Re: Analyze This: Spot Monkey
What sets a high flyer apart from a spot monkey is the fact a high flyer will use big moves to enhance the story being told in the ring. They'll use their moves when it makes sense in that particular match.
A spotmonkey will use their big moves pretty much only to "wow" the crowd. For example after a 450 splash a high flyer would go for a cover. A spotmonkey however would go back on the turnbuckle to hit a Shooting Star Press, instead of logically pinning their opponent to try and win the match.
Personally I'm a big fan of spot monkeys. I love seeing them do the craziest shit. I absolutely adore wrestlers like Teddy Hart, Jack Evans, AR Fox, Ricochet, PAC etc.. (though the latter 2 aren't that much of spot monkeys anymore)
