I didn't follow indy wrestling that closely until a few months ago, I always hear about the big shakedown with Maff and Homicide that resulted in Maff quitting wrestling and more or less being in fear of his life? But no one seems to talk about exactly what happened?
I'm just gonna assume he banged dude's wife, but does anyone care to fill me in?
Maff didn't quit wrestling, but he is more or less blackballed from any promotion Homicide regularly works for or did at the time of the incident (this includes ROH, FIP, and JAPW)...and most likely a good number of other promotions as well.
I've heard rumors, but there's no way to confirm them (since neither will speak on the incident), and it's very personal to Homicide. Whatever occurred has resulted in Maff's career more or less being ruined, so as far as I'm concerned it's resolved and I don't see any point in further speculation.

My LiveJournal, where you can read tons of stuff that you don't give a crap about.
Here's Homicide's statement concerning what happened. Based on what he has to say, I wouldn't want to know more. There's kayfabe and there's shoot and sometimes its fun to mix the two, but some situations should remain private.
I wasn't sure what happened. Then I saw the train stopping up ahead. I thought, ‘Holy crap dude, you just got hit by a train.'

I get the impression that "jabroni" is a term that was used in the wrestling business long before The Rock ever showed up, and it's probably still used backstage (off TV, outside of the ring) pretty regularly today.
Oh, sure. I associate the usage of the term more with the Iron Sheik than the Rock, myself. Still, it never struck me as the most deadly-serious of all put downs. I mean someone who didn't give you the proper respect backstage, someone you don't think is in your league, someone you find to be generally a douche, that's a "jabroni". Someone who did something that caused a great deal of pain to your family? I'm thinking that's more of a "son of a bitch". But maybe that's just me.

I got the impression that it was more like he just totally disrespects the guy. The guy is not even worth calling worse names. He's just a jabroni, a small-time loser.
Has there ever been any proof that Dan Maff did what Homicide has accused him of? Because a lot of fans that I've come across seem to think Maff should be violently murdered over what happened, despite proof of the incident having never come forward (as far as I know)...
Has the situation changed, and we know for sure now?

From what I gather, it involves Homicide's sister. Should be able to fill in the rest of the blanks from there, I hope.
I'm glad you recapped it, even though I don't like what I hear re: Nathan Jones. It's hard to get a gauge on what the crowds are really doing on Smackdown because of the audio sweetening, but you say the fans were fairly into him and UT.
