WWE banned the buckle bomb after way too many injuries. Hurricane Helms did a move for years that was much more dangerous, but he never hurt anyone.

The Hurricane heard the news that WWE banned powerbombs into the turnbuckle. Since his Vertebreaker never hurt anyone, he made a point that it’s about how the move is done and not the actual maneuver.

I did the Vertebreaker, arguably the most dangerous move in the business and never hurt anyone.

It’s not the move, it’s the execution.


You never know if someone might get special permission to do the buckle bomb eventually. Don’t get your hopes up about seeing it again for a very long time.
