GFW/Impact Wrestling star Laurel Van Ness attacked wrestling promoters on Twitter, saying they don’t pay women fairly.

“Promoters, NO you can not just pay me what YOU think is fair,” she wrote. “It’s unbelievably disrespectful to assume you can pay me what YOU want. Why? Because I’m female? Women are now bringing to the table just as much, if not MORE, than any male. Women are drawing crowds. Women are putting on main events. So no, I will not take your $50 to go out there & put my body at risk, because you don’t care to ask me how much I charge. Oh and, DEAR PROMOTER: Welcome to 2017.”

She also posted the following on Instagram, announcing the upcoming launch of her website.

Super excited to launch my website and offer fitness programs for you all!! Get ready to WORK thoughhh 💦 #NoShortcuts #GetItRight
