WWE reveal image of Heath Slater's eye injury

The common comment you hear after saying you like WWE is the fact that it isn't real.

Although this is correct in some ways, the legitimacy of injuries is far from fake, and that has once again been proven by Heath Slater, who suffered a nasty eye injury during a house show over the weekend.

It's correct that the results are scripted, but what isn't scripted is when things go wrong or injuries happen. Seth Rollins fell victim to that during a house show last year when he suffered a serious knee injury which eventually kept him sidelined for several months.

In fact, plenty of WWE superstars have suffered serious injuries from competing, and although Slater's wasn't as significant, it was still a nasty blow to his eye.

Going up against Titus O'Neil at a house show, Slater was caught in the eye early on in the encounter and eventually needed stitches to cover up the wound. Due to the injury, the match had to be stopped, and O'Neil was crowned the victory.

Backstage, Slater received treatment from WWE's medics and ringside physician Dr. Stephen Daquino said the following to WWE.com regarding the superstar's injury.

"Heath has a six centimeter laceration above his right eye. It was quite open, right down to the bone. He got 18 sutures and hopefully that will close it up."

WWE then took to their official Twitter account to post a picture of Slater following his treatment and it's clear to see just how beaten up his eye actually was.

Despite the nasty looking injury, Slater still had his sense of humour as he responded to the tweet by saying: "it hurts.. But I'm still pretty.."
