I've been getting big into watching wrestling moves on YouTube. You get a lot of crazy head dropping flippy shit that you don't see on the 'E. Of course, it's also a great place to pick up finishers or other signature moves for your wrestler. I've come across a few users that are really good at putting the material out there on the web to look at. Look for TheSuicidalDragon, ProWrestlingProfiles and bexproxsoxbro. Those are the guys I'm subscribed to.
Of all the features they do, one of the best is when they do "The Top Ten Moves of..." It's a great way to showcase a wrestler's non-finisher signature moves as well as let you into their big finishes. Here's an example, the top ten moves of Matt Sydal, as compiled by Suicidal Dragon. You know him better as Evan Bourne in the WWE:
Cool, huh? I wonder how many people are going to lift the Cyclorama now as their finisher :p
But it got me thinking... what if we made these kinds of lists and/or videos for our guys? Lists would be okay, but I'd love to see what we could do with wrestling video games and webcams. That's my challenge to you. Post a video on YouTube of your wrestler's top 10 moves and then send the link to me, and I'll feature it.
If you don't have access to a webcam or don't have a wrestling video game that reflects your wrestler's true moves, then just post your moves list here and maybe someone will be so kind to post the list for you.
Now, without further ado (in list form because I don't have a webcam :[)...
