Sexy Star is Blackball from Pro Wrestling

Courtney Rush aka Rosemary and Sexy Star (credit Composite via wrestlingnews.co)


So, this weekend was the Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide show Triplemania XXV (25 for those who don't know roman numerals) and what is making me to be interesting into this? Well, two things. One, the show is on Twitch in both English and Spanish and two, Courtney Rush got injured at the show and the wrestling community is in an uproar.

So, what happened? I got a notification from twitter and it was from Cherry Bomb or by her Global Force Wrestling name, Allie, tweeted this out:
So, I was wondering, What is going on? Why did Cherry Bomb tweeted about Courtney Rush? What happened to Courtney Rush? As my timeline on twitter was unfolding that Courtney Rush (or Rosemary, to those who watch GFW Impact) was injured and Sexy Star was to blame. But, why? I see a lot of guys talking trash about Sexy Star and I wanted to know what happened? So, I decided to follow Courtney Rush on twitter and hope she explains what happened.

She did yesterday and this is what she said on twitter:
 For those who are wondering what she is say, let me shortened it for you. What happened is that Sexy Star injured Courtney Rush in the maneuver known as the armbar and hurt her. After the match ended, Sexy Star goes around saying that what happened to Courtney was nothing more as a work. Sexy Star did not apologize to Courtney Rush. It makes me so angry and upset that someone like Courtney Rush, who, as Rosemary, have hold the GFW Knockouts Title for over 260+ days, get injured by a fellow wrestler and don't get an apology from said wrestler, then something is really messed up here! Also, for those who are not believing me, watch this:
Everyone on Twitter knows. What happened to Courtney Rush is terrible. I hope Courtney gets her arm put back in place and as for Sexy Star, she is blackball from Pro Wrestling! For what she did and how everyone within the wrestling community, both fans and wrestlers, she might as well leave pro wrestling for good! No one will book Sexy Star and let it stay that way!

Twitch: Can it be helpful to those wrestling fans who can not watch due to payment?

Note: Please understand, this is no bashing. This is something that I observed and being a Twitch Streamer myself, let me put my spin on it.

So, my notifications on twitter goes off. Cherry Bomb or if you want to call her by her Global Force Wrestling name, Allie, was really concerned about a fellow wrestler, Courtney Rush, or her GFW name, Rosemary, got injured at the AAA Triplemania XXV show. I am sure she know by seeing the tweets on Twitter, or there might be a theory: She could have a Twitch account!

I am sure you are wondering: Lindsie, Twitch is a streaming site that host gamers! They are a rival to YouTube! Why can't anyone watch it on YouTube?

Well...Twitch is mostly for gamers, but, AAA, the Lucha Libre wrestling company in Mexico is the first wrestling company to have a Twitch account and be a Twitch Partner, just to air AAA's big shows for free. They are being paid with advertisements and subscriptions. However, a fee weeks ago, Wrestle Circus, the Texas Wrestling promotion, just became a Twitch Partner too. I know that Twitch does not only host gamers, but, beyond it. I am on Twitch with an account, but, I am kinda working on becoming a Twitch partner. I am not there yet, because there are certain rules to become a Twitch Partner.

In order to become a Twitch Partner, which includes being verified, you need to be streaming regularly 3 times a week, which it would be requiring a schedule, a steady viewership. The perks of this does come in well. There is a subscription fee for those who subscribe, so, if you can't afford, you can still follow that person, until you can. Subscriptions goes at $4.99USD, $9.99USD, and $24.99USD or you can go free if you become a Twitch Prime member, which you become an Amazon Prime member too. You become a Prime member when you try it for free 30 days before paying $10.99USD per month. This way, you can easily support any of your favorite Twitch Streamers that are partner, you get in-game loot, Ad-free viewing to any Twitch partners, discounts on pre-release box games, watch movies, tv, and songs that are on Amazon for free, and two-day free shipping on Amazon. However, if you are an Amazon Prime member, just connect it with you Twitch account. I believe that will be free when you connect.

Either way, this is really cool and to my opinion, more wrestling promotions or companies who are not in a deal with anyone (FITE TV, FloSports) or have their own services, this is the best way to connect fans. One day, when I become a Twitch Verified Partner, I will support those by being their subscriber.

Did I forget there is a benefit to be a subscriber on Twitch? Yeah, you get cool custom emoticons and also, you can take part in anything that a Twitch Verified Partner can do. Want to see that happen?

Follow me on Twitch (If you already sign up on Twitch, because that's free): Twitch.tv/misslindsiestarr

Until next time,

Will Ospreay is not a jerk!

Last night, I was going on Facebook, just scrolling around, when a post from Will Ospreay brought to my attention. Apparently, he has been threaten to a lawsuit by an New Zealand man and he has proof. Although I don't see the post anymore, but, I know, he is. The whole story on why he is explain in his Facebook posts of what happened:







I am very surprise that some promoter who stiff their talent out of their money, would dare to threaten someone who is very popular among the UK, Japan, and US scene because he stiff Will and then make accusations against Will after he got caught swearing in a video on Will and posted on his Facebook page that claims to be "Family Friendly" and then take it down, so no one could view it. Well, guess what? Dude your caught and Will Ospreay is not a jerk! You are!

This case of another shady person passing off as a wrestling promoter, just to scam people out of their money. It is not common on this happening, but, when getting caught on this, yeah, this will happened. You have a choice, owe up to it or disappear. Highly in shady promoters to scam, they would disappear, but accusing wrestlers are becoming a new low. This is ridiculous. I am sorry, but, I am taken Will's side for this. He was offering his help and hope to be paid, but, it turns out ugly. Also, this is not the first time this happened to Will and I hope this will be his last.

If you please can share this with everyone. This needs to be shared so everyone knows that you do not stiff a wrestler their pay.

Why I am feeling that Kenny Omega is destine to face against Kota Ibushi in the finals of the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax

Hey my readers out there! Lindsie Starr here, bringing back with another blog and yes, let me just say that I been having a very good morning, especially when it came to watching Kenny Omega for an hour. What? I know he wrestled for an hour at New Japan Pro Wrestling Dominion! Your confused here aren't you? Well, let me just say, just watching him talk about him winning the IWGP United States title and the G1 Climax was really enjoying as much of him wrestling. You see New Japan had on their World streaming services a free live stream of a show called Wonderland and Kenny was a guest on their show. He talk about him winning the IWGP United States Championship in California and promise to keep the title in pristine and issues any challenger for the title. I know he did mention the other titles including the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, which  Hiroshi Tanahashi is the current champion, that the belt was not looking good. I have to agree with Kenny on that due to the fact it was Tetsuya Naito who made the title damage and Tanahashi had to beat Naito for it, because Naito has been disrespecting the title and the company by breaking it. In fact, I am really glad that Kenny Omega is the inaugural IWGP United States Champion, because what happened if Tetsuya Naito won the title? Well if you were paying attention to Night 1 broadcast of the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Special, you know Jim Ross said that if Naito won it, he would throw it in the Pacific Ocean. Not good if you ask me.

Kenny did said that he wanted the bosses of New Japan Pro Wrestling to grant him control of who he wanted to wrestle, because he did issue any challengers and I highly think there would be a few who should, most likely, JT Dunn, which I haven't seen a tweet from him nor anything on his YouTube channel or Instagram. Then there is Austin Aries, which a lot of people would want to see him vs. Kenny, but, I am feeling it could be a squash match, but, I forgot that he has been a  former two time Ring of Honor World Champion and a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and since I found out that WWE release him, that could be in the cards, but, I highly think he maybe gunning for the ROH World title from Cody (Rhodes) to be a three time ROH World Champion, since he was the one to have the most reigns, until Adam Cole won it three times, which the first due to a tournament, second due to beating Jay Lethal in Vegas, and third when he beat Kyle O'Reilly in New Japan Pro Wrestling Wrestle Kingdom 11, which ROH management allow that to happen and New Japan Pro Wrestling bosses approved it.

I also could see Keith Lee challenge the title, but, Kenny needs to study him a bit. Highly recommend for Kenny to go watch Keith's matches against Chris Hero, one being Beyond Wrestling. I would like to see Kenny vs. Tim Donst, but, Donst feels weird when the last time he was in Japan due to him not knowing anyone, but, he could be friends with The Elite, if Kenny and The Young Bucks has no problem with. But, I don't think so, since I would like to see Donst in Germany wrestling in wXw, if he beats David Starr for the wXw Shotgun title in NOVA Wrestling. Another wrestler who Kenny could face and may do it in Japan is Benjamin Boone. I know I am being weird on this one, but, both men are in great shape and it would be interesting to see how these two go at it, plus Ben said that he really want to go to Japan!

There might be one wrestler that Kenny could get injured from, since he stated in the show that going up against Minoru Suzuki in the G1 Climax, he would be injured by him, is Matt Riddle. Riddle is a former UFC fighter and he is currently the World Wrestling Network Champion. It would be crazy to see this happen, but, I highly doubt he won't wrestle, since Riddle is committed to WWN and he said that he want to be in the WWE, but, that only happens if he becomes the Evolve Champion.

I could list more and give my reasons, but, this blog is about Kenny Omega and the one man who he wants to face in the finals of the G1 Climax, KOTA IBUSHI!

Yes, but, why? Why did Kenny said that? Why could it be anyone else? There is a reason why and we may see the side of Kenny Omega that some haven't seen in a while. From what I recall from the stream, Kenny said that he felt that Kota desert him to be a heavyweight wrestler, while he (Kenny) was a junior heavyweight wrestler in New Japan, but, them as a tag team in DDT Pro and some time in New Japan, was a whole another story. All I know is the fire in Kenny's eyes were so determine that he wants to face Kota Ibushi in the finals of the G1 Climax. Kenny said that the comedy side of him will come out and he knows that Kota will be too. I know that he has a lot of other wrestlers that he has to go through, like for instance as I said before, going up against Minoru Suzuki, who had been in MMA boughs and Kenny knows that he could be injured in the tournament, like what he was last year, when he cut his back in a match and it was bad, but, he got patch for it. Also Kenny says that if Suzuki-gun interferes in their match, he will have Bullet Club to go after them. So, they will on standby if Suzuki-gun starts a war against Kenny Omega. Another one he mention was Juice Robinson. Kenny said that Robinson had been in WWE and he was wondering why he did leave WWE to be in New Japan and Robinson says that he wanted to be in the G1 Climax, but, it took for Robinson for a while to get in this year's. I am not keen on Juice Robinson, since his time in WWE NXT roster, since the only feud that he had was against Tyler Breeze and if I recall, Chris Hero had called Breeze, the Booty Man...okay, no more!

Kenny also talk about wrestling against Bad Luck Fale and he wants Fale to give him his best. He mentions about Seiya Sanada and he don't like what Sanada has become and wants Sanada to be the wrestler that he was before Los Ingobernables de Japon, which Kenny mention about Sanada's time in All Japan Pro Wrestling and TNA Wrestling, which I do agree, because the Seiya Sanada I seen in TNA Wrestling on TV was the best, because he beat Austin Aries for the TNA X-Division title before Aries got the title back from him. Kenny mention that Takaaki Watanabe aka EVIL, is the future, which I do agree, but, I am still mad at him for biting Chris Hero's face at Smash Wrestling back in 2014. Kenny better protect his face from Watanabe!

I know some would want to see someone else, like Skits, my friend, wants Zack Sabre Jr to win, but, I am not sure to see a member of Suzuki-gun to win the tournament or the leader of Suzuki-gun. There is some others that could win if New Japan don't give Ibushi vs. Omega in the finals, which one I want to see Hiroshi Tanahashi or maybe Kazuchika Okada, which it would be weird if the IWGP Heavyweight Champion wins it. But, he will be wrestling against Omega in the tournament. Of course, Kenny will be going up against Michael Elgin, but, I can't see Elgin to win and I am really livid that he whoop Tim Donst and Chris Hero in matches, with against Donst in AIW and Hero in IWA Mid-South. I really want Kenny Omega to make it to the finals of the G1 Climax and Kota Ibushi too, because it is destine for both to go at it to see who is the best and if so, let their comedy side that they done in DDT Pro would be nice and I hope Nick and Matt Jackson get some footage of that match and use it for their Being The Elite YouTube Channel. What? I have to think like a YouTuber too and some of their matches do get on the channel.

Well, that's all of what I am going to say.

Until then...

...what? Oh, who do I want to win in the finals? Kenny Omega, duh. I like him as who he is and I have an article of him being interviewed from SLAM Sports that he wrestled against a cute nine year old girl in DDTPro, which I don't find it offensive, but KAWAII!

No, he is not a pervert nor a pedophile, morons!

Real Abuse vs. Fake Abuse

Note: I do not condone abuse. It is not humane and it is wrong. I want to state the difference between the two.

A lot of things are going on within the last 24 hours or so since I find out that Saraya-Jade Bevis, otherwise known as the raven hair WWE Diva, Paige, has got abuse from her fiancee, Alberto Rodriguez, otherwise known as Alberto El Patron in TNA, formally Alberto Del Rio of his time in WWE. Several reports from Ryan Satin, who founded and owns Pro Wrestling Sheet says that Alberto has been investigated by Orlando police and TNA Wrestling says that they are investigating this too. A witness, who is a fan of the 24 year old, says that Alberto was doing coke (not soda, drugs) and was being abusive to Saraya-Jade. There is a plea by her brothers, Zak and Roy, who says a lot that they want their sister back and they know that what he done. Zak also says that his sister had this happen before with another wrestler, Brad Maddox.

I know this is heartbreaking. This is real. This is happening to a young woman.

However, what is going on with me?

I was being accused of abuse by my father.

He claims that I force my mother to mow the lawn and calls me a lazy bad person. I got upset when he e-mail me this. He feels this is abuse and he does his fatherly duty to straighten me out.

However, this is 100% false.

You see, my mother tells me that her side of the story is that she wanted to check the lawn mower has gas in it. I was not forcing her. I was mostly was doing YouTube. Playing Minecraft and vlogging on how I caught my brother not telling the truth, since he did not finish mowing the lawn. It was simple really, went outside as I was told to get the recycle bin from the sidewalk to bring back to the yard to close to the house. That is when I turn around and see it. I told my mother. She confronting him.

My mother told me that my father just drove by and have not said a word. He sees what he sees and then falsely accuse me of abuse.

I was so upset. I told my mother. She was not happy of what he said. She told me to delete the e-mail as he was pushing my buttons as what she says.

You know as this means messing my emotions or triggering me.

I would never force someone. I would die then force. It's not me. So, because of that hate my father use on me by making some fake abuse, I made this poem, which I did record it:



I was upset that my father would accuse me of this, but, at the end of this, I know I had to put it in a positive light by what my goals are after I talk who I enjoy on YouTube and somehow the three names I thought about, was on my mind, since I wanted to see two of them, who are gamers, which both do Minecraft, which one does other games and the other does Roblox, and the third is part of a YouTube series that has 100k of subs and not to mention that he is also a pro wrestler and the inaugural IWGP United States Champion.

I know that the real situation of the abuse coming from Saraya-Jade is not healthy and it's terrible. I hope she gets away from Alberto and be with her family. Especially since her uncle is dying.

My thoughts on the outcome of NJPW Dominion & my prediction on some of the matches in the NJPW G1 Special in Los Angeles

Note: These contain spoilers of the New Japan Pro Wrestling Dominion show and I highly suggest you go watch it before you read this.


This is going to be very crazy, but, I had a feeling of what is going on right now as of late with watching New Japan Pro Wrestling Dominion show as I will be hopefully watching the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Special in Los Angeles by going on to Sling TV to open a 7 day free trial account, so at least I can watch Jim Ross call the matches with Josh Barnett especially the Kenny Omega vs. Michael Elgin in the first round of the IWGP United States Championship Tournament.

I know this is going to be very weird, but, before I focus on the G1 Special, I want to address the Dominion show. What do I think about it? Well, until the final two matches, I thought it was okay in a way, but, with KUSHIDA winning the IWGP Junior Heavyweight title was fine and The Young Bucks and Guerrillas of Destiny winning the tag titles were good and in a heel way, the two matches were standing out the most were the IWGP Intercontinental Championship that had Hiroshi Tanahashi defeated Tetsuya Naito for it, which I really wanted Tanahashi to win, due to what I saw on Twitter that from the gifs creators on twitter that Naito was disrespecting the IWGP Intercontinental Championship by damaging the title in one of the matches during the Best of the Super Juniors tournament days. The other match was the main event between Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega, which it was a rematch from the Wrestle Kingdom show, that ended up to be a time limit drawl, which I would love to see them go longer, which I will explain that later on.

When I watching the show, the IWGP Intercontinental Championship match, the comments from both Tanahashi and Naito was hard to understand, but, the video footage says it all. Naito damage the title that he disrespect it and Tanahashi wanted restore the honor of the title, since he beat Shinsuke Nakamura for it in 2014. I feel that Tanahashi was indeed the one to defeat Naito, since he confronted Naito on the final day of the Best of the Super Juniors tournament and challenge him.for the title. I never felt that I would choose someone who is outstanding as Hiroshi Tanahashi, but since Tanahashi is consider to be a legend and has been wrestling for almost 18 years, I had to go with him and as crazy as it seems, he is a rockstar to the fans. Tanahashi being the best IWGP Intercontinental Champion since the inaugural champion, MVP, who should had more title runs in WWE before he left, but didn't.

As for the main event between Kazuchika Okada against Kenny Omega, I never see two men would go far as they could with only two counts was going, the rest of the Bullet Club showing up in support for Kenny without interfering the match, Cody almost costing Kenny the match by throwing the towel, but Nick and Matt stop him, Gedo by himself watching Okada almost losing the match or almost winning the match, no sign of the rest of Chaos because Roppongi Vice were embarrassed and other members of Chaos were recovering from the beating of the gauntlet or were part of the lumberjack death match between Hirooki Goto against the leader of Suzuki-gun, Minoru Suzuki, who is the current NEVER Openweight Champion. The match ended to a drawl, but, I felt they could go for another 35 minutes or so, because I really wanted Kenny Omega to win and if they would gone for 95 minutes, they would be the longest match ever and beating the match that currently stands out there of 93 minutes of a championship match that was in IWA Mid-South between two guys who you and I know, goes by the names of CM Punk and Chris Hero. Yes, Chris Hero won the IWA Mid-South Heavyweight title in 93 minutes against CM Punk and if those two could do it, I feel Okada and Omega can for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and beat it.

But, I know that wouldn't happen, because after the match, both Okada (Who got confronted by Cody, who he's challenging him at the G1 Special in Los Angeles, as well as he is already challenging Christopher Daniels for the Ring of Honor World Championship at Best of The World) and Omega (Who said that he failed as the leader of the Bullet Club, but, The Young Bucks and the rest of the Bullet Club says that he has not failed them) really was going to pass out from the match. It was sad enough that nether man won or lost. But, they both deserve my respect as a fan that both of them really make me enjoy the match.

Now, to the G1 Special and the matches that is making me kinda worried. Kenny Omega vs. Michael Elgin. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? I am wondering who made that decision to book that match for the first round of the IWGP United States Championship Tournament? I am kinda freaking out because Elgin has already whoop Kenny and I hate Elgin for beating Tim Donst over at Absolute Intense Wrestling for the Absolute title and also beating CHRIS HERO in IWA Mid-South to challenge the champion! WHY? WHY ELGIN? Kenny has his work cutout and if HE CAN BEAT MICHAEL ELGIN, he has to face what he wanted out of Adam Page, to win the IWGP United States Championship!

As for Okada, he has his work cutout too. Because Cody, the son of WWE Hall of Famer, Dusty Rhodes, is on a title spree as he is going to be challenging Christopher Daniels for the Ring of Honor World Championship at Ring of Honor Best in the World 2017 and if Daniels lose the title and Cody does the same to Okada and Okada lose the title too, Cody will be the FACE OF BOTH RING OF HONOR AND NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING as their champion! Cody will carry two titles and he will be book on all ROH and NJPW shows! Also that would put him in the spotlight of Being the Elite YouTube series, which it could be bad in my opinion, because there will be no love for Marty Scurll or the Elite (The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega) themselves. In fact it would be Cody for the next few months until he loses both titles!

I know this is so much crazy as I said before in the beginning of this, but, that is what I am expecting the outcome it would be on night 1 of the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Special. Either that or the opposite of what I said. I would want Okada to retain because I want to see Okada and Omega go at it one more time with no time limit, if Omega does get eliminated in the first round of the IWGP United States Championship tournament or anywhere else in the tournament.

I hope you all understand what I am saying. Thanks for reading!

Will Tim Donst be ever booked again?

I don't know what is going on with Tim Donst, since he was not wrestling last weekend. He was hanging with his cousin's wife while she was on Twitch streaming games, which I could not watch them, due to my laptop I am using is acting up and really bites when it comes to streaming and watching videos. But, enough about me, this is about Tim Donst. As you are well know that I am very worried that he has not been booked for this weekend, Absolute Intense Wrestling JT Lighting Tournament, because he's their champion, the Absolute Champion and for the last few tournaments that I am well known about, because of Tim, this is the second time he is not in the JT Lighting Tournament. You are wondering, "Why it is the second time?" and I am going to explain.

Two years ago, Tim Donst did not part take in it due to his health. He had a tumor on his right kidney and had to get it removed, which he could not wrestled until he was cleared to wrestle, which he had after the tournament ended. The following year, he did, but did not win. As far as I been following that promotion, I don't know why, but, at least the Absolute Champion would be booked, but, now I don't know if Donst will be booked, since he is the Absolute Champion, he might be.

But, that's not the only promotion I am worried. Combat Zone Wrestling has not been booking Tim Donst either. I don't recalled when he wrestled last with CZW, but, I don't know if he will be booked with them, but, he needs to be booked with them. At least for another Tournament of Death, since he was in it last year and got featured in a documentary by Vice on HBO and on the Vice YouTube Channel. I don't know if that really helped out Donst's popularity, but, at least they show him as what happened, when he lost to Rickey Shane Page in the first round.

I wish other promotions could book him, like Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, AAW, Beyond Wrestling, Progress Wrestling, Smash Wrestling, and New Japan Pro Wrestling, just to name a few. I wish I could advocate for him, but, that's really up to him and his fellow wrestlers who are currently in them. It would be worth it that he would wrestle in PWG, so Skits could see him wrestle live. I feel he would be going up against some of the legends and icons of New Japan. Heck, if he was in AAW, he would go up against Sami Callihan or put on a clinic against Eddie Kingston. Progress Wrestling or any of the UK wrestling promotions should book Donst against Marty Scurll, Pete Dunne (If he is allowed to, since he has a contract with WWE), Tyler Bate (Same thing), and Zack Sabre Jr., just to name a few. I don't know how I can put this, but, this is one thing I know.

But, one, which that may force him to be permanently be signed with them and maybe scouted by WWE is World Wrestling Network, mostly with Evolve and FIP, but, that means he can't go nowhere without permission.  However, he maybe scouted by WWE talent agents and could be considering to be signed with WWE, which it could be very bad, because of money that I can't afford to watch.

I am just putting into my thoughts into this and deep down inside, I would answer my own question:

Will Tim Donst be ever booked again?


Yes, he will.
