FOUR wrestling stars are recovering in hospital after a near-fatal crash nearly ‘ripped their car in half’ at the weekend.
Nick Pufpaff, Kevin Bennett, Kevin Blackwood, and Daniel Garcia, also known as the Buffalo Brothers, were driving home from an event in Canada on Saturday when the “major accident” occurred.
A Go Fund Me page has now been created to help with the foursome’s rehab after they sustained several injuries including a number of broken bones.
The wrestlers were travelling back after working for the FLQ promotion in Montreal when the vehicle they were travelling in hit black ice and smashed into a roadside guardrail.
Both Garcia and Blackwood have undergone surgery for broken bones while Bennett and Pufpaff have also been treated for minor injuries.
Canadian wrestling promotion Smash Wrestling broke the news on Twitter last night as they asked fans to keep the stars in their thoughts.
Friend of the wrestlers and fellow grappler Pepper Parks then explained further details of his colleagues’ accident as he shared images of them laid up in hospital.
He wrote: “Buffalo Brothers @DanielMTGarcia @blaxkwood666 @blaxkwood666 @pufisgod were in a major car accident last night.
“They hit black ice on the way home from a show and a guardrail just about ripped the car in half.
“Please send them some love and positive thoughts their way.”
