Former WWE NXT Champion Big E recently spoke on the Apron Spear that he occasionally uses during his wrestling matches. He revealed how he got this move and from whom he adopted it.
The former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion is recently doing really well. He is a solid mid card right now and there were rumours that WWE might elevate him to the main event status very soon. His status in WWE right now is excellent.
Big E On How He Got The Move Apron Spear
Recently E also revealed how he got his Uranage Slam. This move was previously used by Samoa Joe and Big E accepted the fact that he stole the move from Samoan Submission Machine himself.
This Apron Spear looks quite devastating as a move but E does not use this move as a finishing maneuver. Even though the move looks really good and can easily be used as a finisher. Big E’s Big Ending Finisher is quite fun to watch as well. Fans often say that this move is a modified version of the Dominator that was used by the legendary Farooq.
E recently spoke with Feel The Power where he talked on this matter of getting the Apron Spear. He said;
“The apron spear came from Fit Finlay. I always hated when people would hit the post on the spear in the corner. When do people ever hit that? I thought, ‘I’ll be the guy who actually does hit a running shoulder attack in the corner.
“Fit is like, ‘Why don’t you just do that while your opponent is on the apron?’ I was like, ‘What?’ At the time, I didn’t have much stuff in my offense, so I figured I’d give it a shot. All you people complaining about me almost killing myself, blame Fit Finlay.”
