Rosemary began training to become a professional wrestler after learning of Eddie Guerrero's death, which sparked her interest in the business. She was trained at Scott D'Amore's school in Canada where she was taught by Tyson Dux and Johnny Devine.
"All of those girls were just waiting for that opportunity. When it is given to them, they are going to run with it and show that it was the right choice to be given that ball. Some of them have been waiting for years," Rosemary continued.
Rosemary made her professional wrestling debut in 2008 and was signed by Impact Wrestling of January last year. Prior to that, she had a six-year run with Shimmer Women Athletes.
"Mercedes Martinez is one of the most respected women's wrestlers on the independent circuit, and it's finally her opportunity," said Rosemary. "All the exposure she deserves after so many years. All of us already knew, all of us knows she is the best, and finally, the rest of the world will get a glimpse of that as well. Absolutely no matter what age or how many years you have been doing this, it's all exposure and getting that chance, but it's up to you what you do with that chance. What bigger platform is there than an international market with the WWE and the Mae Young classic. It's a 100 percent a wonderful thing for these girls."
