Jericho asks Ali about the development of his finishing move. He points out that his idea was to do Jeff Hardy’s Swanton Bomb, but backwards. When he first attempted it he jumped too hard and over-rotated. His friends quickly pointed out that he hit a backwards 450, and he knew if he could perfect that it would be a great finisher.
On a recent episode of Smackdown Live he kneed Daniel Bryan in the face while executing the move and he felt terrible. There was no explanation for why the accident happened as he wasn’t rushing, and everything about the move felt good. Regardless, he was terrified that he hurt Bryan.
Luckily, Bryan was okay and he didn’t receive any punishment from WWE officials. Officials and other wrestlers were great in the backstage area after the match, which helped him settle his mind.
Ali informs that he was a police officer before he started working for WWE. He wanted to be a police officer to help fix some of the negative thoughts surrounding police enforcement in the United States today. He always tried to de-escalate any situation he was in, and he always tried to show people respect.
