KENTA of Pro Wrestling NOAH commented on CM Punk utilizing a number of his trademark wrestling maneuvers in WWE. He told the Daily Star, “Please list him on the wanted list as he stole my move.” Punk was so enamored with the Japanese wrestling star years ago that he adopted a good portion of his moveset, including the GTS and a multiple slaps/roundhouse kick sequence.
Today marks the ninth anniversary of the passing of former WWE star Davey Boy Smith, who succumbed to a heart attack while on vacation in Invermere, British Columbia. His ex-wife, Diana Hart Smith, posted a remembrance on her Twitter account. “Nine years without Davey. Seems like he’s still here, especially when I see Harry and Georgia. I’m so glad for YouTube and DVD’s so the world can see how incredible he was,” she wrote. “I miss Davey very much, more and more as time goes on. He is irreplaceable. So big, strong, athletic, handsome, talented in the ring and so funny too!”
