Will AJ be allowed it use the Style Clash in WWE?

I don't mean from a branding POV, more a safety thing. He's broken numerous necks with it.

He keeps teasing it, but it hasn't been used yet....

Absolutely, if the WWE were going to ban it they wouldn't even allude to it let alone have him go for it numerous times already, my guess is they just want to keep the move strong, no point having him hit it unless its going go get him the win.

Completely agree. You cant sell how powerful a move is in a match like the Rumble where you dont win by pin. Although its not like Itami and the GTS, which I still dont know why we've seen it on TV (aside from the obvious Injury)

Didn't a Diva use the same move?

Michelle McCool used it for years without problem.

They have mentioned it by name and teased it, no way he's not hitting it.

The GTS is different because it is so heavily associated with CM Punk. Obviously KENTA used it first, but in the WWE's audience mind that would immediately bring thoughts of CM Punk, something they've largely avoided. It'd be like if somebody started using the Atomic Leg Drop; sure it's just a move, which are often used by multiple people, but it's so closely associated with Hogan it'd make people think of him.

Isn't really an issue when it comes to some wrestlers using the Crossface though.

To be fair, that had already been used by others in WWE beforehand. Unlike the GTS.
