Shoot Attack Occurs At RevPro UK, Referee Retires


According to Revolution Pro referee Aaren Wilde, a unplanned attack from Sha Samuels and Josh Bodom occured last weekend. Wilde, claims as a result he is unable to referee indefinitely due to medical restrictions.

After the conclusion of the match both Bodom and Samuels complained in-character on Twitter which you can see below:

The former RevPro UK referee took to Twitter in a series of tweets to give his detailed account of the situation. You can read his whole statement below:

Last weekend at RevPro I was attacked after the Royal Quest tag match. This was not part of the show, it was not planned.

I was grabbed and slammed to the mat by Sha and then something happened on the outside. I honesty don’t know what, that part was a blur.

As a result, I have sustained a much-more-serious-than-originally-thought neck and shoulder injury that means I am no longer able to referee.

I hate the term ‘retire’, so I’ll say this; I am indefinitely unable to referee due to medical restrictions.

The intended winners (Aussies) still won, albeit 5 minutes quicker on a show that ran over by over 45 minutes. I am still shocked, upset and in disbelief at why this happened and why it has been condoned by RevPro/Andy Quildan.

500+ matches, 1 botched ending. That one.

I have spent the last 7/8 days in many feelings. Anger, sadness, frustration. I truly adored performing as a referee and now, at least for the foreseeable future, I am medically unable to do so.

I truly hope that I can recover to pursue it again.

There are so many things that can be said about last weekend, but I would prefer to not write an essay of negativity.

For now I am also unable to football referee (my main income) due to the injury. 

Thank you for a wonderful few years in professional wrestling. I am distraught that it had to end this way. Support promotions that value performer and spectator welfare: @RIPTIDEwres, @ThisIs_Progress, @FutureShockWres that I know of.

I’ll be back here when I mentally can be.”

Currently, neither Revolution Pro, Sha Samuels, or Josh Bodom have released any further statements. We will have updates on the situation if they become available.
