Bloodiest matches have never been in short supply in professional wrestling over the years. While it is up for debate as to which wrestling encounter has been the bloodiest or when bleeding and bleeding during matches first entered the industry, it is undeniable that it has left a lasting impression, both literally and symbolically.
A wrestler’s blood portrays a tale of suffering, adversity, and fortitude. To intentionally cause carnage while entertaining viewers at the expense of the wrestler and their body is great dedication.
Simply put, broadening up this list to include matches from all of the wrestling makes it nearly hard to select only ten matches for this list of gory matches.
Even though blood is now less common in WWE wrestling during the PG Era, it still happens occasionally, either accidentally or in specific circumstances on purpose.
While a list of 10 matches does not include every instance of bloodshed in WWE wrestling history, it does make an effort to identify the ten most graphic contests in the organization’s history. Let’s look at the ten bloodiest matches in WWE history to see which performers earned their crimson masks.
HELL IN A CELL: ARMAGEDDON 2000
Six of the greatest wrestlers of all time and the largest at the time competed in one of the most overlooked Hell in a Cell match: a defending Kurt Angle, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Rikishi, and Triple H.
One of the most daring, inventive, and brutal matches in WWE history is still this one. Rikishi received a chokeslam to the cell’s roof. Stone Cold broke a vehicle’s window. Even though it was a mess, it was still enjoyable.
Although it might not have been the most blood WWE has seen, this match has earned its place on this list because everyone wrestler that participated in it spilled blood.
BROCK LESNAR VS THE UNDERTAKER: NO MERCY 2002
This was The Undertaker’s second match in the cell and the first Hell In A Cell match he has ever participated in with Brock Lesnar. They sure made a mess of it.
Lesnar hit the Undertaker in the head with the steel ring steps during their intensely physical and vicious match. Fans can clearly see Undertaker cut himself after removing the blade from his sleeve. He cut himself directly over his eye, which is the only problem.
Undertaker bled more as a result than he would have if he had just cut his forehead in the center. The Undertaker was both pinned and made to bleed by Lesnar. Between the two, it genuinely demonstrated Lesnar’s strength and demonstrated the depth of his character even more so than before.
EDDIE GUERRERO VS JBL: JUDGMENT DAY 2004
This scene in the annals of wrestling is bloody and dramatic. Guerrero sliced his forehead under the timekeeper’s table after JBL fired a chair at him. Guerrero slashed an artery in his forehead, despite the fact that blading was common in wrestling at this time.
Guerrero’s error resulted in a shockingly bloody mess that stunned everyone. He covered the floor and the ring canvas in his own blood, which was all over him.
The fact that Guerrero lost the match to JBL via disqualification is not what wrestling fans recall about it. Fans recall Guerrero receiving a brutal chair shot from JBL and the copious quantity of blood that followed. Guerrero and JBL’s confrontation is unquestionably among the deadliest matches in WWE history.
JOHN CENA VS JBL: JUDGMENT DAY 2005
One of those moments in wrestling history, the outcome of this match has been seared into my memory since I was a young child. The image of John Cena holding his championship while sporting a bloody face is iconic.
After defeating JBL to win the championship at WrestleMania 21, Cena faced JBL to defend his first WWE Title. However, JBL at Judgement Day turned him into yet another bleeding victim, waiting for him during his bout.
JBL struck Cena in the face with a chair, and Cena’s split-open head startled the crowd. Although he was wearing a red mask during his bloodiest match ever, he was still able to successfully defend his title and create a great moment for himself in wrestling history.
BROCK LESNAR VS. RANDY ORTON: SUMMERSLAM 2016
Because of the PG Era, Lesnar vs. Orton featured unexpected bloodshed. Lesnar was displeased after a tough bout and a kick from Orton. He took off his gloves and punched Orton, cutting him open with an elbow to the forehead.
Blood was pouring steadily from Orton’s forehead. Lesnar was declared the winner of the contest by technical knockout.
Despite the fact that the location was predetermined, Orton ended up with a concussion and needed staples in his skull to repair the wound Lesnar actually inflicted on him. The amount of blood Orton spilled makes it the bloodiest moment of the PG Era, although not being the bloodiest place in history.
