Fans that attended the live event in Toronto on Saturday night probably noticed that the main event ended abruptly.
Scroll down to see the video and you will see that Samoa Joe was bleeding badly a few minutes into the match. The trainer tried to clean him up so that the match could continue but apparently, the cut was bad enough that the referee felt that it was better to stop the match. We all know about WWE’s “no blood” policy (except on very special occasions like when Vince McMahon wants to bleed on TV) so it’s not a surprise to see trainers tending to a wrestler during a match but I can’t recall too many times when a match was stopped due to blood.
Understandably, Joe was upset as the referee told him that the match was over and he would need to walk to the backstage area. One person in attendance told us that the match did not go longer than 5 or 6 minutes, at best.
