Daniel Wilson of Slam Wrestling is featuring an interview with pro wrestler Jonathan “Fuzzy” Sayers who was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2005. Sayers, who believes he contracted the disease due to the use of blood in his pro wrestling matches, is urging promoters to stop using blood as a storyline tool.
“There is an old saying in the business, ‘Red leads to green’. [To promoters,] don’t ask any of your wrestlers to draw blood in any match no matter how important a match it is or how much money it may draw. To the young guys out there, don’t buy into it. If I can save one wrestler from the mistakes I made, this will be a success.”
