WWE News: Devon Nicholson Ejected From Live WWE Event

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IMarch 6, 2012

Devon Nicholson has been entrenched in wrestling news as of late with the ongoing lawsuit he is involved in with Abdullah the Butcher, in which Nicholson claims he contracted Hepatitis C from the WWE Hall of Famer.

Nicholson continued to create some controversy this past weekend when a video was released on YouTube of Nicholson outside a live WWE house show in Ottawa, Ontario.

In the video, Nicholson spoke with WWE fans about the creation of a new wrestling promotion that he and former WWE superstar Lanny Poffo are spearheading, called “Hannibal Pro Wrestling.”

During the two hours he spent outside Scotiabank Place, Nicholson also spoke with fans about his return from retirement and possibly working for TNA.

In the video, fans seemed entertained by Nicholson, but he was eventually kicked off Scotiabank Place premises.

Nicholson was offered a WWE contract in 2009, but it was soon rescinded when a medical exam revealed he had Hepatitis C. Nicholson claimed he had contracted the disease in a match against Abdullah the Butcher.

Nicholson claimed Abdullah used a razor blade that he used on himself and then used it on Nicholson, and that in turn infected him with the disease.

Nicholson filed a $6 million lawsuit against the WWE for rescinding the contract, and he is suing Larry “Abdullah the Butcher” Shreve for $6.5 million, claiming Shreve did not inform Nicholson he had Hepatitis C, and that being the main reason the WWE and TNA had not recruited him.
