Pro wrestling legend Konnan recently took to his "Keepin' It 100 with Konnan" podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as how he used to bleed a lot in Mexico because his feuds were blood feuds.
“I bladed a lot in Mexico. All my feuds were blood feuds. In a two-month period I would probably bleed twice a week. To me I had a formula and it always included blood.”
Konnan also talked about how bleeding is different in Mexico and Japan as well as how it is a problem in the United States especially in AEW because it just comes off as gratuitous and an example of that is Jon Moxley bleeding all the time despite facing different opponents every week.
“I think the biggest problem about blading nowadays is that in Mexico, which is a whole different culture, very different than the United States in many ways just like Japan is, just like…everybody to doesn’t think like Americans. When you bleed in Mexico people still get hot like 20 years ago. But, here is the problem in the United States especially in AEW. It just comes off as gratuitous. When Moxley is wrestling…every week he wrestles somebody different, usually with very little to no build-up…why are you bleeding?”
