WWE has added a new move to its list of banned-maneuvers.
According to a report from PW Insider, WWE Superstars are now not permitted to use turnbuckle bombs in their matches. These are moves where a performer is lifted up and thrown into the corner landing on the turnbuckle.
Sting’s career-ending injury took place when he took a turnbuckle powerbomb from Seth Rollins. Last month, Kairi Sane took a nasty-looking spill into the corner when a similar move was given by Nia Jax but resulted in Sane landing short of the turnbuckle.
WWE has banned several moves in the past. Some return while others do not. Piledrivers have been banned for some time, though some wrestlers have used the move sparingly including the Canadian Destroyer version in WWE. Rey Mysterio and Andrade used the move on Smackdown last year in a match.
Seth Rollins’ Curb Stomp was also banned for several months by WWE. Rollins has since been permitted to use the move again.
