    Jeeze, that sounds brutal. Glad you're going to be alright, sounds like it could have been much worse.

    Well, it goes somewhere for Lashley because Owens could be out with a legit knee injury anywhere from 4-8 months. I read that they're hoping it's a cleanup operation and nothing more serious, but he's been putting this off for a while apparently. They needed a heel to replace Owens, hence the double switch. They played that well with pro-Owens Chicago crowd.

    I'd be interested to see if KO comes back as a babyface after this. He's a great villain, but could be money as a sympathetic tweener.

I've been in the hospital since..it sucks here. My ref visited me and told me he knew I was hurt when I didn't convey the iggy.. and he grabbed my head to support it and i covered his hands in blood and seized up. (i would find out that I was bleeding from my ear canal.) If you guys want to know the whole story, I'll gladly share the events up till current events


    I love you all. I will be ok.
    Wishing you a speedy and full recovery

    I know I'm not the only one here who has been keeping you in my thoughts and sending good vibes your way, but I hope things are going well for you and you're recovering well.

    On the topic of Crown Jewel - it would be rad if the women boycotted/held Crown Jewel hostage by refusing to perform unless WWE cancels Crown Jewel.

    So, I'm finally home, finally have down time so now it's time for storytime. First things first, the show was IWC on October 6th, about 30 minutes from my house (Thank god!). IWC is the new company i wrestle for in the pittsburgh area..I just debuted there like two months ago as a surprise 3rd babyface in a storyline where the heels are killing off one dude's friends. This isn't MY storyline. I am an additional piece to this, and I'm okay with that.. That being said, I was unavaible for the November shows..I felt bad, but it worked out, as the heels were killing off the babyface's friends. Perfect. it worked out ! The plan was me to be killed off in October, and whenver the blowoff happens in december, all the babyfaces that were killed off are going to appear as somewhat of "ghosts of the past" while the heels try to leave, surrounding them.. I LOVE it. Can't wait for it..but anyway.. Oct time, I came up with the idea of doing a 450 off the top through a table on the outside, then the heels capatalizing like sharks smelling blood in the water. So, match ends, and it's time to do the spot, the table is set up, dude is laying down on it, I go to jump and the next thing I know, I'm laying down surrounded by a ton of people.. I remember asking "am I going to die?" they said no...I remember saying "I'm gonna throw up" and I threw up a ton of blood right on the floor.. I was then put on a board, and then a stretcher and taken to an ambulance. I was in the ambulance for about 5 minutes..then next thing I knew i was being loaded into a helecopter and flown to a hospital. It seemed like a minute, I was then out of the air and being taken into the hospital.. They said they needed to cut my gear off which I refused and said I'd refuse medical treatement if they did) so I simply took my trunks off and laid they bare naked until they got me a gown. (gear is expensive, guys!) They took me into a CT scan..and once I was out, I threw up again. Then they took me to my room where my family was. I was there for a little bit, my family asking me if I knew what was going on..they asked me where I was, what day it was, etc. I was correctly answering every question, which is good! Next thing I know, doctor comes in and tells me I have broken my skull and had a small bleed in my brain. I didn't believe it..Cause I still don't know what really happened! They moved me to a new room where I'd be for the remainder of my time. It turns out, when I did the 450, i didn't hit the table as flush as I'd hope, it was too close and I came CRASHING down and hit my head hard on the cement. I broke my temporal lobe area, and broke all the bones in my ear canal..because of this, I lost the hearing in my ear and whill never hear again..which sucks, but it's a small price to pay! While in the hospital, my ear was constantly leaking fluid..we did some tests and found out it was spinal fluid, so I needed to get a cathedir inserted into my spine..THAT sucked..but that helped. All through out the time in the hospital, they'd be asking me questions and such...and I'm happy to report that i have NO SIGN of an apparent concussion...I don't know how..but I don't..SO I did NOT need to transfer hospitals to go to in-patient physical therapy! I was released from the hospital on Friday the 12th and went straight home!! Doc said he wanted me to get into the ring asap just to stand in it, to make sure I didn't have any PTSD..so I was home for an hour and went to the ring and got in..no issues!!
    All in all, I feel great, the only issues are stemmed from the ear issues.. Lack of hearing sucks..and my equilibrium is thrown off..but I can walk on my own (Which surprised my doctors and nurses)
    I will over come this. <3
    I apologize if this read didn't flow or anything..theres a lot to cram into one post haha!
    I've been updating everyone on my twitter, so please feel free to join me on my journey on there <3 @xshawnxphoenix

    Man, you're lucky. Could've been a whole lot worse. What are you going to do now? Continue? If so, don't rush back.

    VERY lucky it's not worse! I'm 100% going to come back. I FEEL great, the only issue is occasional headaches and my balance is a bit wonky..I've got physical therapy next week..so hopefully we'll find out a time table!

    I'm HOPING to be in the ring by Nov...I'm feeling good and I feel like if I think positive and work hard, it may be possible..BUT if the doctor says otherwise..I'll follow their lead..and at least I'll be able to say "yeah, that was an unrealistic goal anyway"

    that being said..I DO have footage..I'm NOT allowed to post it anywhere..but if anyone wants to see it out of morbid curiosity..shoot me a message on facebook and I'll send on there!

    If you are a fan that is frustrated with WWE being too much about comedy and not enough serious wrestling then we got some potentially good news for you.

    As reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, FOX is going to position Smackdown Live as part of a weekend sports block with the NFL airing on Thursday, WWE on Friday, and the NFL on Sunday. I don’t know what they will air on Saturday but I would presume Saturday will include college football games.

    Dave Meltzer is reporting that FOX wants Smackdown Live to be less about comedy and they want the show more in a sports direction.

    Of course, Vince McMahon loves to include comedic elements into his shows but they will have to adjust to what FOX wants because they are looking at having their sports people on different shows to heavily promote Smackdown Live and the network wants to give them something athletically-oriented to promote.

    Smackdown Live will premiere next October on FOX from 8-10 pm and there has been talk of adding a recap/studio show airing on Saturday on sister network Fox Sports 1.
