WILW: Rosemary

Over the last couple of years, we here at Why I Love Wrestling have focused on “creepy” wrestlers both good and bad. And while it would have been possible to do the same thing for this year’s edition of Geekade’s 31 Days of Halloween, this time I decided to focus on a few different things. I would be remiss however, if I did not dedicate a few lines to Rosemary. Rosemary is one of the few bright spots on Impact Wrestling. Impact as a company has been all over the place the last few years with very few marquee spots. The former TNA has seen ownership changes, talent exodus, money problems, production problems, etc. They have become a second rate promotion in the US which is a damn shame, as TNA at one time was a serious contender to WWE and ROH, and had talent to spare. And while the depth certainly isn’t the same, the stars they do have are big-time performers. Rosemary may very well be at the top.

Originally performing as Courtney Rush among other names, Rosemary started her Impact career as a valet for the stable Decay. It was after months of TV time that Rosemary finally had a match and she immediately made an impact. (no pun intended) From the first time she popped up on TV, introducing the new stable Decay featuring Crazy Steve, (I know… I know) and the Monster Abyss, you could tell Rosemary had something. Speaking in riddles, quoting Alice in Wonderland, the facepaint, the music, everything was there for a big time star.

Once she made her in-ring debut, there was no longer any doubt that Rosemary was the real deal. She is insanely good in the ring, has great psychology, and has a singular look among female superstars. (plus she spits green mist which is always awesome) She has incredible presence and could go on to be on the biggest names in women’s wrestling ever. Check the videos below to see what I mean and check back next week for another reason to love wrestling. Until then,,,

Dan Ryan

Dan Ryan was once the most feared and respected luchador in the world until the "Great DDT Disaster of '85" where Dan unfortunately DDT'd his opponent so hard into the ground that he opened a gate to the underworld that let unholy things into this world. After that, Dan refused to wrestle anymore but he's found new life writing and talking about his favorite hobbies here at Geekade. He pens the weekly Why I Love Wrestling series, co-hosts The Stone Age Gamer Podcast, expertly pairs video games with beer, and much, much more. Dan is a personality that Geekade simply would not be the same without.
