In brief: Not likely

Severe high blood pressure may cause a bleed but usually that is not likely to happen due to excitement.

In brief: Blood pressure

If the excitement is strong enough to drive the blood pressure up, it can trigger a brain hemorrhage.
These include hypertensive hemorrhage and aneurysm rupture. Some street drugs can do the same.
