• WWE Restricts One Of Lars Sullivan’s Moves For Special Occasions
According to the Wrestling Observer, Lars Sullivan will only use The Freak Accident and Running Sit-Down Powerbomb as his primary finishers in WWE.
WWE officials aren’t allowing Lars to use the Diving Headbutt as a regular move, but it will be saved for special occasions.
The reason behind this is the fact that the Diving Headbutt is a pretty dangerous move for the person that’s performing it. Old School Wrestlers such as Harley Race, The Dynamite Kid and Chris Benoit faced issues due to that move.
Harley Race once said in an interview that he wishes he never invented that move, because it caused a lot of damage to his neck.
Lars will only use that move for big matches/angles from now on.
