It's safe to say that we’ve seen some weird rulings laid down in WWE over the years.
Case in point, back at the turn of 1988, the company implemented a rule that outlawed Irish whips into the guardrail. And what’s worth noting is that the ban appeared to apply to Irish whips and Irish whips alone. So, hanging your opponent neck-first on the guardrail? Fine. Bashing their face over that very same railing? Great, go for it! But Irish Whipping your opponent into it? Apparently, that’s just a step too far.
That ruling has obviously since been reneged on, but there remain some fairly stickling laws in the company and many of them are accompanied by a fine of some sort.
Some may seem a tad unreasonable, others a little more understandable. Either way, these penalties are all taken rather seriously by the company hierarchy and cover all sorts of misdemeanours of varying severities, from fashion faux pas to excessive violence, right through to restrictions on fan interactions.
Here, we round up some of these fineable offences as well as instances of the punishments in action.
