TOP 10 RECENT RULES WWE WRESTLERS HAVE TO FOLLOW IN 2018
10. WOMEN ARE NOT ALLOWED TO
HAVE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS
We all know how awkward an
office romance can be,
especially if you break up,
and then have to see your ex
from 9 till 5 every day.
But in WWE, female talent are banned
with having personal relationship
with any officials,
to avoid any accusations of
While Superstars are allowed to
date other superstars,
there can be no flings with behind
the scenes talent,
regardless of how they may feel.
According to a leaked report
the creative team is not even
supposed to be friends with
because it will make them biased
when it comes to creating storylines
for certain stars in the company.
It does seem very controlling that
the company is able to say
who you can be friends with,
I guess it makes sense in an industry
where backstage news is leaked
The last know relationship between
an official and a diva
came when Rosa Mendes split with
long-term producer Michael Hayes.
9. NO ATTENDING OTHER WRESTLING
SHOWS WITHOUT PERMISSION
This one makes sense. When you sign
with WWE, you sign your image
over to them.
So if you show up on Impact,
Ring of Honour or any other promotion,
all it does is add viewers to that show.
A situation just like this happened in
2016 at a WWC show,
where Paige showed up,
and proposed to then-boyfriend
Alberto Del Rio.
Not the only issue WWE had with
the anti-diva at the time,
many fans believed that she would
be quickly released,
which thankfully didn’t happen.
Unfortunately, Robbie McAllister of
the Highlanders wasn’t so lucky,
with the Scottish Superstar being
spotted at TNA in 2008,
despite being signed with WWE at
Not being as huge star like Paige,
Robbie was quickly ordered to leave
by a WWE rep,
and was fined his 5-grand
WrestleMania pay check.
If losing money wasn’t enough,
McAllister was quickly released in
August that year,
alongside partner Rory, an innocent
victim in this badly judged appearance.
8. Women need to ask permission
to have tattoos
Another rule that came to light
thanks to Paige,
the WWE have a very strong opinion
on their female roster
getting any tattoos on their body.
Appearing on Total Divas,
the British Superstar showed her
idea for a chest tattoo,
which caused her to get in hot water
with the company, both on and
Things were made worse when Paige
decided against the tat,
instead opting for some ink on her
hands, a far less noticeable choice,
but one that still got her in trouble,
as she got it without the company’s
Paige isn’t the only UK star to get in
trouble for this however,
as former UK Champion Tyler Bate
debuted a hand tattoo in 2017,
which reportedly left him in hot
water with WWE officials.
With WWE owning your image,
it pays to think, before you ink.
7. WWE Stars are not allowed to
show any cuts
There was a time where the WWE
was well-known for it’s excessive
use of blood,
with many top champions being
left in a pool after main events.
But in July 2008, the company
shifted to becoming a PG show,
with blading being banned from
with any blood being seen
on programming since
with screens going to black-and-
white if they bleed in front
of the camera.
According to leaked documents,
Superstars are now being fined
if they deliberately blade,
with former World Champion
turned Marvel star
Batista being fine 100,000
dollars after blading
in a 2008 Cage Match against
Chris Jericho on RAW.
While some say it’s ruined a
crucial part of wrestling ,
I definitely agree with the rule,
with the risk of Hepatitis being
a constant threat when blading,
and NXT Commentator Nigel
McGuiness being forced to
retire because of it.
Also, now when we do see
it can really elevate a match,
knowing that this was
6. Superstars are not allowed
to cut promos without permission
We all know that Vince McMahon
is a bit of control freak,
who according to rumours
even hates sneezing,
because it shows a lack on
But according to a leaked
that surfaced online states
that no superstar can cut any
promo without permission
from the company.
Of course, there are certain
stars who are above this rule,
most notably established talkers
like The Rock and John Cena,
who have entertained millions
for decades with their mic skills.
That doesn’t mean that both men
haven’t gotten in trouble despite
with the Brahma Bull getting into
bother after calling CM Punk
in February 2017,
three years after the best
in the world
waked away from WWE.
While Rocky did get in trouble,
he still remains one of a select
few who are able to cut promos
without the company’s blessing,
though it’s harsh that there are
rules for some stars
and not for others.
5. No High-Fiving fans on the way
to the ring on televised shows
One of the newest rules on this list,
this mandate was revealed just
saying WWE Superstars cannot
high five fans on TV.
The belief is that it takes up far
too much time on screen,
when every second counts in
building superstars and hype
to the next pay per view.
Interestingly, the only Superstar
who is allowed to high-five
is Ronda Rousey,
who no doubt is getting over as
seemingly the only Superstar
wanting to interact with the fans.
Although I realise how precious
each second can be,
I do think Superstars should be
able to high-five, as the simple
could mean so much to fans
both new and old,
who will be able to have a
genuine, albeit brief,
connection to their favourite
The new rule has not changed
how many fans at ringside
hold out their hands,
hoping, sadly in vain, for that
4. The Women of WWE have
a strict dress code
Another rule for the women
that the men don’t have to follow,
the ladies have a strict code to
always look their best when
on the road.
According to reports,
women are forced to wear a dress
and heels when travelling to arenas,
in the company’s efforts
to make sure fans see them as
the glamorous confident women
they appear as on Total Divas.
It makes sense that WWE would
want their Superstars to look
with only a few notable exceptions
dressing in their own style,
most famously Mankind,
who wouldn’t be caught dead
appearing in a suit and tie backstage.
But this rule about dresses does
very controlling mandate by the
who expect paparazzi to follow
their female talent around
every corner, at all times .
3. WWE Stars need permission
to undergo medical procedures
As part of their contracts,
the WWE will pay for surgery
if a Superstars have injuries that
affect their in-ring performance.
It’s a very positive rule,
with medical costs for athletes
in the United States
often running into the hundreds
However, for a superstar to get a
much needed surgery,
they have to plea their case
to the company,
with Paige, once again,
being in the company’s bad
books for this.
Even though the former
doctor said she needed surgery,
the company refused,
as their own physicians said
it wasn’t needed.
Getting the surgery anyway,
Paige was out for almost a year,
returning briefly before announcing
her retirement in April this year.
Now rocking as SmackDown
Live General Manager,
it’s a scary thought of how much
worse her life could’ve been
if she’d not gone for the surgery,
and gotten even more hurt in a
match on the company’s watch.
2.WOMEN MUST NOT POST
ANYTHING ONLINE WITHOUT
This is a huge thing for WWE,
who despite the rule,
still expect their women to
showcase a lot of their lives
on Facebook, Twitter and
Following a series of
the company made it clear that
that no woman on their roster
can post anything without
to make sure everything follows
their family-friendly edict.
Most famously, NXT star Zahra
Schreiber was released in 2015,
for what the company said
and offensive remarks.”
Those remarks included photos
of Swastikas on her social media,
and even though they were deleted,
the damage had been done.
While it may seem as another
controlling effort by WWE,
it makes sense that even online,
a Superstar represents the company,
though you would think that the
company would be just
wary of men damaging their
1.WWE have an input on who
their women can date
In what is a worrying trend,
we have another rule exclusively
for the women of the WWE.
In a HIGHLY unethical trend, the
company does have an input
on who their female talent can
date and be seen with,
with potential punishments
and even being released.
Once again, Paige found herself
in breach of WWE’s rule,
with the company reportedly
to split from Alberto Del Rio in 2016,
which she eventually did, but
for personal reasons.
Even though WWE shouldn’t
have any say
in who their employees date,
never mind the fact that the
men are exempt from this rule,
this treatment has sadly become
an unwritten rule
that all women have to consider,
regardless of the genuine
feelings they may feel.
