Wrestler Horrifically STABS Referee Multiple Times In Head With Iron Spike During Gruesome Incident, He's Now Been BANNED

Wrestler Hannibal “went a bit off script” and left a referee needing his skull stapled after shockingly attacking him with an iron spike.

During a World Class Pro Wrestling event in Irving, Texas, on Saturday, Hannibal took on former WWE star Carlito.

But the YouTube wrestler, real name Devon Nicholson, saw his win over Carlito overshadowed by his brutal attack on the match official.

Footage made the rounds on social media of Hannibal striking helpless referee Lando Deltoro with what appeared to be an iron spike in the ring.

A bloodied Deltoro was eventually pulled out of the ring and was taken to hospital to receive medical treatment for his head injuries.

The World Class referee later took to social media to share photos of his horrific scars at the hands of Hannibal, who claims he “didn't mean to hurt him.”

Deltoro tweeted: “Recovering at home, still a big fuzzy and pain, yes lots of pain. But I’ll live.

“Thanks [sic] you all for out pouring of love and support. I am a firm believer that if you put good out into the world, good will return to you.”

He added in a separate tweet: “I had heard that I could have said ‘stop’ at anytime [sic].

 “I just wanted to say that’s it’s very hard to talk when there is a 300lbs man’s knee on your back and then being put in a choke hold while being stabbed repeatedly in the head with an iron spike, passed out shortly after.”

Hannibal, who has over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube, broke his silence by claiming that the referee was “hired to bleed” and he would have stopped the attack if Deltoro had told him he was being hurt.

“What happened,” Nicholson said in a YouTube video, “this referee was supposed to bleed from razor blade cuts. I assume he actually cut himself with the razor blades.

“He gave no indication to me -- and you people can watch the footage -- zero indication to me in the ring that he wasn't just selling and was legitimately hurt.”

Hannibal added: “If he had told me he was getting hurt, I would have stopped.”

World Class CEO Jerry Bostic confirmed in a statement that Nicholson would be banned from the wrestling promotion’s future events.

Speaking in a Facebook video message, he said: “World Class moving forward will not be associated with Devon Nicholson.

“I cannot and will not condone what happened last night.”

GoFundMe page has since been set up to help Deltoro with his medical expenses, with the crowdfunding campaign raising $4,578 at the time of writing.

“Hello everyone! My good friend and referee Lando Deltoro was involved in a spot last night at a wrestling show where it involved him getting stabbed multiple times in the head with a spike as Hannibal BloodHunter went crazy and just would not stop,” Kelsie Gibson, who set up the GoFundMe page, wrote in the description.

“In the video which I will not link in here for privacy purposes, Lando was bleeding out in the ring as it was happening.

“He had surgery to repair the torn artery which will be very speedy. Lando is recovering and is currently doing okay.”
