During an NXT live event in Fresno this week, Austin Aries was wrestling Shinsuke Nakamura, when he was caught with an errant kick just below the eye. Aries began bleeding enough that the referee was forced to stop the match early, but fortunately the injury wasn’t serious and only required a couple of stitches. Of course, since it was right under his eye, there was some swelling, and Aries eventually posted the gruesome results on social media. For the squeamish, we’ve put the picture underneath this video of the injury happening, so you can turn back now if you’d like.

Ouch. This ain’t ballet, kids. On the bright side, Aries probably won’t need makeup for his Halloween costume this year.
