Only Samoans should be allowed to do them.

Re: What Are Your Views On Headbutts In General?

Real headbutts are obviously something that shouldn't be done anymore, given how much we know on the dangers of what could happen with them. Nobody should be doing shoot headbutts anymore, no matter who you are.

I'm fine with a fake headbutt, and they can be done well. I know Gallagher does one well, and Tomohiro Ishii in New Japan does a very good one as well that is safe. They can fit into a match really well when done correctly.

They make me cringe just like unprotected chair shots to the head. All you can do is hope they're done smartly.

Safe and kayfabe headbutts are fine but stiff head buts are stupid. They aren't ballsy or a credit to the locker room, they are stupid and they endorse many potential injuries.

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Yeah, Gallagher's headbutt is pretty dope. Still think it's pretty risky but it's probably one of the best ways to do it.


D'you suppose they listen to me when I tell'em so, when I pointed out the consequences, when I recommend 'em to read Coryphaeus? No, Mrs. Ambrose, you will form no just opinion of the stupidity of mankind until you have sat upon a Borough Council!

Re: What Are Your Views On Headbutts In General?

Given what we are learning about head injuries, concussions, and CTE unprotected head butts should be banned. But safe, protected, worked headbutts I'm fine with. They have all those ""Do NOT try this at home" warnings for a reason.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

A stupid move, IMO.
