A recent indie wrestling match at RWA is being called out after the match turned into a shoot, with one of the wrestlers attacking the other.
The match saw Brad Anderson decide to assault his fellow wrestler, Jacob Ryan, turning the planned match into a shoot fight as Anderson manhandled Ryan, dangerously attacking him.
The entire thing was filmed by an audience member and the video has quickly gone viral, catching the attention of several major names in the wrestling world. WWE Hall Of Famer, X-Pac saw the video and called Anderson out for being a tough guy, whilst Austin Aries also called him out.
Hey @thefrankmir, if fuckwit here is man enough, I think I just found your next pro wrestling opponent.
If you accept Brad, we’ll personally pay your rate out of our own pockets, as Frank and I will just sacrifice a few days of post workout shakes for your last $40 payday. https://t.co/nK8PbBJ6zr

You can see the footage of the incident below, with the fans condemning the action as it took place:
Here is professional wrestler Jacob Ryan being assaulted in the ring by former “”Zan Panzer” Brad Anderson yesterday at RWA.
Ryan had no idea it was coming, and Anderson is MUCH bigger and was in there to hurt him.
This is not wrestling. This was assault on an unprepared victim. pic.twitter.com/pROnPzdSpm
