Published 4 Comments

The WWE now have a strong stance on chair shots to the head, with plenty of long-term injuries a worry and with concussion rates at an all-time high in the WWE, Val Venis has provided some insight on what a shot to the head could mean.

The former WWE superstar turned cannabis salesman shared a post on his Facebook page and said that the WWE were right in banning chair shots to the head, and those that are against it are putting their lives in jeopardy.


He was reflecting on one particular chair shot, a match in November 2005 against Triple H seemed to have changed his life despite taking many hits previously and hopes other companies follow suit and ban them for good.

“None caused me any grief or noticeable injuries. That said, it only takes one heavy blow to the head where you feel the lasting, annoying and extremely frustrating effects that will throw a monkey wrench into everything that defines you as a human being."

“I do not recall taking the Pedigree afterwards or even being back in the ring after said chair shot.”

We’ve seen what concussions can do to superstars, most recently Daniel Bryan was forced to retire because of concussions. Hopefully, other companies can follow.
