WWE: The fine line between real & fake injuries

With WrestleMania XXX fast approaching, there is sure to be a high number of injuries during the hard-hitting matches that are scheduled.

In the main event Brock Lesnar will be looking to break the Undertaker's streak of 21-0 and both wrestlers have had their fair share of bumps and bruises in their time.

Probably Lesnar's worst accident came during his WrestleMania debut at WrestleMania XIX when he faced Kurt Angle in the main event. 

On the edge of a victory, Lesnar climbed to the top turnbuckle, something extremely out of character for him. Angle was flat out but also far away from Lesnar in the corner, and The Beast went for a Shooting Star Press but fell short of Angle, landing awkwardly with an immense amount of force onto his neck. 

Somehow, remarkably, Lesnar managed to get back up and finished the match with an F5, it was clear from his bleary eyes though, that he was in a considerable amount of pain.

His opponent, the legendary Undertaker has succumbed to various injuries during his historical WWE career. The Phenom has experienced a number of broken bones in his face thanks to powerful hits from the likes of Mabel and Rey Mysterio. 

At the Elimination Chamber in 2010, fans were watching the ever-scary Undertaker entrance when he was burned by his pyrotechnic display. He consequently threw off his trench coat and ran down the ramp, somehow still able to compete in the match.

Another big name at WrestleMania XXX who had a terrible injury is Triple H when he and Stone Cold Steve Austin faced Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho in a tag team main event match on Raw in 2001. 

As Triple H went to free his partner from the Walls of Jericho submission move, he tore his left quadricep muscle entirely. Despite this catastrophic injury Triple H managed to continue the match, even suffering the Walls of Jericho himself. 

Although these wrestlers may look like they can't be broken, some of the injuries they sustain are completely real and can be potentially life threatening. This though of course, is all part of the WWE superstar lifestyle.
