WHAT CAUSED BATISTA FAN INCIDENT OVER WEEKEND, FANDANGO ON CONCUSSIONS, HORNSWOGGLE IN HOLLYWOOD AND MORE WWE NEWS

In regard to the Batista incident over the weekend in Winnipeg, DJ Cam Carson apologized on Twitter for the situation, implying he had had too much to drink at the event. He promised to discuss it on the air this morning. I was told by a few readers that he has a reputation for going over the line publicly. So, it appears to have been a legitimate issue.

Fandango was interviewed by The BBC about concussions in wrestling, noting that Chris Nowinski’s work has really changed how WWE cares for talents. Fandango noted that when he suffered a concussion last June, WWE took extra care and kept him out even after he passed an Impact test in order to make extra sure he was completely medically OK to return to a physical role.
