'Scream' Actor David Arquette Suffers Horrific Injury After Wrestling 'Death Match' Turns Ugly
David Arquette is trending online, and not for any reason most people would guess - he's recently suffered horrific injuries during a wrestling death match.
That's right, the 47-year-old actor recently returned to the wrestling ring after years away from the sport only months ago and already he's been put out of action after he was hit with a tube light during his fight against Nick FN Gage, on Friday.

During the fight, which was broadcast live on TV, Arquette was hit over the head with the long light bulb a received injuries to his neck, which he ended up profusely bleeding from.
He didn't give up though, bleeding or not, he carried on and proceeded to use a classic wrestling move on Gage by hitting him over the head with the chair.
However, because of the blood pouring from Arquette, Gage got the upper hand and managed to pin his opponent making him the victor of the LA hardcore fight.
Following the fight Arquette was required to go to the hospital for medical attention and plenty of stitches. The star posted a photo of his cut tattoo on Twitter along with the comment: "Thank you to all the fans for your love I'm a stitched up. Miss Elizabeth is crying."
The match clearly took its toll on the star as he tweeted: "Turns out Death Matches aren't my thing."
Death matches are not for the faint of heart, full stop. They're a pretty brutal form of wrestling - or hardcore wrestling - where normal rules for the sport don't apply, which is why it was a legal move for Gage to use the light bulb as a make-shift weapon which, unfortunately, caused a fair bit of damage to the star.
When a fan tweeted to him saying he hopes Arquette doesn't go through that again, he said: "Yeah I'm done with that stuff."
He also spoke out to another fan implying he's happy to be alive after the ordeal, he said: "Honestly I'm just glad I'm on this side of the dirt."
Arquette is no newbie to the sport, back in 2000 he had a short stint as WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
Though he may be known for his role in the Scream movies (or his marriage to the former Friends star Courtney Cox) his role in Ready to Rumble had the actor take part in the wrestling competition and has since been blamed for the downfall of the WCW company.
