Hair vs Hair matches?

I wondered last night as to why they never do them anymore, I think that it would be a pretty good stipulation to one of the womens matches at clash of champions, winner gets the title, loser gets their headshaved bald, it blows my mind how its been years since this last happened, I believe the last match where something like this was wagered was Mysterio vs Punk in a mask vs hair match

Bálor vs. Corbin last year not being a Hair vs. Hair Match is still a head-scratcher.

Probably because nobody wants to shave their head?

Corbin would be the only one in recent memory it could have worked for, considering he shaved his head on his own.

Dude selling point of divas is their looks, and losing hair would make them less attractive, or even unattractive to most people, why would they wanna ruin someone like that?

That never stopped them before. Heck, even Vince got his head shaved when there was enough $ to be made from doing it.

Was a match I was never big on so I'm glad they don't happen anymore.

Pretty sure nobody forced Vince to shave his head. Everything is on social media these days, one wrestler bitching about being forced to shave his head by his employer and the snowflakes would be all over it condemning WWE.

Re: Hair vs Hair matches?

WWE doesn't do Hair matches just for the hell of it. There's usually always an underlying reason behind hair matches. In most cases, the person getting their hair cut off actually wants their hair to be cut off due to personal reasons. Since they can't simply cut their hair off due to contractual obligations, they instead get the creative team to make a storyline out of it.

For example:

Kurt Angle wanted to go bald as he was already losing hair by his hairline.

Kevin Nash had a movie role that required him to cut his hair short.

Molly Holly wanted to go bald for storyline purposes and begged the idea to creative.

Eric Bishoff was tired of dying his hair black every week so he pitched the idea to cut his hair short.

CM Punk's hairline was receding and he was getting tired of having long hair.

Vince McMahon wanted to advance the Bobby Lashley vs Umaga match at WrestleMania 23.

There's always some personal motive for Hair matches. The lack of hair matches currently is probably because nobody wants to cut their hair.

Re: Hair vs Hair matches?

ATM ignore Corbin although it would make sense, hair v hair matches always have a personal reason so they could do a hair v hair match with Naomi being the one losing. she's stated numerous times she wants the change but is hardly used now.

You need to be yourself, you can't be no-one else.

Re: Hair vs Hair matches?

these matches were usually done because of some purpose.

eg angle likely had his shaved because he wanted it cut off anyway. Nash had his cut off because he was doing the punisher movie.

basically they mostly only seemed to happen because of some backstage reason or the wrestler specifically asking for it. Not purely for story. They did them to make money out of something that would happen anyway and possibly even make some money off of it.
