    Default Name some rarely mentioned Kayfabe WWE rules.

    I will start. Remember when the Champion had to defend his belt every 30 days or he would be stripped of the belt?

    Now you go.....

    You got until the count of 5 to break an illegal hold, or else you're disquallified.

    Are you allowed to punch with a closed fist?

    Anyone ever notice that the ref always starts yelling at a guy when he climbs to the top of the turnbuckle? Apparently it must be against the rules.

    That's honestly the only one I can think of. Didn't there used to be a rule in the 90's where you couldn't hold more than one belt at a time? You could compete for a second title but if you won it, you had to forfeit your old one. That tied into Warrior giving up the IC belt after defeating Hogan, and didn't HBK forfeit the IC belt because he and Diesel were tag champs, or vice versa? My memory is fuzzy.

    What was the video game one with Bischoff...about title defenses not being allowed to happen in a steel cage in the month of October or something like that?

    Closed fist punches are illegal.

    Only time I ever remember it being enforced was during a Dudley Boyz match with Flair as the special guest ref. Naitch DQ'ed 'em for using closed fists.

    Pretty sure they got rid of the closed fist rule a few years ago now.

    According to Jimmy Kordeas a former referee he says the rule is still there, but not enforced heavily.

    Adding to the thread the 15 minute time limit. Can't remember the last time seeing that.

    Apparently it's within the rules that if you're eliminated from the Royal Rumble, that you can reenter the match and eliminate a participant. Somehow, it's okay in kayfabe, but that makes no sense at all. What if that eliminated person eliminated everyone left? Would nobody win the Rumble?

    No, the last person he eliminated, really wouldn't count as an elimiantion because they would be the last person left & the winner of the Royal Rumble.

    I think technically climbing the turnbuckle is going out of bounds, so there's a 10 count.

    Is it a disqualifiable offense to use a weapon other than a steel chair in a chairs match?

    You must hold onto the white rope attached to the turnbuckle in order to be tagged during a tag match. Most wrestlers abide by this but referees never bring it up if somebody does not.

    The outside of the ring ten count is only enforced if required. Sometimes the ten count won't start for ten seconds.

    Having your foot UNDER the rope leads to a pin rope break. Not always enforced.

    The winner of the Royal Rumble gets to Main Event Wrestlemania. Sometimes, his main event will be the first match on the card (see Sheamus 2012)

    Well, we know that low blows cause a disqualification from the first Chairs Match, Batista vs. Taker.

    It's always amused me that you can't get disqualified in a Triple Threat or Fatal Four-Way match.

    Oh it makes sense, I don't dispute that. It's never alluded to though, and wrestlers very rarely take advantage of it. In fact, I swear I've seen some ref bumps in Triple Threat matches over the years.

    If you use a foreign object, you get disqualified, but apparantly, if you use the same weapon on your opponent outside of the ring, its okay.

    ^Similar to that

    Putting your opponent through the announce table is allowed, but putting him through one the tables under the ring is illegal.

    Surely if one wrestler performed a disqualifiable offense you could just eliminate him from the match?

    Suppose it's not an elimination match. Do you give the win to the guy who got disqualified? What about the guy who didn't do anything, does he just get fucked over?

    Wouldn't it just become a one on one match? The guy who committed the disqualification did something stupid and thus gets kicked out.

    I meant eliminate him even if it is a one-fall-to-a-finish triple threat match. As Oncall said.

    What about the sleeper rule that always seems to change depending on the superstar? Like if, for example, a big guy has a bear hug for a finisher, if he is going against a mid-carder or jobber, if the arm drops once, the match is over. But if he goes against someone like Cena or HHH, their arm has to drop three times and sometimes the ref will give them a 4th chance. Makes no sense.
