WWE Fans Injured -- Call in the Undertaker!

3/31/2008 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Look out below! At least 40 wrestling fans were injured Sunday night when fireworks and cables landed on the crowd at WWE's huge Wrestlemania event in Orlando.


A pyrotechnics display went haywire, sending hot cables flying in to the crowd. One victim told a local TV station, "It felt like a whip. I have a welt on my neck. Like a baseball bat hit me. It was horrible. Horrible."

For their part, the WWE feels bad. In a statement to TMZ, they say "While we apologize to anyone who was injured and/or alarmed by this occurrence, we take solace in the fact that the reported injuries were minor. "

"One victim told a local TV station "It felt like a whip. I have a welt on my neck. Like a baseball bat hit me. It was horrible. Horrible."

So I guess the necks of WWE fans are now even more red? How is that possible?

Its was an accident it happpen's in all types of sports. Not to down play only 3 people were taken to the hospital the other's had minor injuries. The other 35 were treated on scene and released. The fans were more pissed at the emt for taking too long to check them out. Also only 35 injuries with over 70,000 people there aint bad at all

Whats with all the morons these days typing first on forums? I say morons because generally they are not and don't seem to understand posting second, third fourth or fifth is not the same as first. I guess this is not a surprise seeing they don't even recognize when someone has already posted. LOL

It did rain before. Weather can have this effect on equipment. It's just mother nature. I'm sure Vince McMahon knows who was injured & will compensate them very well. What's up with everybody wanting to sue all the time. Crap happens!
