Here is the report:
The official Facebook page of former ECW superstar Jerome “New Jack” Young notes that at an independent wrestling event last night in Clearwater, Florida, he was involved in an altercation with Brian Knobbs, which resulted in Knobbs being knocked out in front of a locker room full of wrestlers. New Jack noted that Knobbs stopped by with his wife and 2 other people and for some unknown reason, Knobbs felt like he needed to mess around with New Jack on and off for a while and that Knobbs, who was drinking, came in, gave a speech and told New Jack that he couldn’t wrestle, which New Jack stated is the last thing that Knobbs probably remembers before being knocked out.Those who I’ve spoken to about the altercation are wondering why Knobbs even made the comments in the first place knowing quite well that it would not only rile up New Jack, but also a few members of the locker room also. One promoter who contacted me about this and will remain anonymous stated that there are good people in wrestling and bad people in wrestling and then there’s Brian Knobbs and that he’s delighted that Knobbs finally got what he deserved and hopes that the boys in the back on the night praised New Jack as he finally reacted to what Knobbs’ has been getting away with for years.
After a show last night in Largo, FL at Gasoline Alley, Brian Knobs came into the dressing room and was giving a lot of the wrestlers an earful about how they didn’t know how to work and didn’t get it. Knobs then specifically told that to New Jack, saying that New Jack didn’t know how to wrestle. New Jack then punched Knobs in the face, knocking him into the wall. Knobs then came back and pulled New Jack to the ground, but New Jack got up from the ground a lot faster than Knobs, and when Knobs was down, he kicked him in the face, knocking him out in front of everyone. I’m sure more versions will surface from other eye witnesses in the next few days.
What I want to know is, with how long he’s been in the wrestling business, how come there was never a universally established way of spelling his name? Is it Knobbs or Knobs, for fuck’s sake?! Also, if Jack is in Florida, Mike Ryan needs to get him on the Lebatard Show pronto! In studio. Only Roy is safe. – Dusty
