Bill Goldberg

Wrestling Death Was A Freak Accident

... The Sport Is Totally Safe

3/24/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former pro wrestling star Bill Goldberg says the accident that took the life of a Mexican wrestling star this past weekend was a freak occurrence ... telling TMZ Sports pro wrestling is as safe ever.

Goldberg was out in L.A. when we asked him about the tragic death of 35-year-old Mexican wrestling star El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo who passed away after his spine was snapped during a match last weekend.

Aquayo lay motionless on the ropes for nearly two minutes after the injury, with the other wrestlers apparently thinking it was all part of the show.

Goldberg, a former WCW champion, says despite the horrific nature of the injury wrestling is totally safe, noting that it's VERY rare that these types of accidents happen.

"Name the amount of people who've died in the ring over the past 50 years."

We also asked Bill if he thought the WWE should do any sort of tribute to the fallen star at this weekend's Wrestlemania, and Goldberg thought it was definitely the way to go.

"There's no doubt, there needs to be a silent bell or a moment of silence for him ... there's no doubt."

Angelina Jolie  
took a second big step in minimizing a cancer risk which she has been living with for years ... she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. 

Jolie told an emotional, dramatic story in a NY Times op-ed piece, in which she talked about her normal ... an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and a 50% chance of ovarian cancer, because she carries the BRCA1 gene mutation.

The actress took proactive steps with breast cancer 2 years ago by getting a double mastectomy.   She'd been seriously considering the second preventative procedure but she was pushed into action when medical tests revealed the possibility of ovarian cancer but in the early stages. 

Angelina underwent the procedure last week, and doctors found a small benign tumor on one ovary but no signs of cancer in her tissues. 

Jolie says she's now in menopause as a result of the surgery, and she can't have any more children. She stoically writes about the fact that she has to live with the possibility of cancer but adds, "I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family.  l know my children will never have to say, 'Mom died of ovarian cancer.'"

10:15 AM PT -- Suge collapsed after the hearing, an ambulance came and they are taking him to the hospital. Certainly better than a 20 X 8 cell. 

update_grey_gray_bar

Suge Knight just got the worst news possible ... a judge sided with the prosecutor in his murder case and set bail at $25 MILLION ... but not before his lawyer compared Suge's plight to Lucious Lyon on "Empire."

The judge feels Suge is a danger to be out and about given his extensive record and specifically, incidents involving guns, violence and witness intimidation.

Attorney Matt Fletcher threw a Hail Mary, accusing the prosecutor of watching too much "Empire." Fletcher, said, "It's like she watches "Empire" and comes in and says, 'He was an unrepentant and shameless criminal. Prosecute him.'"

As you know ... Lucious was arrested in the "Empire" finale for murdering Bunkie.  

And then Fletcher starts to hammer away at Cle Bone Sloan, one of the men Suge ran over, repeatedly referencing Bone's statement to cops that he f***** Suge up.

Suge is in bad shape, claiming he's going crazy in jail because he's in solitary with no hot water, no blanket and only sporadic showers.

Nails Fan in Head With Mic

Exclusive Video

0318-adam-levine-launchAdam Levine couldn't have imagined smashing a woman in the head with his microphone would actually make her love him more, but watch for yourself ... it totally did.

During Maroon 5's show in Toronto Monday night ... the sound guys were having trouble and Levine was pissed ... so he chucked the mic in frustration, which took a crazy bounce and nailed a female fan in the face.

0317_levine_fan_injury_WM

Levine immediately ran over to check on Stephanie Green in her front row seat -- she was fine, and about to get better. Watch the vid ... Adam got pretty smooth, and most likely dodged a lawsuit in the process.

Must've learned that move from Jagger. There, we said it.
