Former WWE Developmental Talent Fatally Stabs Woman In Tampa

Former WWE developmental talent Brian McGhee, 29, will be charged with murder after allegedly stabbing a woman multiple times at an apartment complex in Tampa on Wednesday night. She died at the scene as a result of her injuries. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

McGhee’s vehicle was spotted in Tampa and Hillsborough deputies, the Florida Highway Patrol and the Tampa Police Department were led on a high speed chase that ended when his vehicle crashed.

McGhee was transported to St.Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa for treatment. He’ll be charged with first-degree murder when released.

Nearly 30 minutes after the stabbing was reported, McGhee made a series of disturbing updates to his Facebook page. He also updated his profile picture, showing a cut arm with a bloody wound.

McGhee, whose WWE developmental contract ended in 2012, worked as Donovan Ruddick and D.T. Porter. The Tampa Tribune has more at this link.

    Really terrible that this has happened and I feel for the woman’s the family. Honestly I can’t help but feel WWE dodged a bullet here though, just imagine if he had been called up and this had happened. RIP

      pretty sure his “contract ending” was probably the reason this happened anyway. maybe depression, but who knows except him. but knowing how media works, wwe will still be blamed somehow since there name is attatched to him

        He posted a plea for help a while back. From what I heard from sources that knew him was that after WWE let him go things got rough. Bill DeMott fucked him up back. DeMott is supposed to be pretty racist and makes things harder on the non white talet

    Please put the word allegedly in the title, even if it is a formality its completely unprofessional to report it in the manner you have.

      In the world of journalism(if you can call Richard a journalist) if you don’t say things like allegedly before being convicted you can be sued. Even if he is later found guilty he can still sue.
