Anyone following wrestling news on social media may well have seen a sickening video of wrestler El Cuervo De Puerto Rico being hit by a flying brick during a wrestling match.
See the video below for reference:
On the +Lucha stream of the LLB/Lucha Memes show, Angel o Demonio threw a brick at the back of Cuervo (of Puerto Rico)’s head when he clearly had no idea it was coming. Cuervo was knocked out, regained consciousness quickly after. pic.twitter.com/uCrP2EntjC

The impact knocked him out cold, and the latest we knew, he was undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain.
Thankfully, there has no been an update and it looks like Cuervo is going to make a full recovery following successful surgery to remove the clot.
As for the clot who threw the brick however, he might want to watch his step, as former Olympian and current WWE star Kurt Angle has posted the following threat on Twitter:
Give me 10 seconds with that stupid MFer that threw the brick. Shouldn’t be anywhere near the business.

Bully Ray responded to say he reckons Kurt could do it in 5 seconds, but enough of that. Some more good news!
Wrestlers and wrestling promotions are hosting an event tomorrow to raise funds to pay for Cuervo’s medical bills, so if you’re in the Naucalpan de Juárez (Mexico) area, go and check it out.
Get well soon, Cuervo.
