Pro Wrestler Sues Opponent After Botched Low Blow Ends His Career

Just when I thought I had seen it all…

The Courier-Journal is reporting that a former pro wrestler is suiting a promoter and a former opponent for failing to properly carry out a pre-arranged low blow which saw him suffer a career-ending kick to the groin.

John Levi filed a lawsuit today in Clark Circuit Court in Indiana against his opponent Clinton Woosley (who works under the name Guido Andretti) for rupturing his right testicle during a match last June.

            Also, his post wasn't abbreviated. It should have read: "Low blowS SHOULD be BANNED."

            No abbreviations.

    A kick to the groin??? Aaaaggghhhh I'm cringing just imagining that. I've seen low blow 'punches' but a low blow kick?! C'mon now.

      Flair did it multiple times I think, Orton did the same to Shawn Michaels back before, but the way Shawn sold it was priceless, this has been done a lot now that I think on it, botched ones haven't.

  • Mojo

    Suing an opponent for a botched move? That takes balls.

    I have worked with both of these guys and Clinton Woosley is unprofessional not only did this happen but a couple months back he got fired from a company because he had a fan text the promoter to see if he would win a match or not and he said if he wasn’t going to win he wouldn’t show up for the match

      Hmm. I don't know how it is in Indiana, but down here in Texas, when someone's being an arse about things like that, we have a tendency to…I don't know…work a little more than stiff. Potatoes tend to fly at said person's face. That kind of behavior makes me sick. How much does he get paid per appearance? Unless it's above $300, he has no room for ego…even then, there shouldn't be room for ego. But we get guys down here that get paid $20 max for a match and they strut around and demand that they get put over or that they get a full 3 month program. Bro, we just paid for your gas money, and I can find another worker…SHEESH. Sorry…went off on a tangent. Gonna go take some meds now. /rant

    All it takes is one nut to ruin the wrestling business

      So many testicle puns

    • Your friend just might be kirwong for one of these scam sites. I know because my mothers friend worked with a company once that payed her to review stores and such but in the end it was a scam. The only way i can see you getting a job is by going to a major company that sells anroids.

    ouch that made my balls hurt

  • Paul

    Bollocks to that

  • Matt

    I'm in pain just reading this article title.

  • MsMojoRisin

    I thought i seen it all

  • Alex

    When I first saw the title of the article, my mind immediately thought this was a story about tna wrestling. It would seem I'm wrong. Still I hope the guy will be ok.

    Why wasn't the idiot wearing a cup in the first place if it was a planned low blow? He should have been prepared for an accident. Accidents happen and he could have prevented his own injury by wearing a cup just to be on the safe side.

    • MPXTheChoice

      Nobody wears a cup in professional wrestling…unless you're Road Dogg facing Chyna at King of the Ring and the spot involves a gimmicked METAL cup.

      A low blow of any kind is supposed to hit the upper/inner thigh (Flair was painfully obvious about where he was hitting)…or the recipient is supposed to jump to sell the move (look at HBK). From what I've heard about this guy from the above comment, it would appear that he either didn't know where to hit him, or didn't care where he hit him.
