5 Stinkfaces not performed by Rikishi in WWE

Rikishi is one of the major reason behind Stinkface gained popularity in wrestling.

The Stinkfaces move was made famous by WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi. The maneuver has indeed given fans many hilarious and memorable instances. However, in the past few days, Stinkface has once again been part of the headlines, especially after the Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley performed the move at recent live events.

However, ever since the introduction of Stinkface, not only Rikishi but many other stars have used this move in the squared circle. With that said, let's discuss five Stinkfaces that were not performed by the real-life Bloodline member in WWE.

The Judgment Day member Rhea Ripley has always been part of the headlines due to her rising popularity. However, in the past few house shows, the Women's World Champion has been seen performing Stinkface on her opponents.

This was started when Ripley executed this maneuver on Nia Jax at a recent live event in Springfield, IL. The video clip recorded by the fans at that moment went viral on the internet.

This even resulted in Shayna Baszler trying to get this move executed on her intentionally at a recent house show in Rockford, IL, but The Irresistible Force stopped Rhea in her tracker. The use of Stinkface by The Eradicator is one of the primary reasons fans are discussing this maneuver despite the absence of Rikishi from WWE.

#4. Kelly Kelly performed Stinkface on various occasions


Kelly Kelly is also another WWE star who performed Rikishi's famous maneuver in the company. However, there is no particular instance where she executed the same as the 37-year-old star, who was mostly seen performing this move randomly during her matches.

#2. Bayley and Sasha Banks Stinkfaces in a live event


The list of Stinkfaces not performed by Rikshi also includes Bayley and Sasha Banks, aka Mercedes Mone. These two real-life friends had also executed Stinkfaces during a house show where they seemingly teamed up with Asuka.
