I heard a rumor about Jack evans being in the hospital due to a botched reverse 630? Apparently he landed on his head when he debuted as Blitzkrieg II. I have only heard this from a friend who read it on some other forums.

Do anyone know whether this is true or not?

Yup. It was on CZWfans.com, and it's true. He tried a 630, landed square on his head and the whole crowd was told to leave whilst the ambulance came because he just wasn't moving. Not the first time he's been in a near-fall like this. Luckily, he's said to have little more than a concussion and just a few nagging pains, but he started moving again in the ambulance apparently, which is good news.

In my opinion, spot-monkeys are one type of wrestlers, while powerhouses (husses) are another one. I personally prefer spot-monkeys, even though I realize what they are doing is dangerous and shouldn't be done by someone not properly trained. Hell, it probably shouldn't be done by anyone, but it's entertaining to watch.

Source: rohwrestling.com:

 

-- Jack Evans injured himself at a Pro Wrestling War show last night (Friday 14th January). In his debut as Blitzkreig II, Evans attempted his 630 finisher but didn’t hit it as planned.

 

-- Medical teams rushed to his aid and cleared the building, and Evans was taken to hospital where he remained until 4:30am. Thankfully he was then discharged with no serious injuries.

 

-- He has been taken off of tonight’s Ring of Honor event, even after asking to still fulfill his booking. RoH will be working an angle around his scheduled match involving Roderick Strong.

Yeah but there's nothing between the spots. It's just spot, spot, spot. Nothing has much impact, despite the fact what they are doing is absolutely ridiculously dangerous. It's fine to throw a few in, between the grappling and chain wrestling, but spot after spot, is just naff. Flippety floppety.

The fact is the high flying style that began with some junior in Japan... (hmm who was that... oh yeah the great Tiger Mask) had all of the high spots but it had story, build up, the whole eight yards in fact...

 

Then Mr Liger took it to a whole new level with Benoit and Sasuke and then brought it to the US with Pillman.

 

At the same time a few lesser know juniors at the time like Gran Hamada and Ultimo Dragon went and blended Japanese wrestling with Lucha as well and then this through the likes of Juvi and Rey ended up on US soil too...

 

This resulted in the greatest era of 'Cruiser' style wrestling in US wrestling history which ran from 1995-97 in ECW and 1996-1999 in WCW...

 

After that everything else has degenarted as now whilst the moves get bigger the story and transisations and actual things that keep wrestling real and safe disappear...

 

And who is too blame?

 

Jeff Hardy and the OMEGA fed...

 

It told skinny backyarders they could be superstars by just flipping, that botching wasn't a problem so long as you jumped of something high and that then it all went south...

 

Look at Jeff now. He's broken down off just Swanton's and Whisper in the Winds. He didn't do Sprial Taps to the floor or 450 body presses where people moved (and that was planned) nor was his finisher a move so hard to control. It's not the first time Evans has nearly killed himself doing this move and even if he hits all his spots perfectly for the next year he's still going to be broken down and finished by the time he's 30...

 

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy them but people have to tone down their style or else. Liger had to (no more Skytwisters and Shooting Star Presses), Sasuke did, Ulitmo did and their is a reason. 1)Their body started to go and 2) their matches started to suffer and crowds started to not care...

 

Evans can if he works at it become a talented and over all rounder... but right now he's content with a quick pay check and a cheap pop. Shame the next thing that goes pop will be his skull...

 

Its like Stu Hart said when he and Bret sat and watched a tape of Evans and Teddy Hart (amongst others) in Bishoff's short lived Matratts project (they specialised win this stuff) back in 2001....

 

Thats not wrestling, its just a good way to break your neck...

Its more gymnastics than wrestling. Just jumping and spinning lots' date=' should be in a circus not a wrestling ring.[/quote']

 

That was exactly my point. It isn't wrestling, it's more similar to what you see in the Men's Gymnastics event at the Olympics. If there's no psychology behind these spot-spot-spot-spot-BOTCHED SPOT-spot-spot matches then it isn't wrestling. You'd really think all these spot wrestlers getting injured would send a message to the rest of them.

 

I mean when I watch wrestling, I want to see guys who legitimately look like they could beat the **** out of most people, ****s sake I reckon I could bloody take half the skinny nobodys on the Indy circuit these days. Hell, teach me how to do a double-triple-230-overhead splash or whatever and I'll even get in the ring with them.

 

Oh no wait... I think I'll get a real job instead since I'm not big enough. Why don't these ****ers realise the same thing. It's a joke.
