WWE Hall of Famer and current WWE announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler is getting some criticism after last night’s WWE RAW, which actually has him trending on Twitter. Why? Well, he referred a spot between Austin Theory and Akira Tozawa as a “Ramen Noodle Moonsault.”
After a diving senton by Tozawa, Lawler said,
“Looked like a Ramen Noodle Moonsault.”
