WWE bans slapping of the thighs and legs during kicks

According to a new report from FW4Online, WWE is said have instituted a new new policy to be “cracking down on wrestlers for slapping their thigh or leg when throwing kicks.” 

The report notes that there is a new sign outside the gorilla position and in the backstage area that reads “Do not slap leg when kicking.” 

It is being said Vince McMahon saw someone do a fairly obvious slap during an episode of Friday Night SmackDown and got upset, resulting in the new edict. A memo had been sent  NXT talent at one point, but that no one said a word about it since it was sent.

As of this report, it is unknown how WWE will enforce this new rule if is broken by talent.
