedy and healthy recovery.

Eric Bischoff Says That Impact Wrestling & AAA Partnership Doesn’t Matter

Eric Bischoff addressed the recent partnership of Impact Wrestling and AAA on his podcast “Bischoff On Wrestling” and says that the partnership doesn’t matter as both companies don’t make much money.

Here’s what he had to say:

(Transcript sourced from EWrestlingnews.com)

“I’m just having such a hard time unpacking the meaning or the relevance of that story. First of all, I love Lucha Underground, I watch it and I dig it as a television product. It gets no ratings. It’s making no money. It has no live event market. To my knowledge they don’t have any licensing or merchandising. It’s just content. It’s very expensive content and it’s cool as hell, don’t get me wrong. It’s cool content but there is no money in it. The fact that the athletes that portray the characters on a show that doesn’t make any money have the privilege of working on another show that doesn’t make any money and they can’t even be the characters that aren’t making money on another network… to me it just seems kind of irrelevant. It does’t matter.”

“Impact doesn’t make any money. They make zero money in television and licensing fees. They basically give their show away to Pop TV. It’s like an infomercial hoping that they are going to find another way to make revenue. They don’t have live events, they don’t have merchandising and they won’t be making any money from YouTube as of now. So, what the hell difference does it make? Why is this a headline? A bunch of guys from Mexico get the privilege of working for a company that doesn’t pay anybody any money for an opportunity to not make any money? Eh, good for everybody. I’m happy they’re all happy. It’s great headlines. Great perception. If you can make a living off creating cheap headlines that don’t really matter good for you. At the end of the day it’s a non-issue issue.”
