VIDEO: Cesaro narrowly escapes major injury after botched suicide dive

Published Add your comment

Every wrestling fan has heard this argument a million times during their life: Wrestling is fake!

Well, to a degree, yes it is. It is scripted. It is somewhat choreographed, for lack of a better word.

But is it physical? Is it dangerous? You bet. Much more so than most of the other sports, in fact.

Last night at the Raw brand's pay-per-view, WWE Clash of Champions, there was another example of how scary the world of professional wrestling can be.

Cesaro and Sheamus competed in the final match of their Best-of-Seven series with the score finely poised at three wins apiece

As the Swiss Superman went for a suicide dive through the middle rope, every fan around the world had their heart in their collective mouths.

The King of Swing landed directly on his neck in such a way that any normal man would have surely broken it or even died.

How Cesaro got up and continued with the match, we'll never know.

It was eerily reminiscent of Brock Lesnar's botched shooting-star press from WrestleMania 19.

Both Lesnar and Cesaro are two of the strongest men in the industry today, or ever. There is no doubt that the muscles built up around the neck area probably saved both of their lives.

Twitter exploded in the wake of the death-defying move with former WWE announcer Jim Ross and WWE backstage personality Renee Young both sharing their disbelief.

Even though the match would end in conspicuous fashion with a no contest, early reports suggest that, luckily, Cesaro is fine and unharmed.
