At a Wednesday night house show, a Shinsuke Nakamura kick messed Austin Aries up... real bad. Aries Tweeted a picture of his face after getting stitches to close the gash the King of Strong Style opened up while blackening his eye in Fresno:

In a freaky coincidence, SmackDown Superstar Alexa Bliss was also recently injured in a hydration-related incident. She shared the grotesquerie her face has become as a result on Instagram.
(WARNING to... people who don’t like close-ups of the side of people’s faces, I guess?)
This is why wrestlers get so upset when critics call what they do fake, I guess.
H/T to our old friend Josh “DoorsHateMMAFighters” Gagnon for the idea!
