Top 10 Horrifying Wrestling Injuries Captured On Camera. The dialogue still reverberates around the subconscious of those old enough to remember the countless injuries WWE superstars recounted to stop fans attempting random acts of violence on one another. Kurt Angle thought he’d broke his tailbone. Rikishi dislocated his right shoulder.
Top 10 Horrifying Wrestling Injuries Captured On Camera.
10. Joey Mercury’s Face
The above visual alone is enough to realise just how unlucky Joey Mercury was to find his fizzog p*ssing blood at the
mid-point of a filler pay-per-view. But the MNM star leaving half of his face stuck to the side of a ladder took all sorts
of odd circumstances conspiring beyond Jeff Hardy’s terrifying teeter-totter spot.
9. Sabu’s Neck
The sequence that gave Chris Benoit the first marketable nickname of his North American career thanks to the
resourcefulness of Paul Heyman had terrifying consequences for Sabu. The ‘Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal’ star had
joined Benoit in making a name for himself either side of the Pacific as fearless and death-defying, but his
inadvertent 1994 neck break saw him staring down legitimate paralysis and made a ‘Crippler’ out of a quiet Canadian.
8. Cactus Jack’s Ear
Ever the worker, Mick Foley had to wait years to make the best of the horrendous situation when a 1994 Munich WCW house show match with Vader went full Tyson/Holyfield.
7. Bob Holly’s Back
Bob Holly was far more ‘Hardcore’ than ‘Spark Plugg’ in real life, but was still nails enough to compete in the odd few
stock car races just to get immersed in his horrendous early-1990s gimmick. He was disqualified for some
unnecessary roughness in those too.
6. Steve Austin’s Neck
One of the most famous injuries in pro wrestling history was also one of the ugliest. As if to reduce the severity of it
when discussing the botched Tombstone, Stone Cold Steve Austin routinely describes getting ‘dropped on his head’
at SummerSlam 1997. It trivialises a flub from the late Owen Hart that could have left him paralysed.
5. Vader’s Eye
Known as much for his gentle temperament off-screen as his fiery persona with the cameras on, Vader’s hard-man
aesthetic was in essence the most underrated aspect of his work. Most colleagues referred to him as a “teddy bear”
behind the scenes, and the shower shoes sh*tkicking he took from Paul Orndorff betrayed the fabulous monster
within he was capable of channelling. As was the relatively relaxed approach he had to his eyeball popping
out midway through a match with Stan Hansen.
