Vince McMahon apparently doesn’t want to see any more leg slapping. A memo was sent to NXT saying that the practice needs to stop. The main roster is on notice as well.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that there is a sign backstage at the ThunderDome warning Superstars about Vince McMahon’s new rule.
“Tonight, just as an example, right outside of the Gorilla Position tonight and on RAW as well there’s a little sign that says: ‘do not slap leg when kicking.’ So that’s the instructions for the main roster. I don’t know if they’re gonna fine people, but they absolutely have a warning.”
It was noted that people like Jey Uso are great workers, but they are now limited. It’s unclear what the final straw was that broke the camel’s back in this situation. Vince McMahon apparently saw one too many leg slaps before sending down word that he doesn’t want to see it again.
