Joel Maximo of the popular SAT tag team on the independent scene was hospitalized yesterday in Queens, New York after being stabbed in the stomach after an attempted mugging. Maximo spoke with Mike Johnson about the situation and stated he was with independent wrestler Xavier when they were confronted by three would-be muggers in Bushwick, Brooklyn. According to Maximo, when one of the muggers attempted to get Maximo and his belongings, he started “swinging” and then felt pressure in his abdomen, realizing he had been stabbed several times. Xavier called an ambulance and Maximo was taken to a hospital in Queens where he underwent surgery to repair his abdominal muscle. Maximo is expected to be released as early as today and will have staples removed in two weeks.
