She asked for her rights, so he beat her
The attack on the announcer came after she demanded her rights, and the payment of their financial dues was delayed, as there was a verbal altercation that developed into a beating and dragging by her manager.
The announcer announced that she had injuries to the face and foot, stressing her total rejection of any attempts at reconciliation and concession.
