According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s been talk within WWE whether or not AJ Styles should be allowed to use the Styles Clash.
Vince McMahon reportedly found out that Yoshi Tatsu suffered a broken neck from the move in Japan and wanted to be careful in regard to using the move. This lead to the WWE wanting the Calf Crusher to be AJ’s offical finisher.
However Chris Jericho wanted the Styles Clash move in their WWE Fastlane match for crowd reaction. They ended up executing the move with no issues coming from it, so reportedly the move is now okay to be used. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter still speculates the WWE still wants the Calf Crusher to be AJ’s finisher.
AJ Styles tweeted the following today:
Who said the styles clash was banned?
