When Big Time Becks returned at SummerSlam 2021, she turned heel and had a different alteration of her initial character. Subsequently, to match the new version of her gimmick, she started using ‘The Manhandle Slam’ a similar move to ‘The Rock Bottom’.

Further in the interview, she asked Wahlberg what her finishing move will be if he is facing Kevin Hart. He looked at Hart and did a flying kiss impression, calling it the Kiss of Death. The Man told Wahlberg that her recent top rival, Bianca Belair, already uses this move.

The Man said, “So I used a variation of The Rock Bottom before but it’s just easier to get it and go. I asked The Rock if I could use it and he was very gracious and said that I could.”

Lynch now uses the move and has named it ‘The Manhandle Slam’. Moreover, her version of Rock Bottom helped The Man win many big matches recently.
