Will Ospreay believes Devon “Hannibal” Nicholson should be charged with assault. Hannibal was recently caught on video at an independent wrestling event in Texas, stabbing a defenseless referee with a nail until a pool of blood formed on the canvas. Fans have called for promoters stop booking Nicholson forever after.
Ospreay expressed his opinion on the matter in a a bunch of tweets. He said that the abuse of trust cannot be repaired in professional wrestling. He believes Hannibal’s behavior is unacceptable. What he did, Ospreay wrote, was tantamount to aggression.
“I hate canceling culture more than anyone. But when the lives of others are in jeopardy, there is no question.
The business is about trust & it can sometimes be the Wild West but once trust is abused it can’t be repaired. Unacceptable. ”
“Even talking to a few people and you’re right, it’s not even about canceling the culture, this is really an attack and it’s not on.
This man should be charged for this.”
Yes there’s still a chance that Nicholson would be charged with several counts in connection with the incident. Many of the wrestlers who worked on the show explicitly stated that they believed Hannibal had messed up the script. If so, then this would constitute the definition of assault with a deadly weapon. Nicholson claimed he was execute corners as planned.
