I have to laugh, I was sitting around thinking about how the WWF used to use a red x on the TV screen labeled "Censored" whenever there was blood in a match. I remember Blackjack Mulligan applying the claw and the blood started gushing out of the forehead of some jobber and then the X appeared. God...that was pretty lame at the time but also kept a young audience very intrigued.

No such thing as an "essential carb."

YES!!

I recall Ron Bass working an angle with Beefcake. Bass busted Beefcake opened with a knuckleduster, Brutus got color, and WWF replayed the footage with the dreaded "X" and sometimes also in black and white.

Cheesy, but effective to a degree.

Even as a kid, though, I knew why they did it, but I never understood why because I had a PWI from a couple of years earlier with Dusty Rhodes covered in blood on the cover.
