Watch as light fixture falls on top of high school wrestler

January 23, 2013|By Houston Mitchell

Now that is one great submission maneuver.

A high school wrestler in Madison, S.D., was competing in a match on Friday night when a light fixture fell from the ceiling and hit him. You can watch it all in the video above.

The really amazing thing: His injuries required only a few stitches in his head.

All that was missing was The Shield or CM Punk to emerge from the shadows as the mastermind behind the dastardly deed.

The wrestler, Michael McComish of Madison High, later tweeted that he was OK.

"Just letting everyone know I'm fine! Stitches in my head. Gash on forehead and back of me head and little cuts from the glass but nothin serious."

McComish told the Madison Daily Leader that he had 15 to 20 stitches on his forehead and the back of his head. He said that the rope broke and he heard the chains rattle, then he thought, "What the heck happened?"

He estimated that the fixture weighed around 100 pounds.

OK, WWE. Sign him up and put him in the Royal Rumble on Sunday.
