The Birth of the Muta Scale aka Damn thats a lot of blood!

A look at the birth of one of the most infamous rating scales in Pro Wrestling.
From Wikipedia

Bleeding: The Muta Scale

Used to describe how much a professional wrestler bleeds during a match, compared to a New Japan Pro Wrestling match between The Great Muta and Hiroshi Hase on December 14, 1992 in which Muta bled an unprecedented amount. [citation needed]

The Muta is normally measured in tenths, ranging from 0.1 Muta to 1.0 Muta, 1.0 Muta is also known as a "Full Muta". Cactus Jack is usually said to have reached 1.0 Muta in the finals of the 1995 IWA King of the Deathmatch tournament, while more recently, The Undertaker is thought to have reached 1.0 Muta in his match at the 2002 No Mercy against Brock Lesnar in the Hell in a Cell main event match, as well as Eddie Guerrero in his match with JBL at Judgement Day 2004.

The match itself.
