Professional Wrestler Sues Opponent After Losing Testicle From Match

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (CBS Cleveland/AP) — A former professional wrestler is suing his opponent and the Indiana-based promoter who arranged their bout last year, claiming his foe was supposed to lose their match but had other ideas and kicked him so hard in the crotch that one of his testicles ruptured and had to be removed.

John Levi Miller, 23, contends in his lawsuit filed Monday that Clinton Woosley was the “heel,” a term used to describe the designated villain or loser, of their match last June, The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reported. He says Woosley, who wrestles under the name Guido Andretti, declined his invitation to map out the fight, as is customary, and instead said he understood the plan and that “it would be OK.” However, Miller says Woosley tried to win and kicked him hard in the crotch.

Miller, who was a contestant on season two of “Love Games,” an Oxygen Channel reality show, could not immediately be reached for comment. Neither he nor Woosley had listed phone numbers. In his bio on the show’s website, Miller is described as an aspiring WWE wrestler who has made a few appearances on the WWE circuit as a villain named “The Playboy J-Millz.”

Miller’s lawyer, Larry Wilder of Jeffersonville, told the paper that Miller applied ice to the swelling after returning home from his match with Woosley, but went to a hospital the next day, where doctors ended up removing his ruptured right testicle.

“Kicking someone between the legs is not a normal dance move in professional wrestling,” Wilder told the paper.

Sam Cosby, who owns Coliseum Championship Wrestling, which promoted the event, told the newspaper that Miller got his facts wrong. He said Miller finished the match and actually won it, as scripted, and he said Miller gave no indication afterward that he had been injured.

“The kid never complained about nothing,” Cosby said.

Miller’s lawsuit, which was filed in Clark Circuit Court in Jeffersonville, accuses Coliseum and Cosby of negligence and breaching their duty to ensure that Woosley was adequately trained and understood the “moves” intended to entertain the crowd and still deliver the match’s predetermined outcome. It seeks a jury trial, legal fees and unspecified compensation for medical expenses related to the surgery and other complications.

    • oldgeez

      Actually he never complained because he couldn’t speak!! I would have thought the bulging eyes would have told someone something was wrong.

    • David Kramer

        …and yes, I meant to put a little ‘c’, because that’s about all it is worth.

  • Emery

    Who in America today is so stupid that they will pay good money to go watch a wrestling event with a predetermined outcome? Apparently a lot of folks enjoy being entertained. Sounds like politics today – they have a predetermined outcome and they are not suppose to kick each other in the nuts.

    • rorschach77

      So emery does this mean you dont go to the movies or watch TV at home? that stuff is pre determined or did you think those people were really LOST on that magical Island? People go to watch wrestling because they are interested in the story. Kind of like when John mcclain stormed that building on christmas eve in 1988…that was a storyline…do you see the similarity therer? mongoloid

      • lee

        Rorsschach, why are you letting the facts get in the way of Emery’s ‘fantasy’
        you should know better. you know they are a mongoloid yet you used 5+ letter
        words and expected him to understand.
        try using blocks and marbles next time to demonstrate your point.

    • fred

      There’s just nothing like two professional wrestling fans calling others dumb. LOL!

      PS: Hope the guy gets better.

    • anonymous_coward

    He will never be kicked in the nuts again. Nut maybe, but never nuts.

  • Jack

    @Emery “Apparently a lot of folks enjoy being entertained.”
