World Wrestling Entertainment has opted to remove powerbombs into the turnbuckles aka bucklebombs from the list of authorized moves used by talents during in-ring performances, has confirmed with multiple sources.

The move led to the retirement of WWE Hall of Famer Sting after he was hit with the move by Seth Rollins several years ago after the brunt of the move led to injury and the discovery that Sting was suffering from spinal stenosis.  Several weeks ago, Kairi Sane took a scary bump into the buckles while wrestling Nia Jax as well.

While the move is no longer allowed, there have been other moves that were eliminated only to return later on, including the shooting star press and Seth Rollins' signature stomp.  There are other moves, including the piledriver, that have been and remain banned from usage in the ring.
