Re: Why is the Styles Clash barely being used?
Well there are two reasons. AJ isn't capable of pulling it off safely and it's basically been established as Michelle McCool's move.
Michelle was able to do it for years without injuring anyone because she's billed at 5'11; taller than most Divas. The height advantage helps a ton because you allow more space for the person receiving the mood to tuck their heads out. She's also extremely strong and could support the weight of the smaller girls. Seeing as Styles is both short and physically smaller than a lot of guys on the roster, there's a lot more room for error making it riskier. Given WWE's recent past with injuries, it's safe to assume they don't want him hurting any other people.
As for the second reason, Michelle did it with power and dominance. It looked so much better to see her lay people out with the Faithbreaker. You can see AJ physically struggle to pull off the move which makes it look really awkward.
