Man that was a crappy sell of the Diamond Cutter by the Big Bossman. It seems nobody has sold it right since DDP came to the WWF, although against other WWF guys who have never done it before I can understand. But surely DDP and Big Bubba/Ray Traylor (or whatever he was called) faced each other in WCW at some point.

I think they may have once or twice during the brief period that Big Bubba was in the nWo. Then again, Traylor sucks, so of course he didn't sell it correctly.

But, as you said, it does seem that no one has sold the Diamond Cutter correctly since Page has been in the WWF. And for awhile there, no one was selling Booker T's Axe Kick correctly, either.

I remember a particularly horrifying time when DDP Diamond Cuttered Sara. She seemed to just kind of... fall over, I guess. The worst selling job ever by someone not named Undertaker, Nash or Hogan.

And that, as they say, is that.

I can forgive the upper card for not knowing how to sell an axe kick. I mean who was the last person to use it as a finisher? Bull Buchanan?

The Diamond Cutter is unacceptable, as evenyone in the WWF has taken a stunner or a 3D at somepoint. The cutter is the same 3/4 neckbreaker. I don't expect everyone to do Rocky's little jump when they're hit by it, but it shouldn't be too hard to make it look good.

At least with the 3D you don;t have a choice as you are hoisted in the air..
Lots of people take the Twist of Faith right which is more the same but nobody from the upper card..

The stunner is a very different move imo. Yes the target area is the same but Austin sits down, and the opponents lands on his knees.

Has anybody noted btw that Chris Benoit is the only one pretty much screw up the Stunner? Instead of going on his knees he squats down..perhaps he was doing that because of his injured neck at that time (which preceeded TLC3 for a bit already) but it sure looked weird and even lame at times..

The real reason HBK has never made that much talked about comeback used to bounce out of synch with the other Nitro Girls.

On a somewhat related story, does anyone remember the Bubba Dudley "Bubba Cutter" on Jeff Hardy on Heat during Jeff's "Suicide" days? Bubba whipped him into the ropes and on Jeff's way back, Bubba launched him in the air and did the Cutter on Jeff on his way down. It was AWESOME! The crowd popped like crazy and we never saw that move again. It looked pretty dangerous, but it was an amazing site.

The problem was that Bossman sold the Diamond Cutter like a Stunner. It's a different sell. Although I agree that it's the same sell as the twist of fate.

The reason nobody sells the Axe Kick right is because Booker never used to land on his feet after that move. He would always land on his back. That let the guy selling it have Booker's leg kind of guide him down to the mat, instead of just having the leg tap him on the back of the neck and then having to sell it, which had got to be tough because you can't really see the other leg coming. I think people are starting to get the hang of selling it now though.

I didn't notice Boss Man (no longer the Big Bossman for whatever reason) sell it funny, but I can never forget the selling job Kane did. He didn't know what the fuck he was taking there way back in July/August.

Wasn't the Stone Cold Stunner originally called The Stone Cold Cutter?

The Diamond Cutter, Bubba Cutter, Stone Cold Stunner, Twist of Fate, 3-D, and Acid Drop are all variations of the Ace Crusher. So the sell is similar for them all. The only one from the list that's very different is the Stunner, simply because it's not supposed to end up looking like an inverted neckbreaker.

Not only that, he'd be a MUCH bigger asset to those other feds than he would be for the WWF. They need a big name like him, whereas the WWF's problems are... well, pretty well-documented here. ;)
