    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.

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?

A missile drpkick is from the top rope.

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.

I wonder how many people are actually effected by the "my favorite wrestler is on the other show" phenomenon. For example, RAW is coming to town, but you like Angle or Jericho or Hogan.
