Most Brutal Instance of "Color"...

Recommended Posts

...In your opinion as a fan?

 

These could be incidental and unplanned (hardway) or a planned part of the match (blade job) that has maybe gone too far, or perhaps just right, within the context of the match.

 

The one that will always stick out for me, and one that made me feel legitimately queasy, was Eddie Guerrero's blading botch (he cut way too fucking deep) following that ridiculous chairshot by JBL at Judgement Day 2004.

Honestly the creepiest I've ever seen was Zach Gowen on an episode of SD. Brock Lesnar had a match with him (I think) and completely destroyed him. I just remember this one legged kid laying in a pool of his blood on the floor and thinking it felt disturbingly similar to photos from an actual warzone

Jay Briscoe during the cage match with Samoa Joe from the Rexplex was the sickest I've ever seen. The blood was falling off of him clotted.

 

This, easily. I had to look away.

Never saw the Brisco match...now I know I don't want to.

 

Watched JBL/Geurrero blood bath recently and it was heinous as advertised. Never want to see that again.

Funny. I've watched both the JBL/Eddie and Jay/Joe matches in the last month. And yeah. Both are spectacular. Definitely two strong candidates right there. The canvas is painted crimson on both occasions.

 

I'd lean more towards the cage encounter though. Eddie's gash practically SPURTS blood at first, but Jay's gets my vote. It's just a tad more sickening. The bloodletting turns on like a faucet and never really lets up. There's splatter. There's clotting. There's dried, caked on plasma stuck to his skin. It's just an incredible visual by the end.

 

Plus I gotta dish 'em out some bonus points for the crime scene cleanup efforts at the end there. I mean, Eddie's situation LOOKED like it called for medical attention, but it was more about the DQ brutality and the beat-down on Bradshaw. It was like separating a bar fight. None of that with Jay & Joe though. It was like, SHIT. We gotta get this guy to a hospital.

Mad Dog Vachon, on TV, was blading during a brawl with the Crusher when Crusher kicked him in the back of the head, driving the blade deep into an artery. Absolutely brutal and I believe the story that Mad Dog almost died before he got to the hospital.

 

Roger Kent knew something was waaaaaaaaay wrong when he saw it and was trying to get help for Mad Dog while maintaining some semblance of kayfabe on the commentary. It's a bit disconcerting to hear him realizing Mad Dog could be dying right in front of him without really being able to say it. His calls for help were pretty frantic.

 

It should be on youtube, check it out. It happened in either 1970 or 1971.

I dont remember if it was a streetfight or a ladder match between ANX and the Briscoes but Jay and Rhett bled like crazy.

 

This was WrestleMania 27 weekend and is my choice as well. They did a slap exchange with the blood flying that I got a good bit of Rhett's blood spattered on my 7 rows deep.

One that always stands out for me for whatever reason is an Ace Steel blade-job in the undercard of an ROH show. Collyer hits him with a chair and I don't know if Ace cut too deep or he cut in the wrong place but it's pretty sickening. Like the Gowen one, his face is just lying in a pool of blood.

Just watched this on youtube and yeah, it's nasty. Blood everywhere. Kent knew exactly what had happened. Crusher kept attacking Mad Dog even though everyone else seemed to know that he was legit in trouble

I can't believe it took this many posts for someone to mention the legendary Mutoh blade job. For years people described blade jobs on a scale relative to that!

When Necro takes the exploder off of the apron in the match against Joe... yeah.

 

The most impressive use of making something look absolutely horrific was the electric saw spot that MoxBrose took at a Tournament of Death. The blood comes off of his forehead like a waterfall.

Speaking of Jay Briscoe, the angle when they kicked off the Age of the Fall where he was hanging upside-down bleeding on Jimmy Jacobs spiked the ick factor for me.

Yea that was like bleeding out a hog or something. All the blood would splatter on the floor. Jay Briscoe might be one of the better bleeders of this era

Bob Holly had a nasty cut in that RVD match. It's not a Muta Scale bloodbath, but it's absolutely disgusting for how deep the cut is and where it is on his body.

You know you're old when most of the references thrown here come from the 00's in the indies or WWE when yours remain Muto in 90 and Hokuto in 92. Another one from joshi, Ayako Hamada in ARSION against LCO in 1999 was quite the majestic bladejob.

I believe a death match with Sick Nick Mondo where he is literally squirting blood from his arm into his own mouth. This was in the heyday of CZW and on one of their Delaware death match shows.
