The 2022 AEW Blood & Guts show was filled with thrilling matches and shocking moments, but for one competitor, Angelo Parker, it was a moment of intense fear and uncertainty. Parker, who competed in the Blood & Guts match, recently recalled the moment when he felt like he was close to dying.
On the latest episode of the “Swerve City” podcast, Parker recalled the match where he hung upside down at one point for quite some time, noting that he had bled so much he thought he might “pass away.” The match saw Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz, and Blackpool Combat Club defeat The Jericho Appreciation Society via submission.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On bleeding so much in Blood & Guts: “So that one was — Anarchy [in the Arena] was nuts, and Blood & Guts was was crazy but like, man. I thought I was very close to passing away in that match. I bled so much… I had stopped bleeding at that point [when he was hanging upside down], finally. And then I started doing that hanging upside down thing, and I’m just looking down and I’m just seeing it pouring out.”
On making it that far in AEW: “That one was was crazy. Like, it’s crazy to take a step back from that and realize what it was. Because you know, it’s going to be a constant thing in a conversation, but it was like, when you look at where we were not too long ago, like a year and a half I guess was to that point? Just trying to do this YouTube show just to stand out… and then you’re in this ridiculous match with what, five to four, four different former World Champions in there?”
