Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterThere's a feeling among at least one top star in WWE that the increase in eye poke injuries is because WWE has been pushing talents to be more aggressive in the ring.
This has led to people rushing their work, which leads to sloppiness in the ring and more eye pokes, potato shots, black eyes, concussions and things like separated shoulders.
Talents are also working with the idea of barely missing on strikes. The idea is to throw strikes really hard and fast but just miss, which has led to an increase in injures.
