Got Blood?

Recommended Posts

After rewatching some of the recent PPVs Im starting to get a little worried about the sheer amount of blood. Not just on a visual level, but what about the health aspect?

 

With the explosion of AIDS in the American porn scene shouldn't people, especially partying wrestlers, be more aware? Not that I'm saying wrestlers sleep around or share needles........ but better to be safe. And I somehow doubt that Vince encourages regular blood tests.

 

Over to you smart people to teach me why so much blood is good.

Dont they wrestlers take some form of pill before matches to thin the blood making it seem like there is a lot more of it and also making it brighter?

I think blood looks god but it shouldnt happen too frequently

it only adds to the intensity of a match and only should be used to either further develop of large feud or end it at the climax in say, the final battle.

no doubt eddie being busted wide open at judgement day only adds to the already intence feud between him and bradshaw and i am betting on the final match between the two which would come under a few months wil be another blood bath

I think blading should not happen too often but when it does it should be done effectively and frequent use makes it less impressive overall

Face it HHH will bleed everytime on a ppv to draw attention to his blood loss and steer away from the fact his performance was so poor... Trip can't move hardly from loss of blood says JR, I say he can't move cos he is Cripple H.

 

The best juicer for timing and impact had to be the Rock, he never really bladed that much so you knew he was in serious trouble if the claret was on the scene, made the comebacks more gripping...

 

As for Eddie, I think he was trying to hard, no blade job should need 16 stiches and an overnight stay in a hospital on fluid to re-hydrate you, thats just a step too far.

Surely they wouldn't thin the blood! That would make them pass out too easily through lack of oxygen. The blood seems more mostly becouse of the fact they cut their heads. Head wounds bleed to buggery.

Blading is made a lot more effective either by aspirin (as captain caveman says) or a few alcoholic drinks prior to the match. Both thin the blood (hence aspirin being used to help minimise strokes) and that coupled with the good capillary supply to the forehead gives the blade job the best effect.

I dont mind a bit of blood in a match to get it over, however too much blood i feel distracts you from the match. I actually decided to watch the Judgement day main event the other day, and it was shocking how much blood was shed by eddie. When i saw sheer amount of blood on and around the ring, my attention went to whether it was actually safe for Eddie to do anything, let alone bother about the match.

 

And yes i agree with darkstar, they need to be sure that they are safe when bleeding out there, Aids is a big problem and they need to put procedures in place to help protect the WWE stars.

basically its become too often an occurance now, getting silly. jericho has the right idea being against blading. I would be aswell.

 

They need to calm it down. Altho if u saw the Raven vs Vampiro match on TWC the other week the blood was literally squirting out of Vampiros head-sick

To be honest, I'll have to say that what with crazy insurance, crazy lawsuits, distressed fans suing everyone and the recent AIDS crisis, Vince McMahon and every wrestler who blades probably takes the utmost care and as many precautions as they can.

 

If I was a wrestler and Vince (maybe NOT an indy fed - but Vince) asked me to blade in my HIAC match vs Kane then I would not worry at all. I'd be well looked after and the crowd would go nuts!

 

I agree that Eddie's blade job on Judgment Day was very uncomfortable to watch (but I did hahaha) and in the end I wanted JBL top put him out of his misery and win the belt. I think even the crowd were uneasy with it.

 

You can imagine the TV show on Sky One: "When Blade-Jobs Go Wrong"...

 

Cheers!

Its fact Cactus, Trip throughout 2003 was poor and granted some of the guys he worked with were dire but to keep people in the match he bladed... This year no, he has been better but I am bitter about Trip's performance last year, and I believe I'm allowed that position should I choose. The comment drew attention also to the fact that in all truth HHH spent most of last year limping from injury to injury and should have taken a rest rather then let himself down in the ring, it was a brave but foolishless step for him to take, hence the Cripple H remark.

It is tied in trust me... you see Eddie is a new maineventer in the WWE, he looks back on the past few years at what the others have done and how successful they were... HHH has been hugely successful in carrying his role until the armour rusted a bit last year and he always does thunderous blade jobs, without fail on nearly every ppv... Eddie and the creative see this and he pulls a hell of a juicer, almost as bad as Vince v Gowen when Vince's head exploded.

 

Then I thought I wish HHH would stop cutting himself to hide his weakness last year, which was his injurys and the fact he carrys too much muscle as well and low and behold so far this year its got better.

The blood letting does seem to be happening an awful lot lately, I'm a firm believer in that "Too much of anything....aint good." Its no longer a big thing, coz it keeps on happening. For the odd BIG match once in a blue moon..yeh maybe, but not all the time!!!!! Blood letting is happening almost as much as razzlers kicking outa finnishers. (something we only used to see in MEGA big matches) Now it happens far too often for anyone to be impressed. Do they need to think their matches through a bit better??? Maybe.

One things for sure: Too much of anything...... "Thats not a good thing..... thats a bad thing!!" :(

I can't believe we've haad two pages on bleeding and nobody's mentioned HBK yet! Since he's moved back to main event level he's seemed to think he has to blade in every match, whether it be RAW or PPV's - he'd probably even blade in the opening match of a house show at the moment!

 

Does anyone else think that this defeats the object of balding - surely it should only be done infrequently to increase the impact - how can bleeding have any impact on a match if everyone in the crowd mis expecting it every tiome you wrestle - as is the case with HBK?

Now, don't get me wrong, HBK has had a lot of bloody matches in the past, as any top WWE superstar would have had, especially a current main eventer. But saying that everyone in the crowd is expecting him to bleed in every match he wrestles is just total crap. Bleeding is for special occasions, buildups to big matches, big matches themselves, good solid matches, or simply accidents. HBK doesn't bleed every match, infact if you want to get right into what you said we could just take every HBK match and see on average how many matches he bleeds in in one year. I guarantee you, the average will not be that many...

 

So before critisizing HBK in the way you did, think about what you just said...
