#4 Chris Jericho called out a former WWE tag team for stealing his finisher

Chris Jericho has used The Codebreaker for several years as a finisher now, inside and outside WWE. Jericho has been in the wrestling industry for almost three decades and he has perfected almost every wrestling move that he uses in the ring.

Jericho became a huge name in WWE before he went on to other promotions and finally landed in All Elite Wrestling (AEW). However, when Jericho was on hiatus in 2014, The Revival started performing the Flapjack-Codebreaker variation.

When Jericho returned to WWE, The Revival continued to use the finisher and this did not sit well with the former WWE Champion. Dash Wilder from The Revival tweeted a GIF showing the team performing the move known as The Shatter Machine, and Jericho took a shot at the Superstar.

He called The Revival ‘Indie Guys’ who disrespected him. Dash then responded by apologizing to the Japanese wrestler Marufuji who was the pioneer of the Codebreaker.

During an episode of Talk Is Jericho earlier this year, Jericho sat down with The Revival and the trio recalled their Twitter feud.


They seem to have put the war of words behind them and are on pretty good terms, as all three wrestlers are now signed with AEW.
