The death of nine year old Domori Miles, who leaped to his death on Tuesday off his Brooklyn, NY rooftop with a makeshift parachute and the alleged connection to WWE's Smackdown vs. Raw video game has been picked up by a number of media outlets, including the Associated Press. 

All the major New York City newspapers ran articles on Miles' death today as well.  The New York Post ran nearly a full page, including a big photo of Jeff Hardy, who a friend of Miles claimed the boy was trying to imitate, leaping off a ladder. 

The boy snuck out of his home without his sister realizing while their mother made a quick trip to a nearby store, gaining access to an unlocked rooftop in their housing project before leaping to his death.

WWE issued a statement saying that they send their deepest condolences, but asked that a "full investigation" be made before conclusions are reached, as none of the characters in the video game use parachutes or leap off buildings in the game.



Another bunch of Bull....you know the Post who is anti-Vince/WWE would be all of this.

This has been all over the news here in NY.  A 9-year old kid with a garbage bag tied around his neck like a cape climbed up onto the roof of his 10-story building and jumped off.  Somehow, this has been blamed on WWE.  The kid's friend says that his favorite video game was "Raw vs. Smackdown!" and that he was imitating Jeff Hardy's swanton bomb.  This has naturally led to an uproar among parents as it relates to violent video games as well as wrestling.  Jeff Hardy's picture has been plastered all over the papers too, although he's called Jeff Harvey by some (I think Mike Adamle is now a newspaper editor).

So a few things:

1. Wearing a cape probably indicates he was trying to fly like Superman, not do a wrestling move.

2. It's pretty obvious, much like the Columbine hysteria, that as time goes on it'll be revealed that the kid didn't even like wrestling and had serious mental problms.  It could even be a suicide that the parents are trying to cover up by placing false blame.

3. Even if he was imitating a wrestling move, when was the last time any wrestler did it off a 10-story building?

4. If a 9-year old doesn't realize that a plunge from a 10-story building will be fatal, why should we care if he's dead?  I'm personally glad this retard won't grow up and go on welfare or have 16 illegitimate kids who grow up to be rapists.

This has nothing to do with wrestling and everything to do with stupidity.

Hopefully a Parachute Backyard Wrestling promotion emerges.

At least he didn't say "I'm Ric Blade, bitch" to his sister

Hmmmmm - a Kid dies trying to emulate Jeff Hardy, while the real Jeff Hardy still walks this earth despite years of suicidal bumps and obscene drug use.  Works for me.

Why doesn't the media go after the garbage bag industry for producing such flimsy products?

"a makeshift parachute"

can this be interpreted as "he imitated Jeff Hardy" ?

In the 60's and early 70's it would have been interpreted as "he imitated Wile. E. Coyote trying to catch the Road Runner".

Kids have always imitated stupid shit they see on TV since the medium was invented. Tell the parents to shut the damn thing off instead of letting the kids watch it endlessly and blaming what they see for the problem.

You know that in the future all garbage bags will have a warning on them saying "This product is not intended to be used as a parachute."

Bullshit. I'll bet B.A. Barackus could build a parachute from a trash bag.
