Sean Waltman, who also went by the 1-2-3 Kid and Syxx, as well as X-Pac, was partaking in a tribute wrestling performance for the retiring Jerry Lynn in Minneapolis when he suffered the injury, which reportedly ended in lots and lots of blood.
The Bronco Buster sees X-Pac run from one corner turn-buckle to the other, before then jumping crotch first into his opponent, who is incapacitated in a seated position.
However on this occasion the opposing wrestler moved out of the way to avoid his fake injury and this lead Waltman to drive groin first into the turnbuckle, which caused the mayhem.
Like a pro, Waltman finished his encounter, and he even then went to his hotel room and attended an after-party for around an hour before being taken by an ambulance to the hospital because his anus just wouldn’t stop bleeding.
After being consulted, Waltman had surgery on Sunday morning and was said to have been on his way to recovery later in the afternoon.
On Monday afternoon he reassured his fans by tweeting, “Sorry its taken so long to thank everyone. I’ll be getting out of hospital today. Thank U Jerry Lynn. If it wasn’t for U there would be no me.”
Waltman’s girlfriend, Alicia Webb, also tweeted about her beau’s injury on Sunday, ” We don’t know if there is a medical term for it … but he did a bronco buster last night that literally ripped his ass apart! :-/ Lost a lot of blood! Had surgery this morning and is on the road to recovery! Believe it or not .. this has happened to him once before!”
