Keith Lee talks about what inspired him for his finishing move- ‘Big Bang Catastrophe

Keith Lee is a limitless power wrestler. He had dominated many of his opponents with his devastating finishing moves including Randy Orton, Adam Cole, and Dominik Dijakovic. Having participated in the Royal Rumble, Keith Lee is no longer a stranger in the RAW roster.

Recently, Keith Lee featured on the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, where talked about his finishing move. Eventually, he revealed that his finishing move was inspired by the legendary manga anime series “Dragon Ball Z”.

He explained, “I hope Chris Seven watches this. He made a video, and I posted it to my Instagram, where he’s making fun of me because I have gear that is inspired by Broly and I use the Spirit Bomb, but what he doesn’t understand is that I respect Vegeta so much that the Big Bang Catastrophe was inspired by the Big Bang Attack.”

“I just didn’t want to use attack because, respect for him, I wanted to change the word [attack] and catastrophe sounds worse. I wanted to sound cooler. It was a respect move. Vegeta was someone who drew me into the anime world and so my mega finisher is inspired by the Big Bang Attack.” [h/t Fightful]

Given the fever with which Keith Lee describes the inception of his signature move, it’s clear that he is a hardcore anime fan.
