• Shoot Fight Broke Out On This Week’s AEW Dynamite (Details)
On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa defeated Ivelisse to retain her Title.
As seen during the match, Ivelisse did not sell some of the moves of Rosa.
You can watch one of the spots where Ivelisse no sold Rosa’s move below:
Fightful Select is reporting that things did indeed break down between the two women and they really started striking each other. Word backstage has been that Rosa and Ivelisse did not seem to get along even before the match.
Twitter user SoDuTw noted the following about it:
“Male NXT talents described it to me as the first shoot in AEW history. Multiple male talents walked away from ringside during the match in disgust – why the cut to tight sides.
The female locker took Rosa’s side and comforted her.
Keep in mind the match was taped and edited. What we saw was a salvaged version.
Talk of the match reached the NXT locker room instantly as it was so unprofessional. That is how I heard of it.”
