Did The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar bleed on purpose and were they reprimanded?


For those wondering, The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar were not reprimanded for the blood during their match at Hell in a Cell on Sunday. As noted before, there was a commotion at the Gorilla position with Vince McMahon. Whether Vince was really upset or acting like he was upset is a matter of conjecture.

Lesnar flew home after the doctor stitched him up. Undertaker flew home on Monday morning.

It is 100% certain that the blood was not an accident and it's not a coincidence that Lesnar did the same exact spot (head into the post) that he did at WrestleMania. The intent, whether he hit his head on the post or cut himself up, was to get blood and Lesnar taking his glove off to punch Taker was also to get blood. Decades ago wrestlers used to get hard way blood by landing short punches to the eyebrow. Undertaker bled from his forehead, where wrestlers would normally cut themselves.

Also, as noted before, Batista bladed in a match with Chris Jericho in 2008 and was fined $100,000. If it was hard way blood then it was still clearly intentional. It is hard to believe that Lesnar was not reprimanded for shoving the doctor.
