“At the :05 mark, I catch my head in the ropes in a “hangman”, a move that creates the illusion of hanging by, um..actually hanging.”
“The actual injury occurs at the :13 second mark, when I remove myself from the ropes. Amazingly, I was only caught in the ropes for 5 seconds, since it certainly seemed like an eternity while it was happening. […] As I got to my knees outside the ring, i was aware that the injury had to be pretty bad, as there was a constant pitter-pattering of bright red blood on the protective mats outside the ring - a contrast to the injuries to the ear I’d suffered before, which although fairly nasty (more than 10 stitches on at least three occasions) had resulted in almost no blood loss.”
“The ear actually falls from my head at the :51. Go ahead, look a few times; it is indeed a human ear.”
“The referee picks up the ear at :53. […] [He] handed the ear to ring announcer Gary Michael Capetta who (unseen of this video) brought the ear backstage and told Ric Flair that he was in possession of my ear. “I have Cactus Jack’s ear”, he told the Nature Boy. What would you like me to do with it?” By the time I got to the back, someone had put the ear in a plastic bag.”
“The match continued for a mere 1:28 after the ear loss. At approximately 2:14, I come to the realization that I have, indeed, lost my f*&king ear - a sentiment I make clear upon my return to the dressing room, with the quote, “I think I lost my f*&king ear…bang bang!”“
