Topic: Professional wrestling attacks


  
  Professional wrestling attacks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Attacking maneuvers in professional wrestling are mainly used to wear down an opponent for a submission hold, or set up for a throw.
When speed is built the attacking wrestler uses the speed to leap forward and wrap his/or her arm around the opponent's neck, causing the power of the force to knock down the opponent, thus causing the attacking wrestler to flip forward downward.
This attack involves a wrestler smothering their buttocks onto the face of an opponent lying in the corner of the ring, mainly to humiliate the opponent rather than to injure them.

 Wrestling Spirit for PC Review - PC Wrestling Spirit Review
The absence of serious depth in Wrestling Spirit is offset by the entertainment value of role-playing as a muscle-bound freak who bashes people over the head with chairs for a living.
Calling Wrestling Spirit the best professional-wrestling management simulation available for the PC may seem like damning the game with faint praise, but this is one excellent sports sim regardless of the diminutive size of the genre.
This is wrestling, though, so the idea is both to win matches and entertain the crowd by whipping out moves that satisfy the audience and demolish the opposition.

 Submission Wrestling
Submission wrestling or submission grappling, judo, and some styles of jujitsu, most notably Brazilian, are sports/martial arts which are basically wrestling, with the addition of submission holds (chokes, armbars or arm locks, leg locks, etc.).

According to the great Vince McMahon, professional wrestling is now "sports entertainment", a metamorphosis that has transformed this once-ugly backroom exhibition into a pretty new butterfly, fraught with all sorts of crossover possibilities.
Even loyal hard-core wrestling fans, for all their hand-wringing and crocodile tears, even we keep our mouths shut when it comes to calling for any kind of fundamental change in the way business is done in this seamy enterprise called Professional Wrestling.
