The life of a professional wrestler is always full of ups and downs, which is why sometimes wrestlers resort to taking substances of some sort to help them cope. On the other hand, this could also mean edibles as well. In fact, former WWE Superstar Bobby Fish took edibles before a huge segment.
Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly have been linked together for many years now, as they went on to win numerous tag team titles all over the world. In San Antonio, Texas, on a night that would go down in history, Adam Cole was poised to play a crucial role in a dramatic storyline in Ring of Honor. The future leader of the Undisputed Era was initially slated to make an appearance as if he was going to join forces with the team.
However, in a shocking twist, he betrayed Kyle O’Reilly before being saved by his friend, Bobby Fish. While on Undisputed with Bobby Fish, former ROH World Champion Matt Taven revealed how Fish took edibles after his match that night, not realizing he had to take part in the main event angle.
“San Antonio, it was like 2015, we were doing an angle where it looked like Cole was going to join with reDRagon and leave us and we were teasing that. Earlier that day, we had a wrestler’s court. Wrestler’s court is always good for the locker room morale, it gets everyone hyped. Everyone is full of piss and vinegar. This show is going off without a hitch, everyone is having a great time.
“Bobby and Kyle go out and have a great match. You came back, everyone is like, ‘what are we doing tonight?’ Someone had edibles. Bobby is like, ‘I’ll take one.’ You eat an edible. I kind of don’t think about it. I come back over to Bobby and was like, ‘Bobby, did you eat that edible?’ ‘Yeah, why?’ He’s getting dressed, about to leave, I go, ‘You have to come out for the main event. You have to come out and run me off.’
“Bobby’s face, instantly, was like, ‘Oh, shit.’ He stopped getting dressed and there was this whole thing where we end up jumping Cole, it looks like he’s going to have Kyle’s back, no, Cole turns on Kyle, Kingdom jumps on Kyle, Bobby is supposed to come out, come running through the curtain, house of fire, jump on me, get me out of the ring.
We’re on Kyle and I’m looking at the curtain because no one is coming. All of a sudden, I see Bobby come through the curtain like he just stepped into the wrong room. Looking around on the ramp, looking at the lights, I look at (Mike) Bennett like, ‘Oh shit, stay here with Kyle.’
“Bobby, finally, slowly walks to the ring as his tag team partner is getting beat up. It’s taking so long that I’m reaching toward Bobby to get him in the ring. Bobby gets in the ring, we’re playing patty cake a little, and I’m like, ‘Bobby, throw me out. Bobby, throw me out! Bobby, you have to get rid of me.’ Nothing is registering on his face to the point where, I just tackled you, we rolled through the ropes, and we lay on the outside to get us out of the situation.”
Bobby Fish saw great success in WWE but failed to do much in AEW last year before he got released. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for Bobby Fish.
