probably 2008-2009ish. Christian was the first man to get busted the hard way and get cleaned up. It actually makes WWE feel a bit like a legit sporting event when they clean em up, because they do it in boxing too.

They do it in every contact sport because-Guess What?- it's not safe to wrestle while bleeding both for you and your opponent, you can get diseases, there's blood loss of course, blading itself can and has in peoples cases left permanently open grooves in there head.

There are exceptions, at Bragging Rights Cena beat off the guys trying to clean him up to attack Orton and he was only sealed up after being thoroughly exhausted, getting the pinfall and being unable to attack. IMHO? that made the blood more dramatic because it felt like "Oh yeah everyone else stops to get cleaned up, this guy? wants that other guys blood so bad he's not waiting around"

Re: No Blood Policy?

PG has nothing to do with no bleeding.

Blood is allowed on PG tv but WWE just does'nt want to have blood due to superstars health.

Sure UFC is real and WWE isn't, but UFC refs got gloves on just in case someone bleeds and they have to help and stuff. WWE is showing that the bleeding is real and is dangerous to a persons health if you just let them bleed and do nothing about it.

It's good that they try to help someone out if they're bleeding, but it sucks after watching all these years and seeing people getting busted open even during promos to a small amount of blood means the match stops.

Re: No Blood Policy?

I understand the reasons for cleaning up the blood. Blood can be very dangerous. Whether wrestling fans like it or not, it's the right decision. It is truly a shame, because when used correctly, blood can really make a match or confrontation seem all the more epic, but in the end, that can be done without blood, so there's no reason why the health of the WWE Superstars should be at risk. It's just too dangerous.

In most instances, blood isn't needed but if someone gets cut during a match I don't think the match should be stop because it ruins the flow and quality of the match when there's a pause jsut to clean up a cut. This is WWE, not UFC or Boxing, or a sport for that matter. Blade jobs should still be used in pro wrestling as they have for at least the last 40 years, just not on Attitude Era or TNA levels. Bret/Austin, Eddie/JBL, Undertaker/Lesnar, ect wouldn't have been the epic, classic matches they were without blood.

Re: No Blood Policy?

its getting out of hand now. i was at OTL and i saw the frustration on Punk, after he got cleaned up, he completely went ballistic on mysterio to liven the crowd back up.

i say if its busted the hard way and its not gushing, let them fight, of course bladeing is another story and that should be banned

Re: No Blood Policy?

I think the blading/intentional blood should be stopped completely. But if it's accidental blood, then they should NOT interfere with the match unless it's pouring out & could be potentially harmful, just let it culminate into a quicker finish. and then send the crowd's eye into a video package on the titantron while the medic's fix the blood etc up. It would make it whole lot better than just sitting their for 2 minutes watching a ref wipe off a drop of blood ruins the whole hype during the match

Fair enough, it's a health hazard and even if they blood test superstars frequently, it can still prove to be a danger. Fine.

But why do they go out of their way to HIDE it. Covering it up with cleaver camera angles to make sure we don't see it. Pixelizing faces to edit out the blood...even to the point of black/whiting or greyscaling the blood so it doesn't appear red.

Is the blood a health hazard to me at home? Just by the way WWE treats the blood it doesn't seem like health is their main motivate behind hiding it.

Not that I care too much, I don't think blood adds much to a match at all. But stopping matches does take away from it from me.
