WWE Attitude Era star lost HALF HIS FOOT as he reveals freak accident that saw him rushed to hospital | The Sun

A former WWE star from the company's famous Attitude Era has revealed he lost HALF HIS FOOT in a freak accident.

Dennis Knight, 54, performed as Phineus Godwinn in the WWE during the 1990s.

And he claimed the world tag team titles on two occasions alongside partner Henry Godwinn.

Knight, who has an eyeball tattoo on the back of his head, also wrestled under the name Mideon when he was part of The Undertaker's faction The Ministry of Darkness.

He spent five years with the WWE – then called the WWF – before he left in 2001.

He remained around wrestling for another decade, eventually retiring in 2012.

And he then turned his hand to cooking as he became a professional chef.

He started his own catering company, Dennis Knight Catering, but has now revealed getting involved in the cooking industry led to him suffering a shocking injury.

Speaking to AdFreeShows.com, he said: "I had to take a break [from being a chef]. I got half my foot cut off about six months ago.

"There’s these things called speed racks. They’re like big squares, and they have shelves, and you wheel the food around. There could be hundreds and hundreds of pounds when they’re fully loaded.

"One of them fell off of a broken back deck and landed on my foot and because of the fractures in my spine, I can’t, and this is crazy, I can’t feel from my knees down.

"So like, when I was cooking a lot, I wore a hole in the bottom of my big toe, like, to the bone, and it got infected, and yeah, I didn’t even feel it.

'This thing fell on my foot, and it was like, oh, it just felt kind of like a little swollen, but that was it, but I really couldn’t feel anything.

"So then I go home and I take my shoe off and I put my sock off and two of my toes are just hanging off there and one of them was in the sock and I didn’t know. This was like an hour later."

He continued: "So I went right to the hospital. I was there for like five days getting antibiotics and then they took off, yeah, I have no toes on my right foot. I have size 15 foot, but my right foot is like an 11 now. 

"It’s just like where all your toes start. They just clipped them off so it’s like a big slipper. Yeah, and I can’t feel it at all, which is weird.

"I started working and then I was going to the gym a lot and I wore a hole on the bottom of my foot without knowing it. 

"Like, I got sore and when that happens, I had to stop and make sure because it causes an infection."
