People Are Pissed That This 12-Year-Old Got Chokeslammed At A Wrestling Show

As someone who doesn’t watch wrestling, I don’t see what the big problem is with chokeslamming a 12-year-old girl in the ring.

??@KillEFFY just chokeslammed Izzy at @PunkProWrestlin

— Claire (@mediumcore) August 26, 2018 Girl looks fine to me. Sure kids are obviously more fragile than adults, and chokeslamming someone could leave them with a ton of injuries – but isn’t all wrestling fake anyway? If you look closely the wrestler has his hand underneath her back to help mitigate how fast she falls to the ground, which is probably a lot gentler than what her dad would’ve done if he’d tried it. You know what my favorite game was when I was little? Getting tossed into the air by my dad, and then swung onto the carpet so I had a giant rug burn going up my back; one time I even hit a ceiling fan. I turned out A-OKAY.

But it appears most wrestling professionals don’t approve of Izzy’s chokeslam, as scores of them took to Twitter to express their disdain with the whole situation:

Who chokeslams a kid?!

No way a 12 year old's brain should be subject to pro wrestling bumps. Especially a chokeslam. WTF is wrong the adults in that situation?

— Sean Waltman (@TheRealXPac) August 29, 2018

I don’t agree with Izzy taking bumps, let alone being chokeslammed. It’s unfortunate that others felt differently. It’s also unfortunate her first match wasn’t at the school she’s trained at, where she is protected. But, we live and we learn. I hope promoters take note. ♥️

— Chelsea Green (@ImChelseaGreen) August 29, 2018 Now that we’ve officially established it’s apparently not cool to beat the snot outta kids in the wrestling ring, I think it’s safe to admit that we’ve all had those times where we wanted to chokeslam some piece of shit lil’ 12-year-old. There should honestly be some law where if the parents aren’t disciplining their kid in public, anyone who happens to be standing nearby can come and give them a whap on the head. Not a chokeslam – a whap. We’re not trying to get arrested here – you gotta save the chokeslams for when the kid is REALLY asking for it, like when they accidentally clip your heels while pushing a shopping cart.

Actually, I take that back – that should be punishable by death, and we can save the chokeslams for aspiring professionals like Izzy.

Thanks to everyone for their concerns. I am ok! I want everyone to know it was a one time match & I won’t be taking bumps for a long time. I’m still very proud of what we did in the ring. I promise that I am going to continue to train & chase my dream!

Love you all! ?❤️?

— Izzy (@ItsIzzyMania) August 29, 2018 And for the record…

True! Even though @KillEFFY was my opponent.....he made sure I was safe. Leva and Effy are two of the most incredible people I have ever been around in and out of the ring.

— Izzy (@ItsIzzyMania) August 29, 2018 …she was totally fine the whole time.
