A match during Thursday’s (June 30) GCW Dead On Arrival event was stopped early due to a scary injury.
Slade and Hoodfoot faced off in a deathmatch at the show. Early on, Slade broke a light-tube and the two wrestlers took turns stabbing eachother in the arm with half a broken tube each.
Hoodfoot began to bleed heavily from his wound, and the ref attempted to tape his arm up before ultimately calling for the bell.
GCW founder Brett Lauderdale provided an update on Hoodfoot, noting that he’s okay.
“Hoodfoot had a nasty gash but he is OK. Wanted to go back to the ring to finish but thats not gonna happen tonite haha.
“Hes headed to the hospital for a few stitches and will live to fight to another day!”
Many fans have criticised the segment for being needlessly unsafe, even for a deathmatch.
Admitting that the idea was dumb, Hoodfoot has now tweeted:
“Sometimes you get dumb ideas that work out…. Yea this wasn’t that.
“I appreciate all the love and messages I’m gonna bounce back soon.”
