At last night’s WWE Elimination Chamber event, WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix, the ‘Grit Couple’ came out on top in Mixed Tag Team action against Finn Balor and Rhea Ripley of the Judgment Day.
The finish came when Beth hit Rhea with a Glam Slam on the outside, before she and Edge hit Finn with the Shatter Machine to score the win, which was called as such on commentary.
The Shatter Machine is, of course, the finishing move of FTR, currently called the ‘Big Rig’ when used in AEW and NJPW.

Cash responded to the tweet, also keeping it simple by saying:
