that was a brutal chair shot
Somebody hitting you in the back of the head can kill you, now add a chair... Mr. Anderson is lucky that chair didn't hit right on the back of his head, less than a inch towards the right of the head, he would be hurt for many years.
Ewwww opening up his flesh.
Sorry if this sounds mean, but how was that an accident?
I don't follow, what do you mean?
That's okay )) Hitting someone in the head with a chair is frowned upon. There's a place a person is trained to hit when using a steel chair, especially to the back. Jeff isn't new so he ought to have been aware exactly how and where he hit Ken. Wrestlers are never trained to hit the back of the head with a chair
They are. It's allowed in TNA. It's not allowed in WWE mainly due to Benoit's death but it's unsafe, and rightfully so. Wrestlers shouldn't (imo) be taking chair shots to the head unless it's like once a year for a special occasion (Taker vs HHH for example). It was an accident because he hit him in a certain point in the head with a tough part of the chair, he didn't intentionally mean to hurt him. Chair shots to the head if done right don't hurt at all
Don't hurt at all is a stretch, especially to the back of the head it's going to hurt no matter how you do it.
Also didn't TNA ban head shots not long after the Hardy/Anderson incident?
IIRC they did for some period, but remember Jarrett vs. Hardy from Turning Point 2011 and that sick unprotected shot. It's toned down, yes, but still in use sometimes,
He donated his brain? So he now walks around without a brain?
Yeah it's a miracle!
Shots to the back of the head have never been taught, ever. When you give a 'head shot' its to the front, in which case you give a split second for the person to raise their hand to receive.
Shots to the back are completely unprotected and from my experience are frowned upon. There is a spot in the upper back where you take every chair shot. It's also the same spot wrestlers are taught to take their bumps.
The back of your head is the strongest part of the skull. Though I guess it is pretty rare to see. But I see your point. It was just a sharp bit of the chair that cut into the skin, not the impact itself.
