Still think wrestling is fake?
Here's Impact Wrestling star Eddie Edwards -- after he was bashed in the eye with a baseball bat in the ring ... which resulted in a REAL broken face.
Edwards was wrestling against Sami Callihan in Orlando -- when Sami was supposed to use a baseball bat to smash a folding chair down on Edwards.
But the bat ricocheted off the chair and accidentally struck Edwards over his right eye.
Edwards was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a broken orbital bone and a broken nose. There was A LOT of blood.
Impact Wrestling says doctors told Edwards he's lucky his vision wasn't permanently impaired as a result of the injury. Check out the video below.
