Christian Cage Reveals Where He Got The Killswitch Move



During a recent appearance on the “Insight with Chris Van Vliet” podcast, Christian Cage commented on how he started using the Killswitch as his finishing move, why he liked the move, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On where he got the Killswitch move: “At the time I’m a student of the game, and … when I was coming up — I’d watch a lot of tapes from different wrestling promotions and I was watching a Japanese, I believe it was an All Japan [Pro Wrestling] tape, and Tommy Rogers was on there and he did the Tomakaze and he didn’t use it as a finish, he just used it as a spot in the match.”

On why he liked the move: “When I slowed down the turn, and when it stopped in this position where the guy’s arms are over your shoulder, it just happened to stop in this position… and I thought to myself: If the bottom just fell out right there it becomes like a piledriver and looks super devastating… and it’s something that I can do to anybody no matter what size they are.”

On originally planning to use the TKO, which Marc Mero asked if he could use instead: “Everything happens for a reason, and this finish suits me much more.”
