According to a report by PWInsider, WWE has now banned the “Buckle Bomb” (or Turnbuckle Powerbomb). The move was infamously used by Seth Rollins, who botched the move back in 2015 when Sting landed awkwardly in the turnbuckle a couple times, causing a severe neck injury that would force “The Stinger” into retirement.
The decision came after Nia Jax recently used the move on Kairi Sane and botched it, causing Kairi to get injured. You can see this spot in the video below.
