Introduction: There's been a lot of statements going around today about the Buckle Bomb and I wanted to write out why I think people are getting real confused over which is which. From /r/SC "As much of a Rollins fan that I am, I think it's time to retire the buckle bomb. They get rid of the curb stomp, but this one is still around. Come on." From Lance Storm "when your moves have a high risk but the risk is on YOU, I don't mind it as much...but when you're throwing guys backwards, the risk isn't on you, it's on him.." And from Bret Hart "I take no great pleasure in saying “I told you so,” but if you’re a professional wrestler and you keep hurting opponents and or yourself, clearly you’re doing it wrong. I wrestled a very realistic and physical style and not once in 23 yrs did I ever hurt one opponent ever. Seth Rollins needs to improve his technique and become the safest wrestler in the business. I have great respect for Seth. I believe he’ll improve and hopefully stop hurting the talent before someone gets killed." Is Seth Rollins Reckless? There could easily be an argument for Seth Rollins being reckless, I'll be honest about that but Bret Hart is pointing fingers. Seth Rollins has fucked up, I'll give you the Cena injury and the Balor injury but Sting is hardly a young guy in his prime and I do not think the blame lies on Rollins or Sting for that incident and I believe it to be a result of wrestling full time for 20+ years. Rollins obviously needs to tone it down a little but Bret is ridiculous in saying that "before someone gets killed" and in the same interview he went on to complain about Samoa Joe using the muscle buster after the Tyson Kidd injury despite Joe's track record with the move and I'll make the same argument for Rollins a minute. Track Record How many times has Seth Rollins performed a standard Buckle Bomb? Countless but if I were to count it would be in the high hundreds. How many people have been injured from a standard Buckle Bomb? ONE. Sting who again has been wrestling for THIRTY YEARS, most of that full time with promotions such as TNA and WCW. Sting is hardly a young man and its hardly shocking a man with back and neck issues got injured. I am not going to place blame for this injury. Now looking at many other workers, Styles Clash has injured 2 People since he left TNA. Lionheart and Rodrick Strong, his track record speaks for itself and its not banned. Samoa Joe with the Muscle Buster, Tyson Kidd suffered a career threatening injury and we don't know if he'll ever come back and he still uses it because his track record again speaks for itself. 1 Injury to Sting is not worthy of banned a move that is performed so frequently with no issues. Now we move to the biggest talking point: The Barricade Bomb. The Barricade Bomb The Barricade Bomb should stop. No doubt about it, not because of the one injury but because its just a silly move that is very awkward to take and can end badly as we saw on Sunday but this should not affect a normal buckle bomb because they are completely different moves. A lot of people seem to batch them together when they just aren't similar at all, the landing on the buckle bomb is simple yet the barricade is a much different beast. The videos above show that pretty clearly. One major difference is that in a Buckle Bomb you can land on your feet and on a Barricade bomb your landing is much more awkward. The only person I've seen get these things accurately is Lance Storm, his quote is great and very honest and I agree with him on the barricade bomb. In conclusion the barricade bomb needs to stop being used, the buckle bomb would be silly to ban, Seth Rollins should work on the safety concerns if they are genuine backstage, Bret Hart needs to stop talking about current wrestling and we all need to stop batching the buckle and barricade bombs together.
