#5 Shawn Spears' chair shot led to a ban
As many wrestling fans may remember, Shawn Spears began his feud with Cody Rhodes when he hit him with a devastating chair shot at AEW Fyter Fest. As witnessed by those in attendance, as well as the viewers at home, Cody Rhodes dropped to the mat and bled out all over the canvas. This was an unprotected chair shot to the head and it was quite obvious that no blood was meant to be spilled.
Cody Rhodes spoke on this incident in detail during his interview.
"The lip got me.The lip of the chair. And Tony put out a statement properly as he did. We went to great pains to "take back" chair shots by soldering and ironing out the proper way to do it....and we just didn't get all of it."
Cody Rhodes said that he wanted to take chair shots back for wrestling, but it didn't work out as he had hoped. He also said that it was most likely the last head shot in AEW. This was a wise decision, as chair shots are simply too dangerous.
