Brock Lesnar — NINE STAPLES IN HEAD … After Bloody Brawl

WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar took nine staples to the head following his bloody Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker … and the photos look painful.

Lesnar battled the Dead Man Sunday night at, appropriately enough, The Staples Center in Los Angeles — and it wasn’t long before his head was busted open during the brawl.

Brock Lesnar was the victor, but his head took another beating after the match … when he received nine freaking staples in his head to close the wound.

Unclear if Brock will appear on RAW tonight following his win — but based on the pics, the 38 year-old took his head staples like only a true beast can.  So we’re guessing it won’t put him out of action.
