A topic of discussion among wrestling fans has for years been similarities between AJ Styles’ Styles Clash finish and Michelle McCool’s Faithbreaker finish. Styles and McCool both appeared on WWE’s The Bump earlier today and were asked about the moves.
Host Kayla Braxton noticed how subtle differences there were between the movements, and Styles agreed. He then explained how he sees the two finishers.
“There is, and I will point it out, right for you,” Styles replied at Braxton. “So I think hair is more of a ‘fall’ and mine a ‘jump up’, and sometimes she grabs at their waist, and I always grab at the legs. So there is a small difference in the way we do it. ”
“Yes,” McCool replied.
Braxton then added that both finishers are devastating, and the Superstars agreed.
“There you go,” McCool added.
McCool will return to the ring for Saturday’s 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match, while Styles will compete in the 30-Man Rumble.
