Abstract Tumblr Themes

My thoughts, my interests, my fandoms. My life. Quite literally the world I know.

There’s been a lot of improvement in the treatment of women in wrestling as of late. Sara Del Rey took over training the Divas for WWE, bringing a new level of respect to that division; companies like SHIMMER and SHINE have been running strong with all-women shows; Inspire Pro has a strong roster populated with plenty of talented, brilliant ladies. All in all it’s been pretty peachy to be a fan of women in wrestling and it’s been great to be a lady in the crowd at shows.

Then you have things like what happened today.

For those unaware, there’s been a storyline thing going with DJ Hyde – of CZW fame and late of WSU, because apparently he owns it all now – and Jessicka Havok. Havok was banned from WSU and tonight both companies held a joint event. Hyde told Havok, in so many words, that she had a match against Mia Yim, and that if she won she could have her job back. If not?

She had to suck his dick.

There’s no polite way to put it. That’s what he said. And that, my friends, is fucking gross.

I realize wrestling is, by and large, a sport of fantasy and real-world escapism. I realize that it is “fake”, it is “scripted”, it is pre-determined, but how many women in wrestling have heard catcalls and chants of “Slut” and “Whore” and “Bitch”? How many have had to take shit bookings from crappy promoters because that’s the only way they could do what they loved? How many have been told that the only reason they’ve gotten anywhere is because they’re fucking X wrestler (or X number of wrestlers)? From the Bellas to AJ Lee to what happened today, it’s still an issue.

It shouldn’t be. Women have busted their ass all over the world to excel at this sport and be good at it without having to rely on tits, ass and selling themselves to make it. They have proven that through sheer drive and effort and good hard honest work that they are just as equal as men are. They have bled and sweated and worked their asses off to entertain fans and prove their worth and for a while that’s good enough, more than good enough, for everyone.

Then this asshole comes along and has to use his dick and the fact that he has one as a threat. I can’t take that lightly. As a woman and as a wrestling fan, I know wrestling is better than this. I know women deserve better than this.

This is not an indictment of the wrestlers who work for CZW or WSU. I support the wrestlers always, and I respect them.

But as a person, I cannot respect CZW or WSU as companies anymore. This won’t matter to anyone but me and DJ Hyde won’t lose sleep over what the fuck some idiot blogger had to say, much less one with a vagina, and that’s fine. Some of you will come after me and call me a baby, and worse, for not getting it and not understanding wrestling is fake and that Havok most likely signed off on what Hyde said. That’s also fine.

But knowing women hear shit like this every day? That people are forced to do things like this every day to have a place to live, to have money, to keep jobs in the real world, to keep from being killed?

I’m not fucking fine with that.

Spot on. It’s stupid shit like this that makes me embarrassed and ashamed to be a professional wrestling fan. Wrestling is better than lowest common denominator tactics like this, but idiots like DJ Hyde just don’t seem to understand that.

It’s beautiful because Sami looks like he’s about to maul you and Ambrose looks like he’s going to film it or something. (He looks so smarmy.)

Hey guys, I’m sure all (or at least a large chunk) of my wrestling followers are familiar with Larry Sweeney, and I’m sure some of you have already seen this, but I hadn’t until a few minutes ago. The link takes you here, where you can bid on a bunch of different things and all of the profits go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of Alex “Larry Sweeney” Whybrow as part of their Out of the Darkness walk on September 20th. 
I know if would mean a lot to me, in addition to tons of others, if you guys could check it out, even if you don’t know a lot about him. There are a few non-wrestling items up for grabs, some pretty exclusive setups (Dinner with Roderick Strong at the Squared Circle, 4 ROH VIP tickets + a meet and greet at Death Before Dishonor in Chicago, etc), some ring worn gear, all kinds of stuff. I don’t know if they’re planning on adding more to it, but please do check it out and reblog it so other people can see it too!

Reblogging this over here as well.
