Adam Webb passed this along.
As mentioned, in the new Kindle book “The Making of Bloodstained Memoirs” the author David Sinnott critiques and offends fans of all-female wrestling shows. Commenting on a wrestling show in Paris, France headlined by Christy Hemme (who was just interviewed), Sinnott states:
“The show was held inside a strange looking and cramped venue with a very unique crowd. Whatever way you want to try and spin it – a small bunch of men at an all women’s wrestling show is a very odd environment. On surface value, it just looks as if these people were too shy to go to a strip club. The truth is, if we ended up going to this venue to film there is no way I would have carried on with the shoot. Unless I was presenting wrestling as some sort of freak show or circus act – there is no way any objective reviewer or distributor would take such footage seriously. It would give the impression that wrestling is an event frequented by a small number freaks and outcasts, and it would make the whole production seem like a joke. People who aren’t into wrestling couldn’t give two hoots about wrestling. The last thing you want to do is load the bullets and hand them the gun.”
Shimmer Tweeted in response: “They should’ve been more concerned with making a better documentary than they did rather than criticizing the wrestling fans.”
A fan Tweeted the Shimmer message to Bloodstained Memoirs whom replied (in regards to Shimmer): “I have no idea who that is.”
