WWE is full of controversy, and you never know when something will pop off next. Now, it appears that Ridge Holland has decided to take a break from Twitter, because he deactivated the platform.
Following an incident on the latest episode of SmackDown, WWE star Ridge Holland has made the decision to delete his Twitter account due to receiving abusive messages on the platform. Fans can be pretty unruly, and it appears that a few of them targeted Holland.
During a tag match between Pretty Deadly and Holland and Sheamus on July 14th, Elton Prince sustained a shoulder injury after an awkward landing from a pounce/tackle delivered by Holland. That was zeroed in on by vengeful fans.
In response to the news of Prince’s injury, Ridge Holland initially clarified on Twitter that it was not the belly to belly move that caused it, but rather a misfortune landing from the pounce. He expressed his well-wishes for Elton Prince’s speedy recovery.
Ridge Holland’s Twitter account has since been deleted, likely due to the ongoing abuse and harassment he has faced, including death threats, in previous instances such as Big E’s broken neck incident in March 2022. Unfortunately, the same pattern of abuse has resurfaced following the injury to Prince.
It is important to emphasize that our thoughts are with Elton Prince as he recovers, and we urge everyone to show respect and refrain from engaging in abusive or harassing behavior towards wrestlers or anyone else.
We will have to see what he does next. If anything, Ridge Holland will continue as 1/3 of the Brawling Brutes. WWE fans will also probably keep a very close eye on everything he does in the ring.
Ridge Holland was involved with two injuries over the course of a year, but does that mean he’s dangerous? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
