In January 2010, WWE banned chair shots to the head in an attempt to reduce concussions suffered in the ring. Prior to the ban, some wrestlers would agree to give each other stiff chair shots to the head in an attempt to add realism to their matches. This video shows some of the most vicious, concussion-inducing chair shots in WWE history.
“In January 2010, WWE amended its Talent Wellness Program, specifically regarding the ImPACTâ„¢ Concussion Management Program originally instituted in 2008, eliminating the use of folding chairs or props to “strike” an opponent in the head. Prior to this policy change, The Tables, Ladders and Chairs event in question took place on December 13, 2009. “Incidentally, no performer suffered a concussion during the TLC event.”
