Hollywood actor and former World Championship Wrestling (WCW) World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette competed in a Death Match for Game Changer Wrestling on Friday night against Nick Gage, a former Combat Zone Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion who specializes in hardcore wrestling matches. Arquette was cut open badly, and initial reports stated that he may have even cut open the jugular vein in his neck, although it doesn't appear as though that was the case.
Videos have surfaced on social media. It appears as though the match may have turned into a "shoot" (real fight).
David arquette suffered a bad cut on his neck. Wanted out, decided he’d do a quick finish. Nick wasn’t having it so he HIT HIM WITH ANOTHER LIGHT TUBE SO DAVID SHOT ON NICK GAGE— blake beartles (@wavveyboysmith) November 17, 2018

At a point, Arquette got really messed up. He was bleeding bad and no-sold the finish. Definitely turned into a shoot. Arquette came back out all bloody and yelled something at Gage while he was cutting a promo. Arquette took a pizza cutter to the head at one point. #JJLAC pic.twitter.com/kdznVBDNSC— Marc Raimondi (@marc_raimondi) November 17, 2018
