Incorrect Reports of a Wrestler Death, Video of Edge Talking HOF & New Movie

– Below is video of 2012 WWE Hall of Famer Edge speaking with the NBC affiliate in San Antonio, Texas about his new WWE Studios’ movie and the Hall of Fame:

– It was reported last week that former WWE talent Rex King (Timothy Well) had passed away. The information came from Puerto Rico where he had wrestled for years. As it turns out, the information was a mistranslation and King is not dead. King’s ex-wife and his mother got in touch with King, who was unaware of the reports. He contacted the Wrestling Observer editors to inform them that he was alive and well. King is currently living in Greenup, Kentucky. He suffered a neck injury at a WWC 2001 show in Puerto Rico which was made worse by a second story fall through a patio deck a few years back. King needs neck surgery which is where the mistranslation about his death came in.

    I can understand how “He needs neck surgery” and “He died” can get easily confused…Happens all the time….
