WWE Reportedly Pushing Talents To Be More Aggressive In Matches, Increase In Injuries

There’s a feeling among at least one top star in WWE that the increase in eye poke injuries is because WWE has been pushing talents to be more aggressive in the ring.

This has led to people rushing their work, which leads to sloppiness in the ring and more eye pokes, potato shots, black eyes, concussions and things like separated shoulders.

Talents are also working with the idea of barely missing on strikes. The idea is to throw strikes really hard and fast but just miss, which has led to an increase in injures.

    i would’ve preferred to see more fluidity and freestyle in the ring like in NXT instead of having the matches feel ‘scripted’

  • Bryan

    Stay aggressive. We need it in this soft ass day and age

  • FlawlessRKO

    From a storyline perspective, I feel Randy needs to be 3x more aggressive than he already is and show no mercy to anyone who steps in that ring.

    • Jonathan Baylor

      The authority helps him out in everything he does. That’s not right.

      • FlawlessRKO

        I’d rather have Randy as a solo heel than working with/for someone else.

  • Benjamin Mason

    go back to ruthless agression

  • jmull

    I love the style, but I would rather not have the top guys consistently injured.
