Default hooking the leg

Now I have been watching wrestling for a very long time now.and the one thing that i have noticed lately well for the past few months is how much they are "hooking the leg" now.what happen to the days of the lateral press or the arrogant cocky way jericho would just stand on his oppnenets chest to get the pin. what is the point of big show hooking the leg. why is that.. at one time hooking the leg was to give the person extra leverage in the pin attempt. so why has hooking the leg became so over used these days.. dont post much so please dont bash it too hard.. lol

Lance Storm actually wrote a really good article relating to this.

This is what he's talking about I think. A link to his website is included in the story.

It's all the little things that people don't know how to do now. The whole point of lifting the leg is to put more weight over top of the shoulders to keep them from pushing them up. Somewhere along the way that got lost in translation.


There's a great shoot with Raven where he talks about how no tag team working today understands the clapping behind the ref's back to fake a tag gimmick. They do it randomly and it makes no sense when it's supposed to be there as a setup for a couple of different spots in matches. Without the knowledge they just look retarded. It's why wrestling is getting worse and worse.

Is the FCW training program to blame?

Personally, I really like this kind of cover. Especially early in a match. Guys like Finlay, Regal and Benoit would really dig that forearm shiver into the jawbone.

And so, what the point of clapping ?

To make the ref think he heard a tag... which really makes no sense since the ref isn't supposed to allow the tag unless he sees it. Or at least you'd think that's the rule because when a face tag team does it and the ref doesn't see it then it's not allowed.

Really it's just a prop used to get the crowd into the match and angry at not only the heels but the ref for being so stupid.

hooking the leg is a conversation piece of a storyline
as to hooking the leg secures the pin when not hooked
correctly they can sell it as if not hooking the leg is
the reason for a kickout....just a announcers sell point
