She calls it a Death Valley Bomb, which we know as the Death Valley Driver, or Spicolli Driver

I guess I'll take her claim with a grain of salt , but as it stands , I've seen it's orgins credited to no one else except her . Just another question , didn't Spicolli call it the DVD OR did he call it the Spicolli Driver ?

After he died, Dreamer used it and called it the Spicolli Driver.

So to answer your question, no. As the storyline went, Spicolli lifted the DVD, so somebody else had to use it first, so there's no way he could be considered the innovator of the move.

That applies to 95 % of all cool moves that haven't been around since the 1950s.

Kanyon and E.Z Money lifted it from him, but I've never seen it outside of America...
