Former professional body builder and WWF wrestler Tom Magee was in headlines this morning as CBS Los Angeles reported that Magee was severely beaten and bloodied up outside of his home in Los Angeles, CA. The site notes that Magee was attacked because of a dispute over a parking spot outside of his L.A. home which led to six young men viciously beating on Magee who will be turning 60-years old on July 1st.
Magee suffered a broken jaw, a broken eye socket and was also given a concussion. LAPD are currently investigating the case and two of the six young men have been taken into custody both being 20-years old. A friend and neighbor of Tom Magee, Kendall Noxxel, who witnessed the attack described the events that transpired before her eyes:
"Tom came and encountered the young men, and it proceeded to a fight," says friend Kendall Noxxel."It was sort of a conflict over who was allowed to park in this spot," Noxxel said.
There was another neighbor who witnessed the beating of the former WWF wrestler but did not want her face shown on camera, but she did confirm that Magee was assaulted by six men and when she along with others rushed over to Magee he was unresponsive.
"They were literally kicking him, punching him in the face and in the head," said the neighbor. "To me, it was attempted murder. If we wouldn't have come out here I don't know if he would be alive. To look at his face... if you saw his face right now and saw what they were doing to him, he's really lucky to be alive," the neighbor said
Tom Magee was signed by WWF in 1986 and shortly after his signing he defeated an up-and-coming Bret Hart in singles competition at a television taping. Over the years Magee would compete on house shows and 'WWF Superstars Of Wrestling' tapings. In 1990 he left the company silently and ventured into Hollywood.
