I know, what other kind do I ask, right?

ANYHOW, my girlfriend swears up and down that she was watching SMACKDOWN! one night and saw a move be called the HOG LOG. Now, I have never heard of it, and suggested perhaps it was the Brock Lock, but she said that it was Big Show in the match.

Any idea WTF she is talking about?

The move where Big Show puts the opponent in an armbar, throws his leg up and drives them down to the canvas with it

.......of course I'm probably completely butchering it in my memory

Yeah, the modified Final Cut, where Show drops his leg across the opponent instead of his other arm. Tazz called that the Hog Log once. Not as painful looking as the Alley Oop, but I'm an Alley Oop mark, so I'm biased.

Yep, the Big Show pulled out the Hog Log at WrestleMania, but Cole called it a "Spinning Leg Drop".

Looked mighty swell, too.

Okay, thanks everybody! Perhaps I should watch more SMACKDOWN and less Survivor!

And also, as wrestling physics has taught us, spin= 3x the damage by a similar move that does not involve spin.

Please also see "punch, discus", "elbow, handspring" or "sault, moon"

Which means no other move is so undiluted in damage as the airplane spin. OK, maybe the giant swing. But the airplane spin means the victim has farther to fall.

I did always like the idea of the spiral bomb because it would seem to disorient the victim right before the air is knocked out of him. The physics of that move seem more credible than, say, the People's Elbow.

Well, now wait a minute . . .

A moonsault makes sense because the spin is in the same direction as the impact. That *would* hurt more.

If you want a great case of wrestling-physics, look no further than the Shooting Star Press. WHAT on earth is the point of spinning *away* from your opponent?? lol

I mean, at least RVD's spinning legdrop could "confuse" the opponent, making it less like that he'd dodge the legdrop.

I dont think that with the SSP you are spinning AWAY from your intended target, you are spinning AWAY from the tunrbuckle in the oposite direction that a normal SPLASH would.

Either way, if you get hit with a baseball thrown by a lefty, it hurst just as much as if it were thrown by a right handed pitcher, and the spin is in the opposite direction.


Wait a minute, am I really trying to talk physics and wrestling in the same post?

While spinning is impressive, it doesn't top the 5x damage that sitting causes in a move.

Somewhere out there there is a person, perhaps a child or even a baby yet to be born... a person who will master the Ultimate Move, the Spinning Inverted Pump-Handle Sitout Driver. It will be so devastating that the first time he lands it (in a practice gym somewhere in Japan) that both wrestlers will be killed, the continents will shift and within twenty years Antarctica and North America will have exchanged places.
