Cameras have caught some spectacularly brutal photos of wrestlers bleeding. Images of dripping crimson masks are ours to gawk at forever.
Wrestling's more macabre side is shown off here.
And for the uninitiated, who may think wrestlers use ketchup packets or fake blood capsules to birth these gory messes, think again. It is all real.
An old veteran grappler's forehead tells the story of their self-inflicted blade wounds.
You will see men on this list who've stained countless rings red. Abdullah the Butcher, Ric Flair and Terry Funk won't surprise many fans with their multiple appearances.
With WWE moving away from the era of bloodshed, these photos may become relics. Perhaps they'll be looked back on wistfully or with us wondering what in God's name these guys were thinking.
