David Arquette might want to consider sticking with acting full-time.
The 47-year-old star of the “Scream” movies, an amateur wrestler, competed in a hardcore, death match-style bout Friday night in Los Angeles, leaving the ring covered in his own blood from an apparent neck wound.
It happened during a promotional match for Game Changer Wrestling at Joey Janela’s LA Confidential. Arquette was facing off against wrestler Nick FN Gage.
Graphic video quickly spread across Twitter. The footage showed Arquette and Gage’s violent encounter, which included various weapons and stunts. Arquette could be seen in one clip dropping Gage onto folding chairs, while in another Gage attempted to scalp Arquette with a pizza cutter.
WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO
After getting hit over the head with a light tube, Arquette is seen immediately grabbing his neck. He was able to continue the match and quickly pin Gage to win. He then walked away from the ring covered in blood.
Arquette later tweeted that he had been “stitched up” and that, as it turns out, “Death Matches aren’t my thing.”
Arquette has competed in wrestling before, most memorably while promoting his 2000 film “Ready to Rumble.” Now 18 years after the film, Arquette told ESPN he has decided to pursue a professional wrestling career.
“This time it’s far more intense, far more grueling,” Arquette told the sports network. “I’m 47 now. The body doesn’t react the same way as when you were younger.”
