X-Pac tore a new one — on himself
By SPIRO PAPUCKOSKI - SLAM! Sports


File this one under hazards of the job.

Sean Waltman, better known as X-Pac in the ring, had to be hospitalized after injuring his anus during a wrestling event honouring retired wrestler Jerry Lynn Saturday night in Minneapolis.

Yes, he literally tore himself a new one.

Waltman’s girlfriend Alicia Webb — former WWE Diva “Ryan Shamrock” — revealed that the former WWE star injured himself while performing the “Bronco Buster,” whereby the attacker jumps and straddles their opponent who is seated in the corner.

Unfortunately, the wrestler moved away and X-Pac landed crotch-first into the turnbuckle. He was able to finish the match but had to go to hospital when the blood wouldn’t stop leaking.


Webb posted two photos and had this to say online:

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!

Surgery was a success and Waltman was released from hospital on Monday.
