Over the weekend, WWE did a live event in Syracuse, New York. AJ Styles was one of the participants of the show. He worked a match against Tyler Breeze. It was said that Styles dominated the match on offense. The most interesting thing to come out of the show is the fact that AJ used the slingshot flying forearm as his finisher instead of the Styles Clash. Reports had surfaced that management was against him using his finisher.

When AJ Styles first showed up in WWE, he didn't immediately use the finishing move that he made world famous. That led many to believe that management was not allowing him to do the Styles Clash. It turns out that there were some hesitancy backstage in regards to allowing that move to be used. Vince McMahon apparently found out that Yoshi Tatsu was once seriously injured when the finisher was botched during a match in Japan.
