This year’s Pro Bowl set a much different tone than last year’s don’t-Tase-me-bro game of two-hand-touch, thanks to the blood that was gushing from the hand of Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Even as the intensity of the game faded in the second half, Watt’s blood-splattered jersey was a reminder that this was a different sort of Pro Bowl.

Watt said after the game that his pinky was cut open early in the contest.

“I didn’t even realize how bad it bled, but it bled pretty good. That’s football. It’s not fun if you’re not going to get bloody,” Watt said, via Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com.

Regardless of how long he plays football, this guy has a future in pro wrestling.
