Nicholas "Nick Gage" Wilson
Nicholas "Nick Gage" Wilson, an independent pro wrestler best known for his violent matches in the South Philadelphia-based Combat Zone Wrestling promotion, is being sought for allegedly robbing a PNC Bank branch in Collingswood, NJ, last week.

Wilson is being accused of  stealing $3,000 from the bank along Haddon Avenue at about 1:40 p.m. on Dec. 22 according to Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk and Collingswood Police Chief Richard Sarlo.

Wilson, a four-time CZW champion who is 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, allegedly handed the teller at the bank a note saying he would shoot her if she didn't hand over the cash.

"Combat Zone Wrestling, LLC has no direct knowledge of any alleged wrong doings by Nick Gage," the company said in a statement released on its website. "We firmly discourage any fans from emulating any of the actions alleged. We also hope that if these accusations are true that Nick will turn himself over to authorities."

Wilson's last known address was on Lakeshore Drive in Camden and authorities are asking the public for help in locating him. Anyone with information can call the Camden County Prosecutors Office at 856-225-8400.
