NXT’s Ohno on His Plans for the Elbow, A Laurinaitis Signs Huge Deal, Miz

- Don’t expect James Laurinaitis, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Animal, to pop up in WWE anytime soon. The NFL’s St. Louis Rams have signed James to a 5 year $41.5 million extension. The deal runs through 2017 and includes a $23.5 million guarantee.

– WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz will be on the CBS Sports Channel Fantasy Football program today at 12:30pm EST on CBSSports.com.

– If you didn’t know by now, WWE NXT star Kassius Ohno (the former Chris Hero) is using a discus elbow smash as his finishing move. Ohno calls it the KO and had the following to say on Twitter this weekend:

“A Rolling Elbow minus the ‘roll’ is simply an elbow. Discus throwers spin in a circle to build momentum & increase power. The trick is maintaining accuracy as the elbow connects. If done right, the move is incredibly effective. Can’t fault someone for utilizing such a devastating maneuver. Besides, you never know where that certain someone may have picked up the technique. Tanaka? Misawa? Or… My dream is to carry on the legacy of the Elbow from Mitsuharu Misawa just as he carried it from Jumbo Tsuruta and brought it to new heights”

    ^LOL. More a signature & they’ll probably say it was a discus punch

  • Chelsii.

    Wade Barrett’s elbow is listed as a finisher. I’m not sure what to think of it… but it looks more credible as finisher as long as he throws that elbow as hard as he can.
