People make bots for no reason. I know one guy that made a bot to go after Jon Popper from Blues Traveler. Popper was so incensed after he learned he was had by a bot that he dox'd the dude. 

Jon Popper vanitysearches himself on Twitter (or at least he used to). So it goes both ways.

No change in an update from Z1. Based on an image just before the impact into the buckle, I'm not sure what would have went wrong because it doesn't look super unsafe or anything. Either he hit just wrong or it's accumulated damage I would guess.

An unwelcome reminder that wrestling is dangerous, what wrestlers put themselves through for their love for it and our love for it as fans of the great sport. This fucking sucks. Thoughts go out to Shinjiro Ohtani, his family and friends at this difficult time.

I'll just post the image of the German Suplex to Otani as it doesn't look like anything severe, but I'll throw it in a spoiler tag anyway.

What's this news about Abdullah The Butcher being broke and illiterate?

James

Saw the same article you did. Doesn’t surprise me if so...the claim was he lost the Hannibal case because he never checks his mail or is able to read. His wife also took everything in a divorce.

I donated to Abbie's GoFundMe and all I got was this lousy thank you letter written in broken Sudanese and some Hep C.

Not even chicken and ribs?

Now that's pro wrestling as fuck.

I assumed Otani was much older than he actually is. He must have been in his early 20s when he popped up in WCW for a minute.

Hoping for the best, even though the initial reports (sparse as they are) don't sound good.

Of all these crazy wrestling things I’ve seen. Abdullah getting zapped in the Chamber of Horrors match might still be up there.  11 year old me loved that match, I don’t care what Wrestlecrap says, that match single handedly encapsulated Halloween.  The good guys defeat the evil monster when the evil monsters own buddy pulls the lever. To deliver a “shocking” badly produced and slightly camp finale.

Wrestlecrap? More like Wrestleawesome!

I loved a good bloody Abdullah brawl, but for whatever reason that Chamber of Horrors match is burned into my memory. I’ll gladly chip in to help out one of my all time favourites

RD Reynolds is wrong all the time, but especially about early '90s WCW.

The man panned Slam Jam. Slam Jam is fucking GREAT. 

How are you going to hate on Don't Step to Ron or Simply Ravishing?

He should have had his site shut down just for that.

The first time I ever saw Abby was when International Wrestling from Montreal aired a "coming soon" video of him brutalizing Dino Bravo in a New Japan ring. That was my first taste if japanese wrestling as well. I must have been 6 or 7 years old and Abby terrified me.

I've probably typed this on here but the Halloween Havoc 91 tape was rented by me a few times when I got into wrestling a few years later, so the stupid Chamber of Horrors match holds a bit of fondness with me

What better time to announce a big show in Wales, than a few weeks after releasing Nixon Newell?

Also since it’s a WCW videotape, there’s parts of Havoc 91 which weren’t on the tape that I’ve never seen.

Wonder if the WWE would be able to do a stadium event in Scotland to finish the series of huge UK events.
