Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves
I actually don't have a problem with the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, Ballin, the Worm, the People's Elbow, etc. etc. etc. OF COURSE it's not realistic - this is professional wrestling. Watch MMA if you want realism. In the meantime, understand that these moves are just like Hornswoggle - they're designed to entertain a portion of the audience that IS NOT YOU. I'm sure there are some people on this board who hate these moves now, but cheered when Rock did it 12 years ago.
The atomic drop has ALWAYS bothered me, even when I was a kid. I always thought it looked terrible and made both guys look like idiots. Double hatred for Bob Backlund's delayed version. Ack.
Also, anytime someone does a move that even vaguely resembles a Flatliner or Russian Leg Sweep as a finisher. I'm looking at you, Miz.
God, this third hour of Raw really drags...
