Former Professional Wrestler Denied Entry to Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World denied Former NWA United States Champion and Mid-South Tag Champion Magnum TA entry for bringing a Segway motorized vehicle with him. A car crash in 1986 severely injured Magnum TA. It immobilized him and ended his budding wrestling career. The crash shattered of two his vertebrae, and his right-side was paralyzed. Supposedly until the accident, TA was being positioned by Dusty Rhodes to become the NWA champion.

His step-daughter, professional wrestler Tessa Blanchard, detailed the ordeal on Twitter.


Can you bring a Segway into Disney World?

While we can sympathize with Magnum’s issues, Disney has every right to deny someone entry if they’re bringing their own transportation. Segways can be dangerous in large crowds. Plus, Disney does provide wheelchairs and scooters for those with disabilities.

When some brought this up, Blanchard responded.


Magnum TA later explained the situation fully on Facebook.

What do you think? Should Magnum TA have been allowed to enter the Magic Kingdom with his Segway?
