WWE have a list of main roster wrestlers that are allowed to have haircuts

WWE have a list of main rosters that are allowed to have haircuts backstage before going on TV, according to reports.

Edge made headlines on the most recent edition of Raw when he appeared without his signature locks. The former World Heavyweight Champion had shaved down his sides.

As the leader of the new Judgment Day stable, his look was perhaps changed to symbolise further the departure from his previous ‘Rated R Superstar’ character.

Some WWE fans even compared it to the hairstyle of new Judgment Day member Rhea Ripley.

It is not uncommon for stars to change their look when adopting different personas or upon making a return to the company. For instance, Brock Lesnar came back to WWE last year at SummerSlam with his hair tied back.

The Undertaker, meanwhile, shaved his head entirely for his WrestleMania match against Lesnar in 2014.

WWE has a list of wrestlers that can get haircuts

According to a report from Fightful Select (as per WrestlingNews), a number of WWE stars on both main roster brands are permitted to get haircuts before they appear on TV.

However, it is noticeable that several big names are missing. The current United States Champion Theory is not on the list. Nor are Montez Ford, Chad Gable or Ezekiel.

The report states that these Superstars are allowed to receive haircuts backstage at TV tapings, but it is unclear what the rules are for those not on the list.

Ricochet and Bobby Lashley, however, are on the list. Lashley has had a shaved head ever since the beginning of his first run in WWE, whilst Ricochet also has his head shaved.
