• Top AEW Wrestler’s Finisher Name Still Banned In WWE

WWE has banned some moves from being used on their programming, while some are allowed to be used, but aren’t referred to by their common names.

One of those moves is the “Codebreaker”, a Double Knee Facebreaker made famous by AEW’s Chris Jericho after his return to WWE in 2007.

The latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that commentators aren’t allowed to call it the “Codebreaker”, although wrestlers like RAW Women’s Champion Asuka and Ricochet still use it on TV.

Jericho doesn’t use the move as his finisher in AEW anymore, as he now puts an end to his opponents using “The Judas Effect”.
