Re: Analyze This: Blading & Bleeding
Actually I think blading was a pretty well kept kayfabe secret until the infamous 20/20 episode where Eddie Mansfield sat there and bladed for the camera.
As I have said before that was the moment kayfabe died, and I also think it was the moment blading should have died.
The most notorious bladers of all time?
Dusty Rhodes, Abdullah, The Original Shiek, Brusier Brody, Tiger Jeet Singh.
I can recall watching Jonathon Boyd blade his forehead at the Great American Bash in Nashville probably 85(?). After watching the 20/20 piece I knew what to look for as did millions of fans. Before that it was always....and I know this will sound crazy to you guys who know they blade.....an argument as to whether the blood was from a packet or real, and honestly most people thought it was real. They just had no idea that they cut themselves.
