Two Fans Arrested At GAB, Why WWE Let Bourne Use His Finisher

Chris Cash


Newsday.com has an article up stating that two men, Keith Powell and Timothy Vandewater, were arrested following last night’s Great American Bash pay per view after trying to steal chairs backstage. A WWE employee tried to stop them in the parking lot, but he was hit over the head with a bottle by Vandewater, who then proceeded to bite the WWE employee. Both men were charged with burglary and Vandewater was also charged with an assault charge. You can read the full story HERE.

As most of you know, the shooting star press was banned up until Evan Bourne was allowed to use it for his finisher. ProWrestling.net reports that the WWE was very reluctant at first and Bourne was asked to come up with a different finisher. He went with the double knee drop off the top rope, but officials felt like it was too close to a move that Rey Mysterio sometimes performs (I have no idea what move that would be), so he was asked to change it again. When the shooting star press was brought up again, they asked Bourne to perform it for them multiple times to prove whether or not it was a safety risk. After nailing it each time, the WWE allowed him to use the move as his finisher.
