TNA star Mr. Anderson recently spoke with Fanhouse and the subject of unprotected chair shots came up. According to Ken TNA will no longer allow them, “TNA has absolutely thrown down the gauntlet and said no more unprotected chair shots, and every time there is a chair involved in the ring, the agents will come up and say please make sure for me that you are not going to … that you’re going to put your hand up. Please tell me you’re going to put your hand up or it’s going to be a back shot or something like that. The chair shot that I received from Jeff Hardy was not intended to hit the back of my head. I heard through the grapevine that there were some people who were concerned about that. That was an accident and, you know what, in our business, accidents are going to happen. Sometimes you’re going to get a boo-boo and things are going to hurt.”
Fans are sure to be divided on this development. With the recent medical findings on the long term effects of concussion this is a sound policy in my opinion.
