TOM MAGEE RECOVERING AFTER SEVERE ASSAULT OUTSIDE HOME BY BRYAN ROSE | @br26 | MAY 18, 2018 3:12 PM
Tom Magee, a former bodybuilder best known for his run in the WWE, was severely beaten outside of his home on Tuesday.
According to a CBS Los Angeles report, Magee, 59, was assaulted by as many as six men in what appears to be a conflict over a parking spot. Magee, who serves as a neighborhood watchdog, spotted the men outside and confronted them. He suffered a broken jaw, broken eye socket and a concussion in the process. He has since then been released from the hospital and is currently recovering at home.
The Los Angles police department are investigating the situation. Justin Lee, 20, and Degrate Bryant, also 20, were taken into custody on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
Magee, who has a background in olympic weightlifting, gymnastics and a black belt in karate wrestled for the WWE from 1986 through 1990. Infamously, the story goes that Bret Hart did such a great job carrying him in his debut match that he was quickly pushed as a top prospect.
Despite a tremendous athletic background, Magee never progressed as a wrestler and eventually left pro wrestling after his departure from the WWE.
He later went into acting, with a notable role in the 1991 film Stone Cold with former NFL star Brian Bosworth.
