Shane Thorne Says He Was Inspired By Nikki A.S.H With New Character

Last night, WWE SmackDown star Shane Thorne (the former SLAPJACK of RETRIBUTION infamy) debuted a new gimmick in a dark match against Austin Theory prior to the show.

The look saw Thorne wearing a Crocodile Dundee inspired attire, complete with Khaki shorts and Crocodile Tooth hat, which has received mixed reactions from wrestling fans online.

Thorne took to his Twitter earlier today in an attempt to explain the origins of the character. He revealed that the new character was his idea, and that he was inspired by current Women’s Tag Team Champion Nikki A.S.H to come up with his own character.

Thorne tweeted:

Just to let yous know what I’m trying now is all me and my ideas A huge inspiration for me is @WWENikkiASH and you can’t deny that she is doing incredible! Wrestling can be fun! So relax mate and let’s have a good one

There has been no doubt that Nikki’s new character has found her immediate success in WWE, with her winning the Money In The Bank, Raw Women’s Championship and Women’s Tag Team Championship in the span of three months.
