The star in question is none other than Ridge Holland, who found himself at the receiving end of a barrage of negative comments from so-called “fans.”

The Incident That Sparked the Controversy

The incident that led to the online abuse occurred during a SmackDown episode aired on July 14th. During a match between Pretty Deadly and the Brawling Brutes, Elton Prince of Pretty Deadly suffered a separated shoulder.

The injury resulted from an awkward landing after a pounce from Holland. Following the incident, Holland took to Twitter to clarify the situation and wish Prince a speedy recovery. However, the response from some fans was far from supportive.

Holland’s Response and Temporary Exit from Twitter

In his initial tweet, Holland explained, “To set people straight before they get all pissy! It wasn’t the belly to belly…it was a wonky landing from the pounce. Out of my control. Wishing @EltonPrince_PD a speedy recovery.”

Despite his clarification and well wishes, Holland was met with a wave of abuse, including death threats. This wasn’t the first time Holland had experienced such a reaction.

He had previously received similar threats following an injury to Big E during a SmackDown episode in March 2022. The severity of the abuse led Holland to deactivate his Twitter account the following day.
