In AEW: Fight Forever, taunting allows you to use a Special Move when your Momentum Meter is full. As well as kicking your opponents while they’re down (sometimes literally) and rubbing your victory in their faces, taunting has a function that can tip the balance of a match in your favour.

These Special Attacks are more powerful than your wrestler’s signature move and reference their real-world counterparts. They can do some serious damage, so be sure to taunt your heart’s content before they bring you down.

In the case of someone like Orange Cassidy, who is renowned for fighting with his hands in his pockets, it can change his move set dramatically and present a whole new fighting style.
