The slingshot-into-the-ringpost spot is a staple of professional wrestling. I affiliate it most commonly with Mr. Very best, however a ton of folks do it. It’s a type of wrestling movements that appears cool however is completely utterly ridiculous in the event you take into consideration it an excessive amount of. And even just a bit! People aren’t made from rubber. The person being slung into the submit obviously has to leap to make it paintings.
And once in a while the slingshot spot seems somewhat lame. While I used to be a bit child, I flipped while Kerry Von Erich used a slingshot into the publish to overcome Mr. Best at SummerSlam ’ninety. But if I noticed a replay later, it used to be glaring Absolute best’s head got here nowhere close to the publish. He principally tagged the submit together with his hand. Absolute best used to be nice, and so it nonetheless labored.
One guy who makes positive this ridiculous slingshot spot seems as just right as imaginable is Cesaro. Halfway during the Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro and Sheamus tag workforce name fit final night time at WWE’s No Mercy, Ambrose reversed a transfer and covered Cesaro up for the slingshot. And Cesaro, god bless him, flung his whole face into the submit.
He did it so onerous, in fact, that he broke his entrance tooth! There used to be blood all over the place. It used to be gross. It dominated. Besides, Rollins and Ambrose gained the fit.
