The following is an MAJOR announcement from Lila Sleater with the full backing of the Board of Directors:
Anybody who watched SuperBrawl X noticed a disturbing trend: the use of lethal weapons. Ryan "Needles" Payne tried to stab Billy Broom with a knife. Anna Ahriman hacked away at Mesh with a sword. The goal in a WFWF match is to beat your opponent. It is NOT to kill them. Dead wrestlers don't come back for more matches at later shows. The use of knives and swords goes against this principle.
We understand that weapons will be involved in hardcore matches. The use of foreign objects is not something new to the WFWF or professional wrestling in general but there is a line. The use of potentially lethal bladed weapons crosses the line from professional wrestling into murder porn.
Following the events at SuperBrawl, the WFWF can not and will not condone the use of bladed weapons in any match, no matter the match stipulation or willingness of participants to actively try to kill each other. From this moment on, any wrestler who attempts to use a bladed weapon like a knife or a sword in a match will face immediate disciplinary action including fines, suspension, or firing.
It shouldn't need stating that other lethal weapons are equally banned so keep your fantasies about bringing a gun to the ring to yourself.
As always, whatever weapons you can find laying around the ring are acceptable in stipulation matches, including but not limited to chairs, tables, ladders, and blunt weapons. We'll even allow thumb tacks and barbwire. Hopefully that is enough toys to satisfy your bloodlust without getting the WFWF banned from all forms of media.
FYI - This is not a storyline. This is a new policy discussed and agreed upon by the owners. Please take note and adjust your future match writing accordingly.
