The life of a pro wrestler is full of hardships and hurdles and not everyone is cut out for it. That said, many wrestlers love putting their bodies on the line for their fans, week in and week out. Unfortunately, it appears that a wrestler recently attacked a fan during an indie show.

XPW, an independent wrestling company renowned for its hardcore and deathmatch-style matches, often holds events in smaller venues to create an intimate atmosphere. This undauntedly leads to fans having a more intimate experience with wrestlers, for better or worse.

During the “Broken, Beat, and Scarred” show, a match involving XPW wrestler Kit Osbourne took a chaotic turn. At one moment, Osbourne found himself at ringside, his body covered in blood and bruises.

Due to the limited space between the ring and the seating area, Osbourne had a fan right behind him, who took advantage of the close proximity to taunt and mock him incessantly. The fan’s words struck a nerve with Osbourne, triggering a surge of anger that redirected his focus towards this particular individual.


In a moment of heated confrontation, Osbourne swung a light tube backwards, unintentionally striking the top of the fan’s head. Following this accidental blow, Osbourne proceeded to deliver at least one forceful punch to the fan’s jaw and attempted to snatch away the provocative sign that the fan held, which read “Billy Corgan is a p*****.”

The shocking attack continued until the referee and other officials had to pull Osborne back as the referee yelled “don’t do it” to him. This is certainly a shocking incident that took place and we hope it doesn’t happen ever again.

What’s your view on this shocking incident? Should fans be more careful around wrestlers in the independent circuit? Sound off in the comments!
