Cesaro's tag team partner was injured by the finishing move.

Cesaro wants WWE to ban Samoa Joe's finishing move

Published 42 Comments

WWE have been adding plenty of moves to their banned list over the past few years, and according to Monday Night Raw superstar Cesaro, they should be adding another one to the list.

Moves such as the piledriver, the curb stomp, the brainbuster, and Randy Orton's punt kick have all been banned over the years by WWE for being too dangerous for the individual receiving the move, and Cesaro believes Samoa Joe's finisher should be added to the list.

The NXT star, who made his name with TNA, hits the Muscle Buster as his finisher, which basically sees him drop his opponents on the upper back/neck area.

It's a finisher that has all-but permanently put Tyson Kidd on the shelf after he suffered a life-threatening neck injury due to the move being performed on him at a house show.

According to Kidd himself, only 5% of people survive the injury he sustained, which resulted in him having 16 staples, four screws, and a rod inserted into his neck.

Kidd's wrestling career is likely to be over due to the injury, and it's something that Cesaro feels WWE should act upon, preferably by banning the move altogether.

During an interview with GMA News, Cesaro was asked if he'd ever fancy wrestling Samoa Joe, with the NXT star likely to be promoted to the main roster sooner rather than later, and the Swiss Superman responded by saying he wouldn't mind fighting him, but only if the Muscle Buster wasn't allowed.

Cesaro said: “Yes — maybe without the muscle buster. There’s a couple of moves outlawed in the WWE, and I think that one maybe be added. But I wrestled Samoa Joe before, and why not again?”

Cesaro was part of a tag team with Kidd before he suffered his neck injury, and that could be a main reason behind him not liking the move.
