2. Randy Orton’s Punt:-Remember that “Punt Move” which he used on Mcmahon’s family. Randy used to kick wrestlers in the head and put them out for a long ago. The move is even more dangerous than RKO and used to be Randy’s deadly move. Randy’s punt move was considered as match finisher. WWE decided  it probably wasn’t a good idea as they were promoting one of their top stars deliberately giving other wrestlers head injuries. It was increasing the awareness of the dangers of concussions.  After a short span of time, WWE decided to stop it and banned this move. Thus, we have added this move to list of Top 5 WWE banned moves.
