Indy Pro Wrestler Tries Back Flip from Top Rope, Lands on Neck

This is why this move is banned in independent pro wrestler attempted a backwards flip from the top rope and OH MY GOD!

Ref probably should have stopped it.

Deadspin updates:

This blown spot went down Sept. 30 at a Beyond Wrestling show in Rhode Island, but we only just saw the video—and shit, that is horrifying. Atlanta-based wrestler Charade attempted a top-rope moonsault, only to over-rotate and land directly on the top of his head. The instant silence from the announcer and crowd is perhaps the most unsettling thing of all.

Charade never lost consciousness, even kicking out of a pin as his opponent Black Baron tried to bring the match to an end.

Charade suffered a fractured skull, which counts as being remarkably uninjured compared to what could have happened. But those hospital bills aren’t cheap—Beyond Wrestling is holding a fundraiser dinner and show this Sunday in Bridgewater, Mass., so if you’re around, it’s a good cause.
