After taking a bump against the barrier Bordeaux gets up, only to be grabbed and restrained by someone ringside. Although Bordeaux claims to have been so focused she didn’t notice, Lady Shani saw the situation developing and freed Bordeaux from the moron.
After the event, Scarlett reviewed the tapes, noticed the obvious and took to social media to call out her assailant:
It is NEVER okay to touch a performer without their consent. I didn’t realize what happened until I watched the footage afterwards being so in the moment after a dive with my back turned otherwise I would have reacted much differently. Thnx to @LadyShaniAAA for having my back https://t.co/2YKT64sKIj

PETE DUNNE CALLS OUT NATHAN CRUZ
Pete Dunne has called out Nathan Cruz after Cruz tweeted about being independent and proud.
There was a time in my career that I was so fixated on getting that ‘big company’ contract that I couldn’t appreciate what I had.
Bad things happen for us to learn and grow.
I couldn’t be prouder to say that I am #INDEPENENT 17 days ?#wetheindependent

Nathan originally tweeted that he’d spent his past chasing the chance to work for a major promotion. He commented that while this had been happening he’d failed to appreciate fully he had accomplished. After remarking that he had to grow, he said that he was proud to be an independent wrestler.
Dunne obviously objected to the monologue, retweeted Nathan’s post commenting just with crying with laughter emoji’s:

Dunne clarified his stance immediately after, implying the Cruz had been “hazardous to the growth of independent wrestling” and was “jumping on a bandwagon because a contract never came their way.”
Dunne made clear his love for independent wrestling, pointing out that he continued to do so while being signed for a major promotion:
By the way, I love independent wrestling. I perform on the Indy’s out of choice whilst keeping a contract. I don’t love people who have been hazardous to the growth of independent wrestling over the years jumping on a bandwagon because a contract never came their way.
