German Blood Match

I had forgotten about this type of match, but the German Blood Match certainly sounds interesting. I'm sure it has been run under multiple names and I seem to recall seeing one at one point while digging around YouTube for wrestling gold. I think the funniest aspect is how Dory Jr. points out that "they started with handkerchiefs and went to towels" or however he put it. It's a clever concept in that it gives you a good visual in the blood-soaked towel and also it guarantees the crowd they will see some juice on that card.

The video also touches on Fritz Von Erich, what it was like to wrestle in Texas Stadium and Dory's favorite match of his father's.

It's worth a couple of minutes of your time if you are a wrestling fan.
