WWE were forced to cut the chord on these extremely dangerous moves.
Each one of them have a finisher banned
WWE has started taking the health and well being of their superstars very seriously, albeit it was only after a spate of horrific injuries suffered by many former and present wrestlers.
In their quest to make wrestling safe for their superstars, WWE has taken considerable measures. Starting from strictly enforcing the wellness policy to reducing blows to the head and finally banning some moves which were deemed too dangerous for the superstars to put their lives and careers on the risk for, WWE has put the health of their superstars on the front.
However, many current and formers WWE Superstars have had to change/modify/or completely give up on their finishers due to their moves being banned by the WWE for being too dangerous.
Here are 5 WWE superstars whose finishers have been banned by the WWE:
#5 Samoa Joe – Muscle busterSadly, this was banned too late
Before the Coquina Clutch, the Samoan Submission Machine used the ‘Muscle buster’ to crush his opponents and many big names including AJ Styles and Kurt Angle have been on the receiving end of this brutal finisher.
The Samoan’s finisher ‘Muscle buster’ was earlier allowed by the WWE and may still have been in play, if not for the horrific and career-ending injuries suffered by Tyson Kidd during a dark match with Joe, during which the Samoan botched the finisher.
It is a pity that the move was banned only after the injuries sustained by Kidd and not before.
Here is the video of Samoa Joe successfully executing his finisher on Finn Balor:
