This didn’t happen this week but I just saw it this week and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it ever since. Someone posted a clip on Facebook of a pro wrestler getting hurt and it is just brutal. The wrestler’s name is Charade and he was wrestling The Black Baron for Beyond Pro Wrestling.
Charade was attempting to do a moonsault and landed very badly on his head/neck. The amazing thing is that when his opponent went for the pin Charade tried to kick out, but a second pin attempt ended the match. It turns out the Charade suffered a broken neck! He is now recovering from that injury (I think he’s lucky to be alive) but needs help with the medical bills.
I wanted to draw attention to a benefit show that is taking place on November 4 in Bridgewater, MA to help Charade pay some of his medical bills. Here’s Sugar Dunkerton with the info:
And here’s a recent interview that Charade did (just so you can see that he’s still alive!)
And now, here’s the match where the injury occurred. It’s in the last minute of the clip and I have to warn you that it’s pretty nasty!
Here’s a link to the page where you can either buy tickets to the benefit event or just simply donate money to the cause. (click the graphic below)
