I doubt he invented it, but he did have a hand in popularizing the move, which explains why some name the move after him (also in part due to him dying).

This is the person they claimed "invented" the Death Valley Driver.

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

Just another question , didn't Spicolli call it the DVD OR did he call it the Spicolli Driver ?

I believe it was called the Death Valley Driver when he was using it. After he died, Dreamer used it and called it the Spicolli Driver.

If I recall correctly, Spicolli "stole" the move from Dreamer as part of his phony "innovator of violence" gimmick (and feud with Dreamer) - but then he had to go and die, so Dreamer completely forgot that he had ever hated him and created the tribute.

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.

The easy answer is: I'm sure someone in Japan did it first.

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

Ah, what about Wrath's mondo-cool inverted Boston Crab? Kanyon and E.Z Money lifted it from him, but I've never seen it outside of America...
