A GoFundMe has been set up for referee Lando Deltoro. Lando was repeatedly stabbed with a spike during the match by Deon Nicholson, character name “Hannibal Bloodhunter”. To be clear, those aren’t fake staples and this is not a wrestling angle. Although it did start as one until “Hannibal” seemingly lost his mind or something.
Lando had a surgery to repair a torn artery, he’s “recovering and currently doing okay”, according to his friend who set up the account.
This show had a Christmas special for kids 13 and under. So for this to happen at a family friendly event makes it even more disgusting. I wouldn’t be surprised if some kids were traumatized after seeing that.
The heinous assault took place at a World Class Revolution event on December 11, 2021 in Irving, Texas. You can see some video below from The Slop Drop.
Hopefully Lando has a speedy recovery and “Hannibal” is never allowed inside a wrestling show again.
