Independent wrestler wins lawsuit over Abdullah the Butcher


CBC News in Canada reports that a judge ruled earlier today that WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah the Butcher must pay indie wrestler Devon Nicholson $2.3 million in damages. Nicholson sued Abdullah and claimed that he contracted Hepatitis C from the wrestling legend after a bloody match in 2007. Abdullah allegedly bladed Nicholson without his consent. Abdullah has publicly denied he has the disease and has 30 days to appeal.
