WWE Referee Breaks Leg During Fight But still Finishes Match

WWE Referee Breaks Leg During Fight But still Finishes Match

If you're eating, I would strongly advise you to stop reading right now and go back to whatever it is that you were doing before.

NXT referee Tom Castor was officiating a bout between Tyler Breeze and NXT North American champ The Velveteen Dream when he snapped his leg.

But despite his foot facing in the complete opposite direction, the brave official still manages to finish the match.

Shocking footage is doing the rounds online, showing Castor rolling on the canvas, holding his mangled leg as the match continues around him.

Incredibly, he then manages to summon the strength to turn over and carry out the one-two-three count as Dream pins Breeze. Hard as nails.

Friend and fellow ref Drake Wuertz revealed the first thing Castor said after his leg break was 'I love the business'.

Castor has now spoken out for the first time since the horrific accident and thanked fans for their kind words and support.

Sharing a post to his Instagram account, the busted up official said: "I sincerely want to thank the WWE Universe and all the NXT/WWE Superstars for their kind words and positive vibes.

"It's been heartwarming and humbling to say the least.

"My utmost gratitude to the WWE Medical Staff and ER staff at Nebraska Medicine for your care and support.

"I'm ready to heal up and rejoin my NXT family doing what we all love to do."

Commenting on Castor's Twitter account, fans have called him a 'badass', with some saying he deserves a call-up to the full WWE.

One person wrote: "You are now and forever a legend to everyone who has worn the stripes in that ring. Wishing you the speediest of recoveries."

A second added: "Best 3 count I've seen personally. And to think the count itself was smooth. I smell a promotion when you are all healed up. Hope you get well soon."

A third fan put: "You, sir, are an absolute badass. Get well soon."

While another impressed follower said: "Get well soon mate! Can't wait to see you back! Major respect man!"
