An OldSchool Runescape streamer who was hosted by another Twitch channel accidentally sliced his finger open with a katana sword while celebrating in excitement.

For smaller Twitch streamers, getting hosted by a big channel can see a huge influx of viewers visit your broadcast, which is often an exciting moment for those who find themselves thrust into the path of another streamer’s audience.

It appears one streamer got a little too excited though, slicing open his finger with a katana blade moments after the host took place.

Streamer gets too excited when hosted on Twitch

According to people who claim to have been watching the streamer while it happened, the Old School Runescape player was streaming his gameplay, when he suddenly found himself getting hosted by another broadcaster.

Presumably attempting to celebrate the moment, the Twitch streamer, whose name is believed to be CloudWizard can be seen reaching for a katana blade which was sitting off camera, grabbing it and pulling it towards him.

While the original clip and broadcast have been deleted, in a mirror video we can see him tilt the katana’s sheath, causing the traditional Japanese sword to fall out of its cover and towards the ground. In an attempt to save it, the streamer reached down and grabbed it with his left hand.

Warning: The clip below features graphic images of the wound.

Somehow remaining relatively serene just moments after dealing a horrible injury to himself, CloudWizard showed off his finger, which was covered in blood and had a deep gash down the center to his audience, calmy saying: “I just cut my finger boys. I just cut my fucking finger bad guys. “

Holding his hand, he then attempts to leave the room, struggling to open the door with his injured finger.

The clip, and the broadcast it’s from have both been removed, but a user on Reddit claiming to be his stepfather informed interested users that “this is what happens when you take your dad’s weapons not realizing it’s real. He’s doing fine and ended up getting 11 stitches.

“He’s pretty embarrassed by the whole thing. He still gets shit for being a dumbass though.”


A user claiming to be CloudWizard’s father stated the streamer was “pretty embarrassed.”

If there is a morale to be learned from this story, it’s likely that celebrating a momentous moment on Twitch is probably best done without a massive, and deadly sharp, blade. Otherwise, you may end up in the emergency room like this poor soul.

YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul has officially revealed that he’s taking on another fight, as announced in a “huge” broadcast on January 20 — and he wants his fellow content creators on the undercard.

Yesterday, Jake Paul revealed in a tweet that he had a big announcement coming up for his fans, which would be broadcasted officially via Triller.

The day is finally here, and Paul has disclosed that he’s already set for an upcoming bout, and even gave his fans an official date for the fight.

Who is Jake Paul fighting next?

Unfortunately, the YouTuber didn’t drop any names, leaving many in the dark as to who he could be facing off against.

However, Paul has made a wealth of enemies in professional fighting circles since his 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson in November of last year, including the likes of MMA artists Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, and even Conor McGregor.

In fact, Askren accepted Paul’s challenge when the YouTuber called him out via social media, although things have been especially quiet on that forefront for some time afterwards.

Thus far, there’s no telling who Paul will fight next, although many fans are anxious for him to take on a professional fighter in wake of his multiple victories over celebs and fellow influencers.

When is Jake Paul’s next fight?

Jake Paul will be throwing down in the boxing ring again on April 10, 2021 — a little under three months away.

This fight will come just two months after Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition against Floyd Mayweather, already proving 2021 to be a fairly busy month for the brothers.

As for the event itself, Jake was keen to have other influencers on the undercard. Many fans have expressed hopes for Slim and Deji to make an appearance — two YouTubers who have already fought in live streamed boxing matches, previously.

That’s not all; Paul also teased that rapper Snoop Dogg will be making an appearance on the mic, making this a truly star-studded affair.

Where to watch Jake Paul’s next fight?

The fight appears to be available to watch via Triller, exclusively, so make sure to set up your account if you want to tune into the action.

Paul is hoping to create the “biggest pay-per-view ever” — but with no opponent yet announced, there’s no telling if his dream will come true in a few month’s time.
