Everyone knows that professional wrestling is a high-risk endeavor: there’s a chance of getting injured, each and every time a competitor steps inside the ring. Every man and woman that’s ever laced up a pair of boots accepts this as reality, and as part of the high cost of doing business while living the wrestling life. With that in mind, we have several updates on wrestlers who are (or have been) injured this year:
RAVEN LAKE. As mentioned on August 26 at the Shake, Rattle and Sapphire event, Raven was brutally assaulted at her home by Ravenous Randy and the Von Slashers on the night of Saturday, August 25. The attack left her unable to travel to Kelowna for the Sapphire show, but she vows to be back in action very soon. As history teaches us, wrestlers do not press charges…they get revenge: Riea Von Slasher best be on notice.
ADAM RYDER. Adam is slated for hernia surgery this week; this injury was suffered while training, and has kept him out of action since March. Ryder hopes to be in attendance at the Rutland September Days event on Sept. 22, but won’t be hitting the ring anytime soon. Big West Wrestling wishes him a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!
THE MAD DOG. Marty returned to the ring on Sunday, August 26, after missing 24 weeks due to a non-wrestling back injury. Although he failed to overcome the odds (battling Ravenous Randy & Riea Von Slasher in a Mixed Handicap Match, with Rigor Von Slasher causing trouble at ringside) at the Sapphire, he’s been medically cleared to continue wrestling. Although after smashing The Honky Tonk Man’s guitar over Cremator Von Slasher’s head, The Mad Dog might end up permanently retired…whether he likes it or not.
