Wrestlers using other wrestlers' moves isn't a new concept, but that doesn't mean certain wrestlers aren't going to notice (and take offense) when it happens. That's just what happened in the case of Seth Rollins and KUSHIDA.
KUSHIDA revealed on Twitter that he is calling his new small package driver the "Back to the Future" and asked former TNA X Division Champion Frankie Kazarian, who uses a similar move, if he was okay with the idea. Rollins, who used to utilize a small package driver, responded to KUSHIDA, noting that the move already had a name--"God’s Last Gift."
Here is a gif of the move in question:
The Twitter conversation, which includes Rollins' comments can be seen below.
But KUSHIDA came back at Rollins with some logic that even Rollins couldn't find fault with.
KUSHIDA then responded with a message of thanks, squashing whatever beef might have been remaining.
Rollins does not use the move in question as much as he used to when he wrestled in the independent promotions, but still breaks it out on rare occasions, such as when he faced off against Finn Balor for the WWE Universal Championship at the 2016 edition of SummerSlam.
When the move was used in that match, however, announcer Corey Graves simply called it a small package driver.
KUSHIDA currently is competing in New Japan Pro Wrestling's Best of the Super Juniors tournament while Rollins is in pursuit of the Universal title, competing in a Fatal Five-Way Extreme Rules match for the # 1 contendership at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on June 4th.
