Be warned, for what follows is a disgusting tale that some may find extremely disturbing.

Referee Lando Deltoro was seriously injured over the weekend due to an assault from Devon Nicholson, aka Hannibal 'The Blood Hunter' of Hannibal TV.

At Saturday's World Class Pro Wrestling's Christmas Star Wars event, Hannibal wrestled former WWE Intercontinental Champion Carlito. Post-match, Nicholson attacked Deltoro with a spike, causing the official to suffer a torn artery as he was left unconscious and in a pool of his own blood.

Deltoro was not actually the referee for this contest, but he was meant to be part of a pre-planned post-match attack from Hannibal. Taking to Reddit, a user named Colbafone claims to be the ref for this match, and he detailed how Hannibal had gone into business for himself and was "messed up" prior to the bout.

Colbafone stated how Andrew Anderson - who, along with Hannibal, is managed by Kevin Sullivan - was meant to come out and brawl to the back with Carlito. From there, Hannibal would attack Lando Deltoro with a spike and the referee was meant to do a blade job to sell the attack.

When Deltoro hadn't managed to bleed, Hannibal attacked him for real with the spike and hits him several times after legitimately choking him out. With Deltoro unconscious and bleeding profusely, it took Hannibal's real-life girlfriend Blaze to get him to stop this assault. The police were soon on the scene, with Colbafone alleging Hannibal hid the weapon and Sullivan telling him to "kayfabe" the cops and pretend this was all merely a part of the show. Likewise, when Hannibal approached Colbafone in an aggressive manner, MLW standout Jacob Fatu stood up and protected the official.
