Blue Meanie says Cody should have put his hands up when Shawn Spears hit him with a chair
“I totally believe that chair was gimmicked but that still doesn’t excuse him not putting his hands up. But the wrestling business is a weird thing where you can say you’re gonna do something in the back and then you go out and you’re feeling it. Then you go, ‘Screw it. I’m not putting my hand up.’ Cody could have easily said I’m putting my hands up and then went out there and, ‘Nope.’ But do I think it should be happening in 2019? Probably not but every bump you take in the wrestling ring is equivalent to a minor fender bender. Chair shots are bad but bumps are just as bad. I’m not excusing either but you kinda know what you’re getting into. You can get a concussion from just taking a back bump; it sucks.”
