Following yesterday’s news story where a 20 year old man performed a power bomb on an 18 month old, killing him due to head injuries, WWE issued a statement distancing themselves from the story.

“There is no excuse for a 20-year-old grown man to assault an 18-month old child, no matter what. Using a flimsy excuse about emulating a wrestling maneuver does not absolve Brandon Hoffman of this abhorrent crime. The death of Bryson Shoemaker is a tragedy, and WWE offers its condolences to the child’s mother, Sierra Shoemaker,” the statement read.

Hoffman used the Undertaker’s ‘last ride’ power bomb on the child of his girlfriend but missed the bed for the landing and the kid ended up crashing on the hardwood floor.
