WWE Fining Wrestlers For “Thigh Slaps”

WWE Fining Wrestlers For “Thigh Slaps”

WWE is reportedly fining wrestlers for doing “thigh slaps” when throwing kicks.

It was reported in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that a story made the rounds saying WWE was fining wrestlers for “thigh slapping” when throwing kicks, a practice that goes back decades for added sound effects.

Company officials reportedly sent a memo to WWE NXT talents about doing the “thigh slaps” and no one has said a word about it since.

The “thigh slaps” or “leg slaps” in pro wrestling are often a hot topic on social media, often with trolls and other fans joking around. Randy Orton tweeted about the “thigh slaps” at NXT “Takeover: In Your House” last year and had words with Tommaso Ciampa over it, as noted at this link. WWE Hall of Famer and AEW announcer Jim Ross noted on a 2020 podcast that the “knee slaps” are embarrassing.

Stay tuned for more.
