In the early days of WWE, the most popular rumor was that the wrestlers would carry ketchup packets in their wristbands which in turn would burst open during swats and punches. The reality is that many of the injuries are staged, but the blood is actually real. Wrestlers will slice their foreheads with a small razor blade after being slammed against the ropes, which in turn creates an effect of a severely injured forehead.
