Pearl, Mississippi - Pearl resident Chris Beam is suing Jackson resident Jeremiah Lipking over a living room wrestling match that went horribly wrong twelve years ago. In April of 2000, Beam (17 at the time) and Lipking (then 20) both attended a Wrestlemania party at a friend’s house. As the night progressed, both men became increasingly hopped up on Sam’s Choice cola and salty snacks. By the end of the pay per view main event, they had whipped themselves into the kind of frenzy that only a living room wrestling match could calm. Everything was going just fine as the two men staged their pretend match, both pretending to execute moves made famous by their favorite wrestlers at the time, such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Triple H. Tragedy then struck as Lipking delievered an all too real Pedigree, a move used by wreslter Triple H where one man puts his opponent’s head between his legs, jumps, and and falls to his knees, sending the other’s face into the floor. Others in attendance were stunned that Lipking had taken it to such lengths. Lipking apologized immediately as Beam, more shocked than anything, said he was ok. Fast forward almost 12 years to the day, as another Wrestlemania rolls around, Beam is now suing Lipking over that very move. “That day still haunts me,” says Beam. He continued, “I was just playing around and next thing I know, I’m having my face planted in my bro’s living room floor by a foul pedigree! It wasn’t right then and it’s not right now.” When reached for comment, Lipking simply stated that “Look, it was an accident. Obviously, at that time in my life, I was not all about cashing checks and snapping necks like I am now.” Both men have since retired from the world of living room wrestling but Beam says that he would be willing to come out of retirement for one night only if it meant settling the score with Lipking.
