MLW announced that Kotto Brazil is no longer with the company. Checkout their statement below.
Brazil, who was backstage awaiting to walk out for the Super Series closing ceremonies, was critically injured by CONTRA Unit last weekend.
CONTRA Unit attacked several wrestlers, staffers and crew both in Mexico and New York in the shocking closing moments of MLW FUSION (watch).
Brazil is reportedly “devastated” by the news, which came from Dr. Sweglar who ruled the severity of the injuries believed to be from an improvised explosive device, some called a fireball, shut the door on a return to the ring.
World Middleweight Champion Myron Reed, the founder of Injustice, is expected to speak about the CONTRA attack and Injustice’s future this weekend in an exclusive on MLW Anthology.
Among others injured by CONTRA this past week include: Davey Boy Smith Jr., Pagano, Hijo de LA Park, Psycho Clown, Brian Pillman Jr., AAA co-founder Konnan and MLW CEO Court Bauer. Several staffers and 6 security guards were also hospitalized.
Over the past few days league physician Dr. Sweglar has been inundated with several athletes injured with concussions, fire generated burns, compound fractures, severe back injuries and contusions suffered during the CONTRA “1-day war” on MLW.
Sweglar is expected to update the league on the status of several athletes and personnel in the coming week.
