Oh, Chair Shots Are OK — Just Not to the Head

Published March 30th, 2010, Uncategorized

Regarding the previous post, a helpful fan points out to your humble blogger, “WWE policy only bans chair shots to the head.  I think Hart diligently avoided hits to the head.”

Well, you got me there. I can see the steam emitting from the nostrils of Jerry S. McDevitt, Esq. Sorry.

Of course, Vince McMahon told CNN in 2007 that chair shots to the head had been banned, but the chairman’s words didn’t seem to get codified in iron-clad company “policy” until January of this year. Maybe in the interim wrestlers were diligently trying, but failing, to land solid soap-opera blows to the back.
