Wow, I know what it is... how to describe it. Let's say Chris Jericho is putting this move on Eddie Guerrero for the sake of argument, OK? Eddie is in a hands-and-knees position on the mat. Chris grabs his arm as if to do an arm-wrench, but instead rolls him up using the arm so that Jericho's weight is fully on Guerrero. Damn hard to describe... watch it in the WWF No Mercy game sometime if you're still not sure.
Yeah, Jericho vs. Sid is tentatively scheduled for WrestleMania XIX. Also on tap, Eddie Guerrero is going to get pissed at Hector Guerrero for tarnishing the Guerrero family legacy, and Eddie (in full Black Tiger gear) will have it out with Hector, wearing the Gobbeldy Gooker suit. Smell the buyrate!

You know, I don't think I've seen that move on WWE TV for about two years now. I don't even remember who did it last.
Karl: If you had a neck and I had hands I would squeeze your brain which is your body right out of the top of your head which does not exist! Zorak: That's some great hair. Karl: Thanks, it's not real.
The most famous La Magistral I remember is the Rock delivering it to HHH in their Iron Man match a couple years back.
Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace. [He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.] Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa! [Alexa gives him a withering glare.] Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me. Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag! Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you. [Keith walks off] Alexa: Ewww!
Of all people, Bradshaw was doing La Magistral semi-regularily in matches for a while.. and the Rock breaks it out very rarely too (the Iron Man match being the most memorable). I don't recall seeing Chris Jericho doing it, though.
For a description of the move, you know an Oklahoma Roll? Envision that except without the running start, and with the person grabbing a reverse armbar before doing the rollthrough. That's the best I can do to describe it.
A wrestler--let us say "Person A"--is applying it to, aptly, Person B. It's a small federation.
B is on his hands and knees; A is standing to his left side. A pulls B's left arm up vertically and holds it at the wrist. He then lifts his (A's) right leg and steps around the arm--so that A is still standing to B's left, straddling his arm, facing away from him.
A then does another half-turn, wrapping B's arm around his knee, and facing him. As he finishes the motion, he bends down and rolls forward, clutching the arm between his knees as he does so. A rolls over B's back, and as he does so, puts his right arm between his legs, as if for a schoolboy. As A completes the roll, he pulls B over him and then leans up to him, finishing the move in a schoolboy position, with B's shoulders down on the mat, body angled pwards, with A laying with his weight across his back, one arm between his legs, the other holding onto his free arm (not always done) and his other arm still clenched between his legs.
on question 2 originally asked, I thought Sid was the Squirrel King. Which would allow a three-way match to occur between Jericho/Sid/and Lawler as to who is the true King, and would demonstrate why monarchies have fallen from grace.
Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.
The Big Book of Wrestling Moves has a lot of holds, submissions, pinning moves and suplexes. It's not complete, per se, and it hasn't been changed in a couple of years (you'll see what I mean), but it's the first place I look when I need this sort of info.

I bought it and watched. I'm a little surprised by the "worst PPV" responses, but I can't defend it as being a great PPV either. Some badly booked matches here, but nothing that they can't fix over time.
