      Actually, what we really need is the DOUBLE drop kick. I think I would mark out big time if a tag team brought that bad boy out again.

    Last week on The Golden Age of Wrestling on ESPN Classic, they finally showed a match with Argentina Rocca, a guy that my Dad's been telling me about for years.

    He lead into his finisher with a quadruple drop-kick, then won the match with a backbreaker submission.

    As for Rocca's performance, he wrestled barefoot, did lots of acrobatic moves and kicked his opponent in the face a lot (mainly little jab-like slap kicks). He also busted out an Ed Grimly dance move, did a cartwheel standing in one spot, and reminded me of a grounded RVD.

    Except that he looked like a young Vic Tayback.

    Later, Rudy

I saw that ESPN Classic Wrestling. Pat O' Connor also busted out the dropkick at the end of his match with Buddy Rogers.

I think the reason that the dropkick isn't seen as much is because of all the aerial moves we see today by the likes of The Hardy Boyz, E & C, RVD, etc. The Dropkick back in the old days was the big aerial move that a wrestler had that would pop the crowd (such as in the ESPN Wrestling Classic). Now it really doesn't pop the crowd as much as the ***** frog splash or the swanton bomb. I don't mind since the only people in the WWF who do a good dropkick are Bob Holly and Maven.

There's only one way to settle this... a MASTER OF THE DROPKICK MATCH.

I've always wondered, what's the difference between a regular dropkick and a missile dropkick?

Homer: There's your giraffe, little girl.
Ralph: I'm a boy!
Homer: That's the spirit. Never give up.

A missile drpkick is from the top rope.

Caring is the first step towards disappointment.

Also, with a missile dropkick, the feet MUST stay together, and the wrestler must hit the move from a side angle.
A regular dropkick usually has some seperation on the legs, and often times (especially in the 80s), the wrestler would sit out on a dropkick.
Oh, and a missile does Not have to be from the top rope, you can do a springboard missile, like what Jericho used to do.
Sorry, I'm anal, I know.

Insert clever comment.

This is really bothering me, too. When I see segments like the kissing contest last night, it makes me wonder why exactly I'm supposed to be booing Nexus. They have a problem with management? Of course they have a problem with management!
