Shinsuke’s finisher, a running knee to the head, is called Kinshasa in the WWE, but in Japan it was called Bomaye. No, neither of those are Japanese words – both are actually references to Muhammad Ali’s historic bout against George Foreman known as the Rumble in the Jungle. Kinshasa is the city in Zaire where the fight took place and Bombaye is the African phrase meaning “Kill him”, which the spectators cheered Ali on with.
