Ex-Pro Wrestler Sues Promoter Over Groin Injury

March 1, 2012

A former professional wrestler from southern Indiana is suing an Evansville-based promoter and an opponent over a match in which he allegedly suffered a serious groin injury from a kick delivered by his opponent.

John Levi Miller’s lawsuit filed Monday in Clark Circuit Court in Jeffersonville accuses his opponent, Clinton Woosley, of rupturing his right testicle last June during a match that was supposed to have a prearranged outcome.

Miller’s lawyer, Larry Wilder of Jeffersonville, tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky. that doctors eventually had to remove the damaged testicle.

Miller’s suit accuses Coliseum Championship Wrestling and its owner of breaching its duty to ensure that Woosley was adequately trained and understood the “moves” intended to entertain the crowd and still deliver the match’s predetermined outcome.
