10 Most Genuinely Frightening Moments In Wrestling History

9. Eddie Guerrero’s Botched Blade Job

Blading was very common in the Ruthless Aggression era. At the peak of ludicrousness and ultraviolence, big matches had a 50/50 chance of containing a blade job. Men like Triple H, The Undertaker and Vince McMahon would bleed at every opportunity, slicing open their foreheads to add some crimson to a heated contest.

Eddie Guerrero wasn't the first name you'd think of when it came to blading. He spent the majority of his WWE career in the undercard, impressing crowds with his athleticism and sensational wrestling acumen. Eddie rarely worked matches with blood, avoiding bleeding even in main event matches with Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle. That changed with JBL.

In their match at Judgment Day 2004, Eddie bladed after taking a chair to the head and clipped an artery in his forehead. Blood squirted out of the wound, with rivers of crimson pouring out of his skull for the remainder of the match. The brutality was increased further by JBL applying a sleeper hold, causing even more blood to leak out of the hole in his head. Eddie didn't stop bleeding until he went into shock backstage from blood loss. It remains the most horrifying blade job in wrestling history.
