Road Warriors SPIKE The American Dream

Talking about being a kid and being freaked out by how brutal someone is.  The Road Warriors turn heel and jump "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes.  This isn't your ordinary beatdown though.  The Warriors decide to really take it to Big Dust by jamming one of their spikes into his face.

Pro-wrestling brutality at its finest. 

The backstage story is really just as fascinating.  My understanding is, and this alluded to in the comments, that Turner execs told Dusty to tone down the blood.  Dusty was also close to jumping to Vinny's promotion up north so he turned the Roadies heel and had them destroy him all in one brutal moment.
