UK wrestler Lionheart suffers injury taking Styles Clash

UK wrestler Lionheart (Adrian McCallum) suffered a broken neck in two places taking a Style Clash from former TNA star AJ Styles at a Preston City Wrestling event in Preston, England this weekend. Styles gave him the Styles Clash after their match and Lionhart reportedly tucked his chin and took the move right on top of his head.

McCallum released a statement on Facebook that reads:


Words cannot describe the physical and emotional roller coaster of the past 30+ hours…

To update, my neck is broken in 2 places. I have had an MRI and the positive spin is there is no immediate requirement for surgery, although that may change…

I don’t want to bore anyone or appear to fish for sympathy as I will comment more in depth in time… All I want to say is that the outpouring of support, calls, messages etc has been truly overwhelming… Reading them all has reduced me to tears more times than I can count… I thank you, and I love you… I know not what the future holds, and as emotional and drained as I am, I will fight back from this…

Much love.
