All Elite Wrestling company criticised for extremely dangerous wrestling move
Wrestler Cody Rhodes took a genuine chair shot to the head on Saturday night.
"Wrestling is fake". Three words we can guarantee you have either said or heard at some point in your life, when the subject of professional wrestling comes up.
And yes, we all know that the outcome of each match is predetermined, and the guys and gals in the ring aren't actually punching the heads off each other, but when you see something like this, you have to take a step back and question whether or not you still want to consider it "fake".
WWE's main rivals, All Elite Wrestling, hosted their Fyter Fest show on Saturday night, and well-known wrestler Cody Rhodes took an absolute wallop of a chair shot to the head.
It's not an easy watch at all, but a clip of the incident can be seen here:

Rhodes allegedly does not have a concussion, but AEW was still criticised for allowing such a dangerous maneuver to take place in 2019.
The company took to Twitter to post an update on Rhodes' situation, claiming that he had received 12 staples, and no concussion.
