Kidman did a real cool counter out of it into the Kid Krusher once. I'd assume it would look something like that, only in reverse.
I always thought it would be cool if Helms did the Full Nelson into the behind the back double underhook (like Christian does) into the Vertabreaker. I think he would have to do the Full Nelson with his arms the other way (palms facing backward) to make it work though.
Farooq is the man so hit your knees and start praying!
Then again, I always WAS annoyed at the fact that he started using that because he'd lost his confidence in the Shooting Star Press. Granted, he almost killed Vampiro by landing knee first on his face with the move, and I remember him jumping up, but not out, and landing head first on the turnbuckle.
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
ARGH! I totally missed that match! All I got to see was Molly putting on Hurricane's cape!
But here's an AJ Styles question: Was it a normal Shooting Star Press (Cool) or was it the Shooting Styles Press (Spring board SSP! Extremely cool!) because if it was the spring board...I'm going to kick myself extra hard!
Nothing is better than X-pac! It's all in the inflection...
Oh man, that's good stuff. What is that, the first time he's hit it since coming toi the WWF? I know he's tried it a few other times, but it's never made sense to me why he would. You gotta figure that the good majority of the fans out there have never seen a Vertebreaka before so when he tries try and hit it, but doesn't what the hell is the point? I always figured he was doing it to torture me and get me pissed off that he doesn't do 'em anymore.
If he's doing the Vertabreaker then why can't Kane do a much safer Tombstone?
Because they have "outlawed" pile drivers to use as special damaging moves.. Has nothing to do with Kane I think (although I don't think you actually implied that?)
First let's see if Hurricane gets to use the vertebreaker more often..Might be a one time thing Or..as Page told me to think (=positive). AJ Styles vs Hurricane, missing SSP and Vertebreaker..are we seeing a cruiserweight start here?

The main event was nothing short of awesome. Did everybody miss the psychology on the leg for most of the first match. I thought Shawn did a great job selling the leg, and I thought it was refreshing that Trips didn't work on the back the entire time.
