Blood In The WWE

Hi Scott,

Any idea on why the WWE dropped their policy on stopping the matches when a wrestler was bleeding and patched them up? I notice now that when there is blood in a match the ref puts on rubber gloves, but they don’t stop the match and do the aforementioned. I remember just prior to this the live audience on a couple of PPVs booed the hell out of a few matches being stopped so they could fix up the wrestler that was bleeding. Did this have anything to do with it? Thanks.

​The ref was all up in Samoa Joe’s face at that Takeover show against Finn Balor, trying to stop the bleeding. I think it’s just a case-by-case basis, given how fickle Vince is about this stuff. ​If you’re a big enough star, there’s not much that the ref is going to be able to do about it.
