When a Competitor Falls from the Ring

(1) A competitor who has been wrestled, pushed, or has fallen through the ropes during a bout may be helped back into the ring by any person, and the referee shall allow a reasonable time for the competitor to return. Once on the ring apron outside the ropes, the competitor shall enter the ring immediately, and may either resume the bout or take a count:
(a) If the competitor takes a count, the count shall be started by the referee as soon as the fallen competitor re-enters the ring;
(b) Should the competitor stall for time outside the ropes, the referee shall start the count without waiting for the competitor to re-enter the ring.
(2) When a competitor has fallen through the ropes, the competitor’s opponent shall retire to the farthest neutral corner of the ring and stay there until ordered to continue the bout by the referee.
(3) A competitor may be penalized for deliberately wrestling or throwing an opponent from the ring or striking a blow when the opponent is partially out of the ring and prevented by the ropes from assuming a position of defense.
