FIP Headlines for 7.31.09

Last minute News Updates for tomorrow night

Nigel McGuiness Health Update

Former ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness suffered a stinger last Friday night at Ring of Honor’s event in Toronto Canada. He received a cradle piledriver from Jerry Lynn and was taken to an area hospital for testing immediately after the event. While Nigel did have severe neck pain and concussion like symptoms, there was no serious damage to his spinal cord or his vertebrae. He has been cleared to appear and will be in Crystal River tomorrow night to face TJ Perkins.

Bradley Out?SYDAL IN?

Jay Bradley has pulled out of tomorrow night’s show in Crystal River, leaving Chris Jones opponent-less for tomorrow night? That is until FIP officials received a call from an athlete looking to come to FIP and take on Chris Jones in Bradley’s stead. ?I?ve heard a lot about Chris Jones, and look forward to the challenge he presents inside the ring. So tomorrow night I am going to show Chris and everyone else in FIP that I too am, ?BOURNE TO FLY?

Challenging Chris Jones will be none other than Mike Sydal, younger brother of WWE superstar Evan Bourne.

Shawn Osborne out this weekend as well?

Shawn Osborne sent word to FIP officials that he was fed up with his recent run of bad luck in FIP, and would not be in attendance this weekend. His return is questionable, and calls placed to Osborne for clarification went unreturned.
