    It makes more sense when you remember that you can make Melee Weapon Attacks with things that aren’t Melee Weapons (the butt of a crossbow, for example). “Weapon Attack” pretty much means an attack that is not a Spell Attack; a boot to the head is clearly not a Spell Attack, therefore it’s a Weapon Attack.

      Also, if you look at the Monster Manual entry for most beasts, their natural stuff such as clawing and biting are considered melee weapon attacks despite clearly not using a manufactured weapon, as do things like slam attacks.
