The WWE have finally given in to calls to introduce video technology to punish those seen breaking rules with illegal moves or weapons.
For years fans and sports analysts had campaigned for the measures after it was revealed a shocking 98% of all fights where ended with some kind of rulebook transgression.
Former President George Bush Jr was so incensed after one fight he cancelled peace-keeping talks with Israel and Palestine to protest personally to former WWE chief Vince McMahon.
Bosses have now insisted that any fight ended by steel chairs, another wrestler appearing from under the ring or any other manner of underhand shenanigans employed while the referee is temporarily distracted or knocked-out will be declared null and void and the contest will be replayed until there is a fair winner.
Some purists such as Randy "Macho man" Savage have criticised the ruling, insisting that "seeing an athlete bashed on the cranium with titanium represented everything that was good about the beautiful sport".
But most have agreed the new strictures were way overdue. "It's about time they were introduced" said one loyal fan "the old system was making the sport of overgrown men in lycra simulating combat a laughing stock".
