Hulk Hogan's Face Bloodied During Presser

11/18/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The blood was pouring down Hulk Hogan's face, back into his hair and down to his mouth after the wrestling legend got into a wild brawl with Ric Flair at a press conference in Australia.

Hogan and Flair were in Australia to promote an upcoming wrestling event, when all of the sudden they began to beat the crap out of each other ... Flair socking Hogan in the head over and over and over.

We know -- you're thinking it's all BS to promote the fight, but we spoke with somebody in Hulk's camp who insists the entire thing was real ... the blood and the injuries.

A wrestling storyline. Those two have clashed in wrestling terms since their days in the WWF in the early 90s. I've seen them hug like friends on tv in the past. Just a wrestling ploy. I bet there is no bruising or swelling on Hulk's face today.

I find it hard to believe. It's just another publicity stunt, that the media has fallen for. Check this out: http://stores.homestead.com/TJWVideoltdcom/-strse-Television-cln-Soap-Opera%27s/Categories.bok

Old wrestling trick, see that line cut on his forehead? It was done with a small razor, wrestlers do this all the time, in the wrestling industry "red turns to green". If you ever see a wrestlers head close up you will see lots of thin scars from these cuts. Google it and see.

Looks like the outline of a packet of fake blood on his forehead. Not to mention the consistency of the stuff. Nice try, no cigar, you dumb promoters.

Yeah, that doesn't even look like blood.

But if Brock Lesnar can be installed as the UFC champ... sure, whatever.

OKAY! I thought everyone knew this about wrestling, but maybe not. The blood is real. When the wrestlers are sweaty a small laceration can look like a big deal. These guys are pros and know just how hard they can hit and kick each other with out causing permanent injury. It was probably a shoot. That is terminology in the biz where the wrestlers can get really physical. Once again they know the limits of their bodies and how hard they can come into contact with one another.

But wrestlers can get seriously injured. Owen Hart is the most classic example. But blown knees and hips are common as are broken necks and the need for corrective back surgery is also common place.

The 'attack' was clearly staged, Ric Flair's not sitting in an Aussie police station right now. As already noted, Hogan cut himself to get those pics. TMZ really needs to consult with a pro wrestling expert before running such stories in the future.
