Madcap Moss took a dangerous bump when he landed on his neck after an inverted Alabama Slam by his opponent. This took place at the Elimination Chamber, in Saudi Arabia, while fighting Drew McIntyre. Moss’ partner, Happy Corbin, watched it unfold from ringside and he feared the worse.
Corbin recently appeared on After The Bell with Corey Graves. He discussed witnessing Madcap Moss’s near-injury. He detailed what went through his mind when he witnessed Moss hit his head in the match against Drew McIntyre in Saudi Arabia.
“I was five feet from it, and when I watched his head literally go straight into the canvas, like first of all, I was in shock. For athletes, the worst thing you can see is someone else gets hurt. It scares us all,” Corbin said.
“We would put our lives on the line, whether it be on a football field, or boxing, or wrestling. It doesn’t matter. Your life is on the line. So that was terrifying because you don’t ever want to see somebody get hurt.”
Corbin elaborated that at one point, he thought Moss might be dead and if not he definitely wanted to end the match after he saw him hit his head.
“But then I have like all these other things going because he’s hit and like I’m like, ‘Okay. Number one, he might be dead. Number two, he’s probably going to have a broken neck or a bad concussion.’ So in my brain I’m going ‘Okay, how do I finish the match in his place?’ I don’t know how to finish it as I’m processing what can I do? Then I see him get closer. I pulled him out of the ring and checked on him because he’s moving. I’m like, ‘Are you good?’ So we have to find time to let him regain where he’s at, I guess, you know, because he’s, in my mind, should be concussed. I don’t know how, but that man has the strongest neck in the world because no concussion, nothing broken, and in my mind, he was going to get stretched out.
“When the camera cuts me and I fall to my knees, it’s 100% legit because I’m going okay, he’s going to get stretchered out. How do I save this?’”
“Afterwards he didn’t even realize it. I’m like, ‘Dude, are you good? Like, this is crazy. He’s like, ‘Was it that bad?’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean? Go watch the replay’. He saw the replay and he’s like, ‘I feel nauseous’, after he saw it.”
Corbin is set to square off with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during the first night of WrestleMania 38. The two-day extravaganza will take place from inside AT&T Stadium on April 2 and 3 (Saturday and Sunday). You can check out the full card right here.
