The Bushwhackers (Butch Miller and Luke Williams) entertained fans with their character work during what is now known as the golden era of professional wrestling. Their contributions to the industry earned them a WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2015. That being said, we have some unfortunate news to report on Bushwhacker Butch.

According to PWInsider, Bushwhacker Butch has been hospitalized after he arrived in Los Angeles for a signing during the WrestleMania weekend. Butch arrived in the city alongside Luke Williams. The duo are advertised to appear at the WrestleCon event as part of the WrestleMania festivities.

WWE Hall of Famer Butch Miller of The Bushwhackers is currently hospitalized in Los Angeles.

Miller had flown from New Zealand to The United States to reunite with his cousin Luke Williams to make a series of signings, including Wrestlecon this weekend.


Sometime after arriving in The States, Miller was stricken ill and taken to a local hospital. 

While has not confirmed the issue, we can confirm that as of this evening, he remains hospitalized. 

Join us at Ringside News as we send our best wishes to the WWE Hall of Famer. Here’s hoping that Butch will kick out of the illness.
