Some wild times as an impressionable youth I have with a ladder. I channeled Jeff I suppose.
The fall on Impact was even pretty crazy. Completely went out from under him. That should have been a sign for tonight.
It's also a ref's responsibility to make sure nobody dies during the match they're presiding over.
