A weekend that had started in a celebratory mood ended in shock and worry as a serious in-ring injury prompted Michigan Wrestling Organization officials to make the difficult decision to suspend the remainder of WrestleRama 25, thus postponing the scheduled four-corner elimination main event for the MWO Championship title.
In the match just prior to the main event, former tag team partners Victor Cross and Jack Teryn collided in an anticipated match between two powerhouses. After being on the receiving end of a hard-fought attack by Cross, Teryn regained the upper hand and looked to put away his former partner. With Victor lying prone on the mat, the 330-pound Teryn scaled the turnbuckles to execute a jaw-dropping moonsault. As Cross scrambled out of the way, Teryn fractured his femur bone upon impact of the landing. Not knowing the extent of the injury, Cross applied a modified sleeper hold that Teryn instantly tapped to. As other referees, officials, and superstars surrounded the ring to attend to Teryn, CEO Jason “the Basher” Clouse made the call to suspend the rest of the show.
Paramedics arrived to the venue and transported Teryn to a nearby hospital. Initial reports came in late Sunday night that surgery would be required to repair the injured leg.
The announcement was made amid the situation with Teryn that the MWO Championship match that was scheduled to take place at WrestleRama 25 will now be the main event of the MWO Redemption event on Sunday, May 19 at the Richfield Road Church in Flint. However, instead of a four-corner match, Old School Ric Caurdiea will now defend his title in a triple threat match against the Superstar Alex Crow and the Takeover’s Jeremiah J. Hughes.
The entire Michigan Wrestling Organization is sending all the prayers and best wishes to Jack as he recovers from his injury. Updates on Teryn’s condition will be made as they become available. Keep checking back to MWO social media and official online sources for any new information.
