Lance Storm critical of Seth Rollins' buckle bomb move

WWE superstar Seth Rollins is coming under a lot of scrutiny in recent months for his ability in the ring, in particular when it comes to keeping his opponent safe.

Bret Hart was the first big name to criticise the former Shield member, and he has since added further comments on Rollins' performance following the latest injury during one of his matches.

Rollins has all-but retired wrestling legend Sting after his buckle bomb hurt the veteran's neck during their match together at Night of Champions last year, and he has now sidelined Finn Balor after performing the same move.

During their match together at SummerSlam, for the WWE Universal Championship, Rollins buckle bombed Balor into the barricade, but unfortunately for the former NXT Champion, his arm took the brunt of the impact.

Balor could now face up to six months on the sidelines, and it's Rollins that is taking most of the blame for the injury considering he hit a move that has done damage in the past.

Bret Hart isn't the only veteran of the industry to complain about Rollins' move-set, as Lance Storm has also got involved and has also criticised the buckle bomb.

Storm was talking on Wrestling Observer Radio earlier this week, and he admitted that he is not a fan of the move because it's dangerous and puts all the risk on the person receiving the move.

Storm said: “When you’re throwing someone backwards at stuff who is partially obstructed… I’ve seen guys, if you come a little short, they bang their head on the barricade, too high you hit your back and fold yourself the wrong way.

"When your moves have a high risk but the risk is on you, I don’t mind it as much. But when you’re throwing guys backwards, the risk is all on him and I don’t like stuff like that.

"I didn’t like it when Sting took the buckle-bomb, and I don’t like it when other guys take the buckle bomb.”

It's not yet known whether WWE will reconsider the buckle bomb as a move for Rollins, but they have already removed one of his moves from his set, with the curb stomp banned after he won the WWE World Championship.

With Balor the latest to suffer a serious injury from the same move, it might be time that WWE do reconsider the buckle bomb.
