Horrible Video of the Day: Pro Wrestler Nearly Kills Himself During Botched Moonsault

(Don’t try this at home, kids. / Props: Peezy P via Deadspin)

Among pro-wrestling moves, aerial techniques are about as high-risk/high-reward as they come. Brock Lesnar nearly ended his career fucking up a shooting-star press at Wrestlemania XIX, and at a Beyond Wrestling show in Rhode Island on September 30th, Atlanta-based wrestler Charade botched one even worse, under-rotating during a moonsault and landing directly on the top of his head. The horrific impact fractured Charade’s skull, and immediately silenced the meager crowd. But Charade — working off of pure muscle memory — remained conscious and actually kicked out his opponent’s first attempt at a pin before letting the match come to a merciful conclusion.

Beyond Wrestling is hosting a charity dinner/event this Sunday in Bridgewater, MA, to raise money for Charade’s medical expenses.

There is no way this was a simple under-rotation, because he would have had to have done basically a straight back flop to be in the air that long and still only have made it 180 degrees around. Judging from other videos of this guy, there's probably a twist or something that was missed by the shitty camera work. Hope the guy doesn't end up brain-dead.

I'm impressed that no one has said anything about another pro wrestling related post on an MMA site.

I don't think the crowd would have cared if they acted out of character for a few moments and treated him as if he just landed on his f#cking head.

Now, THAT'S a good febreeze commercial.

If you pause it at just the right moment you can see that he ended up kicking himself in the back of the head with his heel... Ri-fucking-diculous

I think it's the same ref from the Zaromskis fight. Hope he recovers from this. This shows why MMA is safer than pro wrestling because no MMA fighter would try a dangerous move like that.

Blessing yourself protects you from bad things happening?...Mythbusted...
