David Arquette issues statement following LA Confidential
David Arquette has issued a statement following a death match that left him injured during last week’s Joey Janela’s LA Confidential.
Arquette wrote a post on Twitter talking about what happened. He said that he got injured during the match because of his lack of experience.
“I knew it was violent and potentially bloody, but I truly did not know the extent of what I was participating in,” he wrote. “However, I take the responsibility for putting myself in that situation.”
He went on to say that he has been wrestling for the last six months as it is a passion of his.
“I also want to apologize to the professional wrestling world for any negative attention this might have brought forth over the weekend, and I have zero plans to be involved in a match like this again,” he continued. “I am looking forward to getting back to the ring, under much different circumstances – in the near future.”
Arquette was a replacement for Joey Ryan, who was scheduled to face Nick Gage for the GCW title. By the end of the match, Arquette was bloodied up, bleeding from his neck. The match ended awkwardly with Gage retaining the title as Arquette left the ring immediately after, holding his neck which later required stitches.
Another injury took place on the show as Marko Stunt broke his leg after banging it against a door that was propped up while taking a Canadian destroyer. He underwent successful surgery for the injury Sunday morning.
