During an independent wrestling match last weekend, a wrestler accidentally set himself on fire while attempting to perform a stunt, resulting in significant burns to his face and body.
The incident occurred at XPW Wrestling’s deathmatch event in Pomona, Calif. on April 22, when MASADA was trying to blow a fireball at his opponent.
In the video of the no-holds-barred contest, which permits the use of weapons, MASADA grabbed a flaming torch and poured a substance into his mouth.

However, the stunt went awry, and the fire went everywhere, engulfing his entire upper body, including his face, chest, and shoulders, for several moments before being extinguished.
Despite the mishap, MASADA managed to finish the contest, but he was immediately taken to the hospital and diagnosed with first- and second-degree burns all over his body.
The 41-year-old is still in the burn unit of a nearby medical facility, but he says that his face is healing fast, but the rest will take some time.
MASADA explained that he has done the same spot many times during his wrestling matches in Japan, but this time it was rushed, and he believes being outside may have played a part in the accident.
Although he expects to be out of the wrestling scene for a while, MASADA has no plans of hanging up his boots anytime soon, despite his recent injury.
