On This Date in WWE History: Eddie Guerrero destroys the Muta Scale at Judgment Day 2004

The Muta Scale? Bah! In 2004, Eddie Guerrero created his own scale in a bloody affair at WWE Judgment Day.

Back in 1992, The Great Muta took on Hiroshi Hase at a New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) show. After getting cracked across the dome with a metal tool, he gave birth to what all now knowingly refer to as "The Muta Scale".

The Muta Scale measures an amount of blood loss. Say, a wrestler eats a chair shot to the skull and gets a nice amount of color. That might be a .5 on the Muta Scale.

Even a hardcore fan spending days on end watching Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) and all manner of death-matches from Japan, would never see a match where someone replicated -- hitting a 1.0 -- Muta's blood loss.

That is, not until WWE Judgment Day 2004.

Eddie Guerrero took a direct chairshot -- ugh -- from John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) and not only hits the fabled score, but downright sets it on fire, rebuilding it in his own image. It ought to now be known as The Eddie Scale.

Check out the bloody good time right here...
