Sid Vicious Forced To Officially Retire Due To Injury
Posted By Widro on 03.22.03

Still one of the all time grossest injuries

Quietly, Sid Vicious has announced that he is retiring from in-ring work.

Sid broke his leg in horrific fashion live on Nitro in the dying days of WCW, and will never regain full mobility of the leg. The injury will prevent him from working again in the ring.

Now Brock/Sid will be a dream match forever unfulfilled.

Sometimes life is really unfair.

Sid didn't break his leg on Nitro, they merely showed the replays on Nitro from the previous night's pay per view, SIN. In essence he's been retired since this happened way back in 2001, so it isn't that big of news.
Still, sucks to be a Sid fan right now.

I would have loved to see one last match from Sid, but I guess it won't happen. If put in front of the right people, Sid could put on a good match.

My personal favorite Sid match was his match with HBK back in MSG at the 1996 Survivor Series. Sid's best match ever, easily, and the crowd LOVED him!

Forget Brock! TRINITY is the Next Big Thing! Congrats to both Kid Kash and TRINITY~! on signing long-term deals with TNA!

Random Sid fact:

"Psycho" Sid Vicious: The first man ever to appear on Raw is War.(March 10, 1997)

Just had to get something nice in before all the softball and scissors jokes start flying.

I wish they made chocolate Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.

I was there, and I remember it well. ECW was in the house too. Good stuff.

Tell me I didn't just say that.

Watching him as a kid, Sid was the scariest man I ever saw. He's still intimidating, watching him on tape.

I wish him well.

I marked for Sid whenever he was a surprize in something, but shortly afterwards, I got bored with his interview style. I mean, the first time I heard him do his "Master...and ruler...of the universe" think, it was cool, but there's only so many times

(a) you can mumble out of the corners of your mouth,
(b) then shake your head, causing litres and litres of sweat or water fly everywhere,
(c) and start screaming like a madman

before it gets boring.

I'll always remember Sid for three things:

1) His AWESOME match with Shawn Michaels at MSG at Survivor Series '96.

2) Damn near decapitating poor Brian Pillman in Wargames 1991 by powebombing him right on the back of his head.

3) Single handily saving Great American Bash '99 from being the worst PPV ever by his "Holy Shit" surprise run-in at the end. I've never been a huge Sid fan, but I remember marking out during that run-in, as NOBODY saw it coming.

Met Sid, way back when he was LORD HUMONGOUS wrestling for USWA. Met him in the bathroom at a high school gym in Kossuth Mississippi, where he was there, in full gear, including mask, and he was coming out of the crapper. He looked at me and said "sorry about the stink" and walked out. I laughed my ass off and then went out to watch Jerry Lawler beat him in about 10 minutes.

Old tapes are great to watch (especially if they have a lot of bad stuff on them) because it keeps your perspective on where today's product is.
