Bobby Lashley Suffers Scary Fall After Top Rope Snaps At WWE Live Event In Newcastle

WWE superstar Bobby Lashley suffered a scary fall at a house show in Newcastle on Thursday night after the top ring rope completely snapped during his match against Drew McIntyre. You can see footage of the incident below.

The eight-time world champion was facing off against 'The Scottish Warrior' at the first show of WWE’s 2022 European Spring Tour when the unfortunate botch happened inside the Utilita Arena, Newcastle.

As you can see in the footage above, McIntyre reverses a slam from Lashley, who is pushed onto the rope by his opponent.

Lashley then fails to connect with a clotheline and it appears McIntyre was preparing to set up for his finisher 'The Claymore Kick' when the unexpected occured.

The top rope snaps after McIntyre backs into it, and two-time ECW champion Lashley goes flying head first into the canvas.

Thankfully, Lashley appeared to be okay after the heavy fall and continued the match.

In fact, the 273-pound athlete took to Twitter after his match to post the clip. "…and some of y’all think I’m not the toughest guy in WWE," he wrote.

Fans quickly expressed their concern for Lashley both during and after the event on Thursday.

One wrote: "Wow. That looked scary. Glad Lashley was OK," while another said: "Bobby Lashley took a big fall here at the Newcastle house show. Sounds like he is ok."

A third commented: "It happened to McIntyre in 2018. Glad Bobby's ok."

Last year, Drew McIntyre revealed in an interview with SPORTbible that he called time on his football career because his anger was getting the better of him.

The 36-year-old, from Ayr in Scotland, grew up as a massive Rangers fan and idolised legendary striker Ally McCoist.

"I played until I was 16, the WWE was always my goal but the more unlikely goal was to play for Rangers," McIntyre told SPORTbible.

"My last ever game I got a yellow card for a two-footed challenge that I should have been sent off for but I remember I got sent off because this idiot kicked the ball around me and tried to go this way and knocked himself out on my shoulder.

"I got a little bit upset. I tried to fight the ref, I took my shirt off and threw it at him, I called him a bunch of names and got dragged off the pitch by multiple people.

"Then I decided maybe I'll focus on the wrestling now."
