"Last night at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, Vic Grimes and New Jack wrestled each other at a XPW show in a very gruesome match in which a botched and or missed spot occurred.
An eyewitness recounts, "They had tables set up on top of each other, stacked four high, for a big crash to break the fall, however Grimes was overshot in the throw, barely grazed the top table, and took a horrible bump to the floor. They immediately cleared the building."
Has anybody heard anything about this , and if it wasn't a work , how is Grimes ?

From the Observer: This is a second report from last night's XPW show regarding Vic Grimes' bump from Steve Bryant: Vic came off the scaffold at an angle, but he didn't just graze the tables. He went through two tables, but because of the angle, he hit the corner of the ring at the turnbuckles and was flipped back into the ring. He didn't go all the way to the floor, and he did land in the ring. I'm not sure the building was being cleared solely because of Grimes, as it was nearly 1 a.m. and the security guards were pretty upset they were still there. Grimes was taken away in an ambulance (we've been told that, in fact, Grimes didn't go out in an ambulance and was walking around backstage). While the bump was crazy, it wasn't as bad as it sounded."
This is where WCW excelled at compared to the WWF/E. You mostly only hear negative comments about WCW, but they handled their cruiserweights very nicely. No, they almost never got the main event spot or anything, but I really liked what they showed.
