Umaga - great gimmick, but a bit of a rapist.

Recommended Posts

Shelly 'Arial' Martinez throwing some hot allegations around these parts.

Quote

 

“I almost got raped when I was with WWE we were overseas and there was a guy that I was a guy and he wasn’t my boyfriend but I’m the kind of person who when I’m just dating somebody I only date one person at a time to see if I like them or whatever. I’m like a stage 4 clinger.”

“So what happened is that they separated us and since I was in ECW what would happen is half of us would go with Raw and half of us to go with SmackDown. So when they separated us there was a group of guys who said ‘Our goal is to see who the first one to get you now that they separated you.”

“I was like, ‘Dude it’s not even going to happen,” and he was like, ‘He’s not even your boyfriend, who cares?’ I was like I don’t care I like him. So it became some sick game and the next thing I know it was after a show and we were partying or whatever and the only reason why I don’t say the names right now or haven’t yet publically is because there is a lot that I don’t remember and I don’t want to be saying stuff that I don’t remember.”

“But I will say this and I’ve never said this before but there was a group of guys and one of them was Umaga and when they saw he was getting the most aggressive with me — they left and he got on top of me and I just prayed. One of my fears is being raped because when I was a little girl I had some sexual abuse stuff so it’s just something that I feared.”

“So I prayed because he’s a big guy. And I’m like, ‘Please don’t let this happen, please don’t let this happen.’ And it was one of those things where God gave me strength and I pushed him off of me and he fell to the floor and he got pissed and like left the room.”

“The next thing I can remember is being at a show the next night and venting to my girlfriend Melina about it — not telling anyone else and one of the guys yelled down, ‘Hey Melina, did you smarten her up yet?’ I was like, ‘smarten me up to what? To keep my mouth shut?!’ So I went right up to his face and I said I didn’t tell anyone except for her and I can’t remember everything else I said when I got in his face.”

“A lot of this I didn’t remember until a couple years ago and I was totally suppressing it.”

What a truly horrid company. I mean there are loads of alarm bells ringing with this story but none the less it still sounds like a bunch of juvenile pricks taking advantage of a girl who seemed to be intoxicated. 

It’s madness really that these types of stories are not more common. In a company full of drug abusing, paranoid pricks it is no surprise that this type of shit still happens. 

Hard to be surprised though when some of their biggest stars are Hulk ‘don’t get caught being racist’ Hogan, Shawn ‘used to drug and abuse women’ Michaels and Steve ‘beats his wife’ Austin.

one of them was Umaga

Who are the others? Umaga is the dead one who can't defend himself.

Sounds vile, but without victim-blaming there's a comment in there about when she was a little girl she had some sexual abuse "stuff" - weird way of putting it, but I can understand her wanting to downplay it.

It's one of those really murky things because in pretty much every shoot interview with Sean Oliver where they do the 'Ho Bag' both male and female wrestlers have not hesitated and gone 'Shelly Martinez? Ho-bag!' yet, knowing the culture at the time and just how sleazy the wrestling business is in general, this whole story is sadly unsurprising and the 'Have you smartened her up yet?' line is certainly one that I can believe was said.

Which is probably why she's only named him, because she feels safer to do so. Bit like the accusations that came out after Savile died.

Classy guys, really classy.  I see the #metoo movement hasn't extended to UKFF.

The InCel movement has though.

In one of the Nash interviews WITH Sean Oliver there's a story about Del Ray spiking some poor girls drink, then one side of head getting shaved, and her period spread up the wall of the hallway God Knows what they did to her whilst she was out of it. All said like it was nothing, though like the model citizens they are he and Calloway left as it was thought due to their size they would be remembered and dragged into the issue. 

One does wonder how many bribes Vince has had to dish out to stop the roster getting banged up. 

Hollywood probably isn't half as sordid and wrong as this business

Someone said it another thread, but if you look at the stuff that the likes of Marty Jannetty see fit to brag about in shoot interviews, I wouldn't want to begin to imagine what they keep quiet.

Like in a lot of male-centric insular environments, a lot of the stories we've all heard in books and shoot interviews are probably made up to pop the boys, or to paint someone else as a sexual deviant, but I have absolutely zero doubt that the industry is crammed full of wrong'uns that have been protected by the top brass forever. Between wrestling having spent much of its existence as a necessarily private, insular world, and the outside world's assumption that wrestling is so insignificant as to not be worth looking into, and that it's obviously full of deviant bullshit merchants, it's basically completely designed to protect talent from the outside world.

If anything high profile enough happens to kickstart a "#MeToo of Wrestling", the whole business is fucked. But would it need to be a Rock/Hogan level star, or Vince himself, with a mainstream publicity push behind it, to pick up any traction, and get any degree of justice, closure or even a fair hearing for any of those who have been affected. Even at the height of #MeToo, Randy Orton routinely getting his knob out in a hazing ritual didn't remotely bother the headlines.

 

Hell, just looking at current employees - at a time when you'd think the worst excesses of the past should be behind them, you've got a right rogue's gallery of (at one time or another) alleged sex pests, and that's just the few we know about.
