Mae Young Classic competitor and independent wrestler, Priscilla Kelly, has fired back at critics of a controversial move she used recently. Kelly was performing on a Surbaban Fight Pro match last month when she took out a tampon from her ring gear and shoved it in her opponent’s mouth. A fan posted a video of the incident on Twitter and it has gotten the attention of the wrestling world on social media.

Wrestling Personalities Criticise Priscilla Kelly’s Tampon Spot
Impact Wrestling Hall-of-Famer, Gail Kim, was critical of the spot on Twitter. “I’m seeing this post of a women’s match that got disgusting and I’m not gonna repost it Bc it’s seriously a disgrace,” Kim wrote. “Why??? Whoever thought that was a spot that was gonna get a pop and was worth it….. NO. how about telling a story in the ring with your wrestling instead?”
Some have compared the move with Joey Ryan’s “Penis Suplex”. Ryan also issued a comment regarding the move.
“I would never censor anyone’s artistic creativity,” Ryan wrote. “To each their own. The telltale sign will be if it connects with an audience. If it finds an audience then can it really be considered wrong? If it doesn’t then it’ll die. You can’t stop change. Trying will only make you bitter.”
Road Dogg criticized the spot while responding to a joke from Hurricane Helms on Twitter.
This stuff is the reason some people despise our industry. It’s got nothing to do with “taking life seriously” it’s about dignity and a personal pride. She obviously has none!

To which Joey Ryan responded:
Would you say the same about Mae Young? Or is period blood somehow worse than placenta? Cause they showed that shit on TV. Honest question. https://t.co/njIQPxQ3DU

Hey guys. Ya know, it's all fake.

A penis is funny and awesome.
A vagina is disgusting and trashy. #Equality?
