Random/Weird Questions Thread

Been trying to figure this out all day, so I thought I'd put it to the fine people of WF... I'm trying to remember what wrestler does a really awesome corner cannonball. They almost seem to get hangtime on it and it has great impact. I don't think it was on Raw or Smackdown- thinking it was either NXT, or AEW or NJPW? Google and YouTube aren't giving me anything when I Google "cannonball pro wrestling" or "who does the cannonball in wrestling"?

Can anyone help? Throw suggestions of wrestlers that do really awesome cannonballs at me. I remember seeing it the other week and being in awe that this wrestler made a fairly simple wrestling move look so great.

And so this thread doesn't die too quickly and painfully, I thought I'd make it a place where other weird questions that you can't solve from a quick Google search go.

Thanks gents (and ladies).

Not who I was thinking of- I don't watch Impact- but that was a pretty good one nonetheless. Thanks for the reply dude!

Re: Random/Weird Questions Thread



just couple minutes or so into this match Will jumps off the apron then attends to the thumb on his right hand

did he dislocate it on the way down?

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

That's the one! Dave Mastiff! Much appreciated, good sir. My foggy memory was telling me it was a bigger guy, and the move was almost graceful, especially for a bigger wrestler. Thanks!

Glad to see others chipping in with different obscure questions! Feel like this'd be a fun thread where people learn all sorts of random shit.

Another one, and this is definitely NJPW based, since I've been watching the G1 this year (currently a day or so behind). I've noticed wrestlers will often yell their opponents name as they go to do a move, for example I heard Will Ospreay yell "Ibushi!" during their match a few days ago. I think Juice does it in every match he's in. At first I thought it was a way of cutting through the language barrier and calling a spot, but I've also seen Japanese wrestlers do it to each other during matches. So, why do NJPW wrestlers yell each other's names like that?

Tried the Google search on it and all that I really got was YouTube clips of people in WWE loudly calling spots (especially John Cena).

I'm a woman, but no problem.

As for the yelling bit, I've always took it as a in the heat of the battle aspect. Such as charging at the enemy, letting them know you're coming with all of your force and then ready to strike. Like Juice does it often before he swings back for his Left Hand of God punch, and so on and so forth. It's less of a calling spot move (instinct always plays a part, and moves tend to often be in English as a universality with language barriers. Even if this could be a tell.) & more just a common attribute with Puro/"fighting spirit" type jazz.

Haha sorry about that, didn't mean to offend. Guess that's what happens when you assume things.

The "fighting spirit" angle makes sense, I was leaning towards it being something like that if it wasn't a call. Thanks for the great answers!
