So I have heard about this infamous angle for years and finally saw footage of it. It's the one where Embry is attacked by Skandor Akbar and his thugs in the cage and beaten with a baseball bat.

As the story has always been relayed to me, Embry either induced vomiting in the ring to make it appear that he had suffered a concussion, or he induced vomiting in order to look like he was spitting up blood.

Now, in the video you do hear Mark Lowrance say something about Embry spitting up blood, but there is no evidence of any major blood on the canvas or anything looking like vomit on the mat.

So has this angle been played up for years in re-telling after re-telling to the point that it got worse and worse with each passing recap, or did I miss something?

Here 'tis:

4/21/89 Dallas
Eric Embry NCO Skandor Akbar, cage match, special referee Frank Dusek
Matt Borne won six-man elimination match
Beauty & The Beast beat Steve & Shaun Simpson

And yes, he actually did.  BTW, if memory serves, the first broadcast of Eric upchucking (on Championship Sports the following night) was totally uncensored.  Undoubtedly there were some complaints, because in all subsequent airings, the puke was pixelated.

That may have been the case where I saw the replayed footage and just didn't notice the censorship for some reason, or they simply did a better job cutting out any footage that showed it.

Yeah, that's the REALLY censored clip...they cut to the interview before Embry actually started hurling.

Yes that was the clip I saw. OK that makes sense as to why it looked a lot less than what I had heard over the years.
