— Both Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan have been fined “an undisclosed amount” following a chairshot to the head during their Street Fight match on this past Monday’s RAW. The particular spot saw Orton holding up a chair in an attempt to block Bryan’s suicide dive through the ropes.
The WWE story features a quote from WWE Executive/Superstar Triple H, saying, “We don’t allow chair shots to the head in WWE. We understand it was in the heat of the moment but we take this very seriously and as a result, Orton and Bryan were fined.”
Orton also reacts to the fine amount saying, “Trust me, it was enough.”
WWE released a statement in 2011 relating to chair shots being used by superstars;
“Pursuant to WWE’s Concussion policy, the stunt of using a folded metal chair shot to the head is prohibited. Triple H and The Undertaker have both been fined for violating this policy at WrestleMania XXVII. WWE penalizes through fine and/or suspension for violation of this policy, which is unchanged and still in effect.”
