From Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast:

“No more blonde and the Curb Stomp is gone, guys. It’s not my fault. Trust me. It’s not like I was (saying), ‘oh yes, I want a new finisher.’ No, they snatched it from me. They took it from me. No, so this is what happened, okay? After WrestleMania, I had won the (WWE) title, and I flew across the country to do the Today Show. For the Today Show, they put together a package of all of Seth Rollins’ awesome maneuvers. At the time, my finish was the Curb Stomp. So Vince McMahon is sitting wherever Vince McMahon sits on a Monday morning and he’s seeing me on the Today Show and I look good in a suit. I’m representing the company. I look good in a suit. And I’m wearing the title and then he sees this package of me stomping another man’s head into the ground and it being called the Curb Stomp on national television. And he thought to himself, ‘well, that’s not a good representation of what I want my top guy to do,’ so he just had a meeting with some of his people, and they decided, ‘well, we don’t need it – we can figure out another finish for you’ and the rest is history. I get it. I hate it. I think it’s silly, but it is what it is and it’s not my company. I’m doing the best I can with it. I get it from a marketing standpoint. I totally understand it. I hate it because it was such a great finish. It was easy and could do it to everybody, but, hey, so it my cool knee now, so let’s start liking that.”

Vince needs to step down, there was nothing really wrong with the Curb Stomp. It was a unique name and unique finisher that suited Seth Rollins well. More like made Seth Rollins special. Man fuck Vince Senile McMahon.

I could be wrong, because Vince is a total numbnuts, but that's a political answer. They're doing it because of the concussion lawsuits.

Yet they allow a move called the 'Suicide Dive'

He was also a villain at the time so surely it makes somewhat sense that his move wasn't called the fluffy kittens of the rainbows edge drop doesn't it.

I understand the argument but at least try and be somewhat consistent,
They didn't like the FU being called the FU so they just changed the name,
You shouldn't have to stop the move altogether.

Obviously this is only half the truth,
the other half being,
If the move is ever shown in court a Judge will not understand that the move is very safe and he will take it as face value.

I don't really care about He's not using Curb stomp anymore. It was dangerous to his opponents & can paralyze them. How heartless some of you guys really are.
