God I hate that so much.
It's even worse when it's against HHH. Without fail, every single time, he'll do that knee smash thing. I mean, wrestling's fake and everyone knows it, but try and make it seem real. In every other sport or competitive event, ever, that would happen about twice before its scouted, it should never be that easy to hit. It's a basic implication that wrestlers just don't watch other matches, and it bothered me when I was ten years younger, let alone now.

That's why I think DiBiase's clothesline spot is cool. It's actually different to every other irish whip and you believe that its disorientated the other guy. Clever.

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

Any move where the opponent is down so the guy pauses, does some theatrics, runs to the rope and back, stops, more theatrics, then hits a completely ineffectual attack (peoples elbow, ballin, 5 knuckle shuffle)

This is why the IWC doesn't get much respect

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

Moves like the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, The Peoples Elbow, The Legdrop, The Worm etc when the opponent has to stay down for about 45 seconds off the back of a move like a backdrop, a big boot etc, all for a move that could be done in 3 seconds from a standing position without theatrics

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

My least favorite wrestling move is the 5 Knuckle Shuffle of the Attitude Era aka The Peoples Elbow

Part of The Danish Wrestling Community

How many IWC members does it take to change a lightbulb?

- Two: One to change it, and another to complain that it's not like the lightbulbs from the Attitude Era.

They will ALL be remembered as the definitive icons of professional wrestling, as they should be.

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

The 5 knuckle shuffle moveset. In particular, the part that requires the opponent to take a swing at John Cena and miss.

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...

Re: Your least favorite wrestling moves

i cannot stand when hbk would tune up the band. he's my fav wrestler of all time, but i just can't stand when he spends a good 20-30 seconds in the corner, panders to the crowd, slowly starts to stomp his foot, then eventually he'd hit it. that being said, he stopped doing it that much in the last couple of years and just hit it out of nowhere.

I really keep waiting for the day when a wrestler doesn't mindlessly swing and miss in the vague direction of Cena's head after taking those shoulderblocks. How 'bout, he brilliantly small-packages Cena for the win?
