Former full-time Impact Wrestling Knockout Rebel has hit headlines in India with a feud with a Bollywood actress.
Rebel, currently touring India with the Continental Wrestling Entertainment promotion, hit a Bodyslam onto Bollywood film actress Rakhi Sawant in an in-ring segment before ‘twerking’ over the fallen woman. The incident has been news for several media outlets in India, and the actress has used her Instagram account to claim the slam injured her along with doing interviews from her hospital bed.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet described the sitation as “wrestling is still real in India”. Meanwhile Rebel herself, who is the RCW Women’s Champion and a former full-time Impact Wrestling Knockout, has claimed that the media in India is harassing her. “Reporters finding out my hotel & having the front desk call me, telling me to come down?! …So annoyed!”
