THIS is bloody wrestling! (Not-for-the-squeamish)

Jos LeDuc vs Bruiser Brody (with Scott Casey as the guest referee). Watch out for that finger or you'll lose it! This is from World Class in the early 80s, I think.

Sgt Slaughter after losing his WWWF alley fight with Pat Patterson (c.1980).

Ric Flair was bleeding in the early 80s...

...and he was still bleeding in WCW in the late 90s. Come to think of it, Nature Boy's still a willing bleeder in WWE today!

Superstar Billy Graham chokes out Kevin Sullivan down in Florida.

Bruno Sammartino makes Superstar Billy Graham bleed during a classic 1970s match-up in WWWF.

Finally, here's one of those "classic" gory old wrestling mag covers from the 60s. What did parents make of this shit when they found them in their kids' room, I wonder?

A new documentary film is currently in production. It is the brain child, and current pet project of "Superstar" Billy Graham. It is called "Don't Bleed On Me". It is about the blood-letting that pro wrestling is so famous for.
