Real Life Injuries by the Numbers

New Year’s Revolution (2005) – Wikipedia

The first match to take place on the main card was a tag team match, where Christian and Tomko challenged William Regal and Eugene for the World Tag Team Titles.

The match had a notable botch early on when Tomko legitimately clotheslined William Regal in the face, busting his nose open, causing him to lose a lot of blood. As the ending neared, Eugene got the hot tag, but hurt himself performing a dropkick.

Eugene (legitimately) injured himself at New Year's Revolution, in a match with Christian and Tomko, after botching a dropkick. He suffered a ruptured left patellar ligament, which required surgery and sidelined him for several months.[1] This also cost him the World Tag Team Championship, which Regal lost when forced to defend, teamed with Jonathan Coachman as a substitute.

Although you couldn’t really tell exactly what happened, it seemed quite apparent the injury wasn’t being faked. The ending looked very sloppy, improvised, and Eugene legitimately looked to be in a tremendous amount of pain.

In the very next match was for the Women’s Championship, where the champion Lita squared off against Trish Stratus.

However, Lita's title reign that was supposed to gain more momentum and length came to a short end almost a month later when Stratus defeated Lita on January 9, 2005, at New Year's Revolution.[37] In the course of the match, Lita tore her left ACL after executing a Thesz press off the ring apron, which left her unable to properly continue the match and led to a rushed finish.
The ACL is a ligament in the knee

What do you know? Back-to-back knee injuries to start the pay-per-view. This time, you could tell for certain the injury was real just by seeing it. Something must have been in the air.
