Abdullah The Butcher Reveals Why He Refused Barbed Wire Matches In Japan


While Abdullah The Butcher is well known for competing in hardcore matches over the course of his career, the wrestling legend says he turned down barbed wire matches in Japan.

Speaking on a recent episode of the “Stories With Brisco & Bradshaw” podcast, The Butcher commented on why he refused to work those sort of matches with Japanese talent.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On turning down barbed wire matches in Japan: “I say, ‘No, I will not have a barbed wire match. You understand?’ In a way, I wasn’t scared of the thing but a lot of people did not know how to work a barbed wire match. They would throw you into the damn wire, scar you up.”

On the one person he was willing to do barbed wire with: “Me and Dusty Rhodes, we had barbed wire matches because he knew how to work ’em. But you can’t work with some guy who don’t know how to work it. And a lot of the Japanese guys did not know how to work a barbed wire match.”
