Encyclopedia of
Pro Wrestling 
A wrestler may not punch an opponent with a closed fist nor kick an opponent with the toe of their boot. Biting is not allowed, nor isspitting in the eyes. When wrestlers do this, however,they usually get away with it with just an admonishment from the referee.Wrestlers may lift an opponent and throw them, drop them, or otherwise force them to the mat.Such techniques which land an opponent on the head or neck, such as thepiledriver, may bedisallowed by some promotions.A wrestler may jump onto an opponent, whether standing or lying down, in any manner,including with a clenched fist (à laJerry Lawler's diving fist) or the toe of a boot (à laRandyOrton's punt attack).Any legal wrestler is open to attack from any direction at any time, including when they aredowned, as long as they are within the ring area enclosed by the ring ropes. They may also besubject to attack if they are completely outside the ring, as long asno part of their body istouching, or directly underneath, a ring rope. If any part of either wrestler is in contact with theropes or has otherwise broken the plane of ropes all grappling contact between the wrestlers mustbe broken within a five count or else the attacking wrestler may be subject to disqualification.This rule is often used strategically in order to escape from asubmission hold, and a wrestler canbreak theplane of the ropes by placing his foot or other body part on (or under) the ropes toavoid losing by pinfall. This is commonly referred to as arope break.
