People can say whatever they want about professional wrestling, but getting manhandled in the ring by big burly men has always had its risks. Professional wrestling has routinely resulted in aches, pains and bruises. There isn't a night that these guys aren't icing their wounds. But sometimes a line is crossed and tables go flying or chairs are smashed over someones head, which can result in some very real damage. Often blood has found its way into many wrestling matches, intentionally or not.
When wrestlers deliberately cut during the match, it is referred to as a "bladejob". Some wrestlers have been known to cut themselves late in the match, usually on the forehead, where the blood will mix with their sweat, causing it to look worse then it really is. Vince McMahon has since banned any intentional bleeding, but nothing can be certain considering what stunts pro wrestlers have pulled off throughout the years. We don't get the pleasure of seeing any blood spilled very often anymore, but blood still seems to make an appearance in the ring now and then. Often jumping from more then 10 feet to the ground, getting hit with barbed wire bats, and going through announce tables, wrestlers are definitely more than just costume wearing athletes. Wrestling is one of the most physically demanding endeavors, and can take a heavy toll on the body after just one match. Professional wrestlers aren't just actors as some people may think, they love what they do and are willing to do almost anything to put on a show for their fans. Some of the most memorable matches in wrestling history involved blood, lots of it. Whether it was planned or not, real or fake, bloody matches in wrestling are some of the most memorable we have ever seen.

The Undertaker and Vince McMahon went toe to toe in this Buried Alive match in 2003. The Undertaker quickly started off the match with a deadly punch on Vince, busting him open and the blood was visible right from the very start. McMahon donned the crimson mask and the blood was all over the mat. The Undertaker also hit Vince with a shovel resulting in more blood loss for the WWE chairman. Amazingly, Vince was able to bury The Undertaker thanks to Kane, winning the match, even though he was covered in blood.
