Pro Wrestler John Levi Miller Suing Opponent for Rupturing His Testicle
Just reading the headline makes me cringe.
We all know that wrestling is fake, but the physical activity in the ring is very real. It is the reason wrestlers as they get older they start walking around like a retired NFL player.
There is a lot of wear and tear on your body.
With that being said I don’t think any wrestler expects this to happen.
A former professional wrestler is suing his opponent and the Indiana-based promoter who arranged their bout last year, claiming his foe was supposed to lose their match but had other ideas and kicked him so hard in the crotch that one of his testicles ruptured and had to be removed.
John Levi Miller, 23, contends in his lawsuit filed Monday that Clinton Woosley was the “heel,” a term used to describe the designated villain or loser, of their match last June, The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reported. He says Woosley, who wrestles under the name Guido Andretti, declined his invitation to map out the fight, as is customary, and instead said he understood the plan and that “it would be OK.” However, Miller says Woosley tried to win and kicked him hard in the crotch.
When you see Wrestlers get kicked or punched to the groin it is more slight of hand (or foot), you aren’t suppose to really do it. He had to hit him very hard to the point it had to be removed.
Once again I am still cringing.
