Randy Orton had this to say in response to Kurt Angle’s comments regarding last night’s WrestleMania 27 PPV:
“Everythings been done before as far as ‘moves’ go in the sports entertainment. I want to thank SCSA for the ‘Thesz Press’.
And I know for a fact that SCSA got the ‘Thesz Press’ from Dutch Mantel.
Point being, instead of taking offense to someone using your move, consider it a sign of respect.
Btw does anyone know what Ken Shamrocks finish was? I believe Jack Swagger used ankle lock outta respect for Ken?
Spoiler on What’s Next for Randy Orton in WWE…”
Angle took issue with WWE stars using his signature maneuvers, with Michael Cole even pulling down his shoulder straps before locking in the ankle lock. He wrote:
“To WWE wrestlers, Don’t use my Finish. Get more Creative. Hmmmm- Orton. Did I say that.
I heard Orton had an Awesome match though. Ur welcome. Lol.
I guess Swagger will use my Ankle Lock as well.Very creative. I’m the Best in the World. You Guys will never be Kurt Angle.can I get an AMEN.
Kurt Angle will never die. TNA. WWE. I’m a leader. Not follower.
Why would WWE use my finishes? Is it because I won’t go back? R Orton- Angle Slam. M Cole- Ankle Lock? They have some nerve.
Jerry Lawlor did it too. But He is a Legend. WWE really stuck it to Me.No Love lost. I’m glad that I helped Your biggest Event of the Year:)” (Kurt Angle not pleased with WrestleMania 27)
