On a current episode of his podcast, Bruce Prichard mentioned an incident that occurred on an abroad tour of the UK in 2005.
The story goes that WWE wrestlers received into an altercation with a number of drunk kickboxers. Here’s what he needed to say:
“Everyone was staying in the identical lodge and so they had an MMA present after which we had our stay occasions there, so by the point everyone received again to the lodge, it was the MMA guys going, ‘Oh, it’s a bunch of faux wrestlers,’ it’s the wrestling going, ‘Hey, have a look at the shooters,’ and simply a whole lot of testosterone in that bar and you then add alcohol to that, not a superb scene. And it led to 1 man calling out one man, to a different one backing him up, to any person else backing them up, to finally, and I used to be not there, what I heard from individuals who had been there and a part of it, that they finally received out into the lodge foyer and principally sort of squared up on reverse sides of one another.”
“The MMA guys threw the primary punch and it was on, and it didn’t final that lengthy as a result of as legend has it, the boys subdued them. The lodge safety had already referred to as the police as a result of they noticed what was occurring within the bar. Within the bar there was a whole lot of ‘fuck you’, ‘fuck you’ and ‘let’s go exterior’ and ‘let’s do that’ so there was a sense from the lodge safety that one thing was going to occur. So the police had been on their means, it wasn’t like, that they had the battle and we’re gonna maintain them down and telephone the police and also you look ahead to the police to get there, they had been already on their means. So by the point the battle occurred, the police had been just about there. And on all accounts, have in mind the one accounts I heard had been from our boys, was that the WWE guys just about dominated and took them down and did what they wanted to do and the police all received there and separated everyone. I don’t even suppose any arrests had been made.”
