This is a rather unfortunate occurrence because WrestleMania should be a time where people at the top of their game can execute their craft to the best of their ability. Sometimes that involves throwing in a risky move you don’t see very often like a piledriver. But the Louisiana Boxing and Wresling Commission has not only banned piledrivers from pro wrestling events but also blood.
Therefore, if there is blood during a match this WrestleMania weekend, it will likely be a huge accident. Also, WWE will certainly act accordingly with ringside medics taking care of the situation and try to save a match from being canceled. But this also applies to all indie events as well.
Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he didn’t expect a Tombstone from The Undertaker to stop a match and if his contest against John Cena takes place then it might have two or three of them in it. But a lot of other indie talents might be a bit stifled. But the council is having a special meeting on March 7th to see whether the Canadian Destroyer fits into the category of a piledriver.
But still, there will be no blood unless it’s real and that could mean a match stoppage until it’s controlled or possibly even canceled altogether.
