Indy Promotion Apologizes After Wrestler Puts Knife To Another Wrestler's Neck During Show

A tense situation...

Kentucky-based Paradigm Pro Wrestling has issued an apology after an incident Friday night in Jeffersonville, IN, in which a knife was used during a show.

Wrestler Cole Radrick claimed in a series of tweets that he was cutting a promo in the ring when he was accosted with a knife by a wrestler named Hy Zaya. Radrick claims the angle was carried out without his consent.

Tweeted Radrick, "Last Friday, I had a knife pulled on me and held to my neck in the ring mid-promo in a situation I had no prior knowledge or approval of by a wrestler that was intoxicated and under the influence. I was then told we could work together or “s**t would get rough for me.”

Paradigm Pro Wrestling later tweeted out an apology, saying in part, "We did not know Hy Zaya's mental state at the time. And as a matter of timing, he went right out to the ring after coming to the building. Although Hy Zaya had not performed for us in over a year, we had worked with Hy Zaya many times in the past, and never had an issue. Unfortunately, the situation was quickly out of control."

The statement adds that Hy Zaya will not be booked on PPW events going forward.
