Wrestler Brian McGhee Allegedly Murders Ex-Girlfriend

It's the kind of shocking story you never expect to see coming.

I was reading pwinsider.com, as I often do, when I came across a story about how former WWE developmental wrestler Brian McGhee was arrested for the murder of what is believed to be his ex-girlfriend Bianca McGaughey. Apparently, McGhee stabbed her to death before leading police in a pursuit which only ended when law enforcement used dogs to get him out of his then crashed car.

According to PWinsider, McGhee was under a WWE developmental contract from December 2010-August 2012. He injured his knee during training, and he never truly recovered from the injury and allegedly found himself the target of ridicule and ribbing by his trainers and fellow trainees.

Months before he was released from his WWE developmental contract he wrote the following on his Facebook, though he later claimed he was a victim of a hacked account -

"Guys, I don't know how much longer I can handle this. Every day is a constant struggle to keep my sanity. I love wrestling and it's all I ever wanted to do. Already going crazy since I've been for like ten months now, but it gets worse. Every day a trainer goes out of his way to rib or disrespect me in front of the boys because I've been out so long. I can't clear myself. I wanna wrestle more than anything, but I don't even know who I am anymore. It's so f--king hard. I just feel it just building inside of me and I don't know how much longer I can contain it. I have daydreams of just f--king everyone up on some real s--t. I'm not a kid. I'm a f--king man. But what do you do when the people in charge of helping you get to the main roster are the ones making your life the hardest. I've been drinking almost every day. It's to the point to where I keep Vodka and Gin in my trunk. Help me!"

PWInsider reports that sources that have contacted them state that McGhee was never the same after his time with WWE, and was "increasingly frustrated" by his time there, though whether his time in wrestling contributed to this awful tragedy is unknown at this time.

In a strange twist for the staff here at Blogzilla 1985, I discovered a strange link between our site and the accused murderer when I went to his Facebook page to see a picture he himself posted after the alleged murder. McGhee posted a picture of a bloody wound, which he then made his profile picture, along with text saying "Didnt (sic) know I had it in me...bitch isfdead (sic)... arip (sic).. I'm next. No jail for meeee bbay(sic)

It's unknown whether the wound is from McGhee himself or his alleged victim, 25 year old Bianca McGaughey.

It was during my time on his Facebook that I noticed he and I have a mutual friend - Blogzilla 1985's own Louie Benson, who most recently came home after living in DDP's Accountability Crib with Page, Jake Roberts, and Scott Hall.

I asked my friend Louie if he had heard the news yet, which he responded by telling me that he was online when the picture and status was posted. Louie seemed rather heartbroken by the news, as he told me that McGhee seemed like a great person when the two spent time together in the late 2000's at LWA, which would later become St. Louis Anarchy not far from where our headquarters are located.

When asked his thoughts on the shocking news, Louie expressed a sentiment that seems to be common on McGhee's Facebook page in wake of the tragedy.

"I guess it's true what they say. It's always the ones you don't expect. I always thought he was a sweetheart." McGhee remains in Florida at Pasco County Jail tonight, where he waits until he is charged with first degree murder.
