7 Times WWE's Women Were Busted Open

Becky Lynch isn't the first - or the bloodiest.

Becky Lynch lauding it over the Raw roster this past Monday, with her face a bloody mess, was an arresting visual for two reasons.

For one, the sight of anybody stood there looking like an extra from the opening scenes of Casualty is bound to cause immediate concern to all but the stoniest of sociopaths. For some, even just a brief glimpse of the red stuff can be enough to make them faint like a Victorian at a flash of ankle.

The gory image was doubly remarkable because, unlike the vermilion veils fans have seen down the years, this one was sported by a woman. Even when WWE was at its most tasteless nadir, higher ups - and particularly, TV executives - were steadfastly squeamish when it came to female performers misplacing platelets.

The Muta Scale may seldom have been coloured by WWE's women, but they've still lost enough between them to fill a vial or two. Perhaps they misread Kevin Dunn's memo as saying he wanted them 'busted'.

7. Chaparita Asari (Raw, 1995)

"Some... um... graphic detail there of what can happen," stuttered Vince McMahon, his face presumably as red as Chaparita Asari's as he uneasily explained to his pre-watershed viewers the hideous mess Aja Kong had made of her opponent's nose.

Kong was being groomed as Alundra Blayze's next challenger before the division was literally thrown into the bin. At the end of her all too brief run - she fought just three matches for the company - Kong set hairs standing on end when she brutalised the youngster Asari.

After flattening her opponent with a package piledriver that was just a step below being a war crime, Kong erased Asari's face from existence courtesy of a sickening backfist. Well, you might as well go out with a bang. Or in this case, a nasal explosion.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
