View Full Version : No more Package Piledriver?

02-09-2012, 04:05 PM
As the the title says as of the 4th February 2012, ROH has banned ever type of Piledriver. My question to ye real or storyline?

I hope it's just a storyline because I love that move. No piledriver is any more dangerous than any other move. I have seen just as many people injured from a shooting star press as a piledriver.

Probably just story line so Steen has a another move with the same amount of ....impact .., but yeah I think its just to further the story line.

probably to do with kayfabe banning head chair shots as well...

True but there still happening i think it might be done to get even more heat from Cornette continually hitting despite it being banned.

It's just Cornette doing anything he can to stop Steen. It's also giving Steen a secondary finisher, the TKO, time to get over. I reckon Steen will still use the PP, but less frequently for a while, thenm he'll faze it back in

It for storyline purposes in the Cornette/Steen feud.....

Looks like it will be the F5 going forward!!

Haven't been following, but I'd imagine it's storyline.

IRL, the Package Piledriver actually looks pretty safe for a 'driver though, the neck's pretty well protected. A lot safer than, say, the Jay Driller or the Rubix Cube (does Hero even still use that?(+ I know it's not a piledriver))
