Scarlett Bordeaux Comments On Fan Incident At AAA Verano de Escandalo 2019

Add yet another fan-wrestler incident to the growing list in recent weeks.

At the AAA Verano de Escandalo 2019 event on Sunday evening in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, which also featured the Lucha Bros recapturing the AAA Tag-Team Championships by defeating The Young Bucks in the main event, Scarlett Bordeaux was grabbed by a fan during a match.

Bordeaux partnered with Lady Shani and Taya Valkyrie in a six-woman tag-team match against the trio of Chik Tormenta, La Hiedra and Tessa Blanchard. As the Impact Wrestling Knockout and pro wrestling veteran was getting back to her feet on the outside of the ring during the contest, an overzealous fan reached over and grabbed her from behind.

This led to her partner, Lady Shani, helping to pull her away from the barricade and the fans, and back to the ring.

After the show, Scarlett Bordeaux took to social media to comment on the incident.

"It is NEVER okay to touch a performer without their consent," Bordeaux wrote via her official Twitter page (@Lady_Scarlett13). "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."

Bordeaux added, "[Thanks] to [Lady Shani] for having my back."

This led to a back-and-forth exchange involving Bordeaux and several fans talking about what is and isn't appropriate interaction between fans and pro wrestlers at live events.

Bordeaux was criticized for dressing in such a way that provokes this kind of behavior, which, of course, she took exception to.
