Black-ish's official Twitter shared a clip of Junior explaining to his father that he and his brother were trying to recreate "the classic Wrestle Kingdom Okada-Tanahashi match" and that's why there is a hole in the wall.


"Well we tried to recreate the classic Wrestle Kingdom Okada – Tanahashi match," Junior said. "I went for the Rainmaker and I accidentally threw him into the wall."
