An Even Sadder Story Than Verne Gagne Killing a Guy in a Nursing Home

From the Philly Daily News:

A professional wrestler from Levittown allegedly “staged a fall” at a 7-Eleven in an attempt to collect $50,000 in damages, state Attorney General Tom Corbett said yesterday.
Despite claims of an injured neck and back, investigators say, Michael Taris, 34, continued to clothesline his opponents and leap from the turnbuckle – while moonlighting as a male escort and massage therapist.

Yikes. I’d never heard of this guy; the story says he “formerly wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Alliance, now wrestles for the National Wrestling Superstars,” which presumably meant moving from one high school gymnasium circuit to another.
