- Last night at WWE Halftime Heat, Aleister Black, Ricochet and Velveteen Dream defeated the team of Adam Cole, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano and NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa. During that match, Cole performed the Panama Sunrise, leaping from the second rope and flipping Ricochet on his head. Impact Star Petey Williams wasn't pleased with WWE changing the move name on the broadcast. He started wrestling for Impact Wrestling in 2004 and has been using the Canadian Destroyer as his finisher for a number of years. He took to Twitter to talk about the move Cole performed, and the history behind it.
I don't care who does the move. Changing the name of it is the biggest disrespect. Named after the Canadian Destroyer Doug Chevalier. RIP.— Petey Williams (@iPeteyWilliams) February 4, 2019
