There has been quite a bit of
discussion online as of late
regarding Michelle McCool using
the "Styles Clash" finisher
popularized by AJ Styles of rival
promotion TNA Wrestling. The
WWE Women's Champion has

maneuver, so much so that she
has spoken out online a few

and hasn't come up with one."
However, Styles feels the WWE
wrestler performs them well, so
he has no real problem with
"But there is that one dude.
What's his name? I'm like, good
grief, this guy does everyone
else's move and hasn't come up
with one," Styles said. "He's a
heck of an athlete. Morrison.
Yeah, I've seen him do a lot of
Low Ki's moves. He does my
Spiral Tap. I was like, 'Man, this
guy watches a lot of tape.' But
he does them well, so I can't say
anything bad about him. He
does them well. He's heck of an
