EGO goes AWOL...


Pugh

English pro Wrestler Paul "The Ego" Pugh has gone AWOL from OWL (Osaka Wrestling League).

 

Former OCW performer Paul Pugh has apparently quit his job at the Japanese Promotion OWL (Osaka Wrestling League) following his Junior Heavyweight Championship match in last night's "Super Brawl Wrestling Show" event in Osaka, Japan. Pugh defeated Miro Yamashita for the gold via a Pinfall at 18:52, after hitting his "Fishermans Pughplex" finishing maneuver, but immediately began acting strangely.

 

Sources inside the Osaka Dome say that during the customary round of applause (usually given after a particularly strong match) Pugh was seen to threaten an official, before continuing his celebration. Normally after an OWL match, the competitors are required to shake hands, something which Pugh failed to do in this instance. It's claimed that he threw the title onto the floor, a huge act of disrespect in Japan, before taking a microphone and telling the 17,000 strong audience that he was "Done with Japan". It's then claimed that he insulted the fans in English before walking out of the arena - failing to fulfill his contractual obligated post match interview. It's alleged that later that evening, Pugh was seen boarding a flight to New York's JFK Airport, although this cannot be confirmed at this time.

Performing under the moniker "The Ego" for the better part of two years, it had been thought that Pugh had put his previous problems behind him before this latest incident. Earlier in his career he was fired from Gamers Championship Wrestling after an altercation with several of the promotions top stars, before arriving in CCW, later moving to OCW where he went on to make a handful of appearances before being released. It's thought that his contract was to expire at the end of December, and that he had no intention of renewing it - apparently he was hoping to return to the USA and try his luck back in OCW - who are coincidentally based in New York City. When contacted, OCW's owner Mr Sensation was unavailable for comment on the matter.

 

Update: Anthony Walker has sent over the footage from the end of last night's OWL event

He sucked in WWE, Not in WCW

 

Compared to Eddie, Benoit and Jericho he sucked everywhere.
