With the amount of injuries that have been spreading through the WWE roster right now, no one can call wrestling fake.
Daniel Bryan will be out for months, so will Goldust and Jey Uso - both of whom are suffering with shoulder injuries. Meanwhile, Ryback potentially suffered broken ribs during his match at the Payback PPV against Bray Wyatt last night.
'The Big Guy' wasn't the only WWE Superstar who came away from last night's pay-per-view worse for wear however.
Stitches for Ziggler
Dolph Ziggler may have finally gotten Sheamus to "kiss me arse", but Ziggler suffered a brutal looking gash on his forehead that required several stitches to fix after the fight. The official WWE Twitter account posted a photo of Ziggler after he'd been seen to by doctors.
And if that wasn't enough for you, the WWE even went the extra mile and posted a video of Ziggler having his head-wound actually stitched up. It's probably best not to watch this if you're eating.
The Show-off is made of stern stuff and this is far from the first time that he will have had to undergo some hasty repairs after a tough night in the ring. That doesn't make the process any less painful though, and it won't have been made easier by the events that were unfolding as Dolph was treated.
The injury came late into the match, when Ziggler threw a hard headbutt and caught the skull of the Irishman, Sheamus.
It wasn’t a small cut either, with Ziggler donning a huge 'Crimson Mask' with his face and hair being caked in blood. Surprisingly, the match wasn't stopped by the refs and was allowed to continue for a few minutes before Sheamus hit his Brogue Kick for the win.
