Things got crazy in the main event of Joey Janela's LA Confidential.
Nick Gage and David Arquette were having a death match to close the night, when the scene turned ugly. Arquette was busted open after taking a light tube shot to the head and Gage made things worse by taking a pizza cutter to Arquette's forehand. Gage ended up hitting Arquette with another light tube and then jabbed the broken tube into Arquette's wound. Arquette reversed the move and it appears as if something went wrong or Arquette is unhappy with how the match is going.
As you can see in the video above, Arquette and Gage stopped for a moment and things got tense. Arquette tried to pin Gage twice, but Gage kicked out both times. Arquette, holding his neck, ended up leaving the ring, seemingly looking for medical attention. When no one arrived, he got back in the ring to finish the bout. It looked like Arquette wanted to be pinned quickly, but Gage continued on. Arquette appeared to shoot on Gage, wildly swinging a chair that connected. Gage took control, tossing Arquette down and pinning him for the win. Arquette immediately got up and headed to the back.
Please don't watch this video if you are bothered by blood, hardcore wrestling, profanity, Nick Gage, or David Arquette. With that said, I'm posting it due to questions being asked by the wrestling community. #JJLAC pic.twitter.com/MdHJE2KqM0— GIF Skull (@GIFSkull) November 17, 2018
During Gage's post-match promo, Arquette could be heard yelling "I don't need your respect" on the live mic.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Arquette was concerned with how much he was bleeding and there were those backstage angry at how the final moments played out.
David Arquette took to Twitter after the incident and thanked those who reached out to him and jokingly commented that Death matches are not his cup of tea:
