CBC Sports in Canada is reporting that Canadian independent wrestler Devon Nicholson has won his lawsuit against WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah the Butcher (Larry Shreeve) per a judge’s ruling early Tuesday morning. The judge ruled that Shreeve must pay Nicholson $2.3 million in damages. Nicholson sued Shreeve in 2011 after claiming he contracted Hepatitis C from Shreeve during a match against each other in 2007 where Shreeve bladed Nicholson without his consent. Shreeve has publicly denied since that he has Hepatitis C and now has 30 days to appeal the judge’s ruling. Nicholson is currently in remission from Hepatitis C after undergoing a number of experimental treatments.
