WTF is this? Is this real, and is this a part of American culture?

    Wrestling is only entertaining if it involves a fat bloke called Shirley being cheered on by yer nan .

    That's New Jack. New Jack should be in jail. It's a wonder how, even in this day and age, nobody has Brody'd him.

    Her Majesty's favorite as well!

    Hardcore wrestling is a thing, but New Jack goes above and beyond the norm, and should be in jail for no less than three counts of attempted murder.

    I had Sabu and Too Cold Scorpio land on me at an event.

    Awesome.

    I like wrestling, but the hardcore shit is just terrible in my opinion.

    Jumping off a platform and (sort of) hoping not to die isn't wrestling.

    You can't classify what a goon like New Jack does as the same activity as what Ricochet does.

    Sort of on the subject, there is a place for strong style-- it can be done well-- but often times that sucks, too.

    I am not one for wishing harmful things on people, but new jack is an exception. Massive POS, and he got part of what he deserves.

    I'm a little out of the New Jack loop. Did something happen to him?

    The gif in here where he fell into the table with the other guy,well it cracked his skull and left him with permanent brain damage, and other ailments.

    He got off light imo

    Oh' yeah, I knew about that. I was hoping he got the piss beat out of him recently, or was imprisoned for something.

    Dude is a lunatic. Promoters should be held accountable for booking his dumb ass. He's still intentionally maiming people on the indy circuit last I checked.

    New Jack is a piece of shit. The dude would try to intentionally hurt people.

    I don't think the stabbing thing was real. That would be murder, even if it's fake wrestling.

    The blood is real and most hardcore wrestlers make fuck all money. They're basically dumb-asses caught up in a genuinely toxic culture of trying to prove how badass they are by agreeing to do stupid and dangerous stunts.

    If their goal is to make money they'd work on their aesthetics and character and try and make it into the WWE instead of wrestling in CZW which gets crowds of like 100 people on a good day. It's rare to see anyone from this genre of wrestling transition into the mainstream because that would be considered "selling out".

    The guy that played the character New Jack is pretty unstable in real life, with a reputation for attacking opponents in ways they've not agreed to. If the activity wasn't surrounded by such a macho culture I'm sure most sensible people would have refused to work with him.

    The stabbing incident is infamous among wrestling fans, and resulted in lawsuits.

    It was real. New Jack got arrested for it. Guy dropped the charges.

    I watch it sometimes with my son, and it is really tame compared to when I was really into it(attitude era).
