Riddick Moss had been working in NXT for the majority of his career until he was called up to the main roster. He eventually aligned himself with Happy Corbin and is now known as Madcap Moss. It seems Drew McIntyre didn’t realize how bad his most recent botch was.
Madcap Moss squared off against Drew McIntyre at WWE Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. During the match, he suffered a horrific bump as Moss landed right on his head.
Many fans expected the worst after the bump but it was said that Moss was fine. While speaking on the In The Kliq Podcast, Drew McIntyre talked about Madcap Moss’ scary bump. McIntyre admitted he didn’t realize how bad the botch was until he saw the replay.
“I didn’t realize how bad it was until I saw the clip back,” Drew McIntyre admitted. “Let’s just say that he zigged when he should’ve zagged and the move didn’t go the way it was supposed to. I was aware of that, but I didn’t realize just how bad it was. He was okay and I did double-check that and I could see in his eyes he was good. He was double-checked to make sure that he could finish the match, then after the fact, the necessary precautions were made and thankfully he was all good.
That’s the thing about this job is all it takes is one second and everything can change. People have their opinions on wrestling except we’re the ones going out there as live-action stuntmen and when we’re putting on those contests at such a high level, we don’t even think twice about it because everyone’s so good at what they do but sometimes in those moves if one thing goes wrong and if somebody tucks when that’s not the plan then awful things can happen and I’m just very happy that he’s OK.”
It was also reported that there was no backstage heat on either Madcap Moss or Drew McIntyre for the botch. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for both WWE Superstars.
