Hi, My Name is: The Power Bomb

This series seeks to evaluate the WWE roster (not today!) through the lens of the fan. What do you love and what do you loathe about each wrestling move? Up next: The Power Bomb

"Just when you think you have all the answers, I change the questions." – "Rowdy" Roddy Piper

Okay technically, I didn't come up with the idea, but recently promoted Cagesider Casey Garner hit me up on Twitter with the thought that we should critique wrestling moves. I thought it was a fantastic idea, and in return I'll plug his Twitter and wrestling podcast, The Casey & Jeremy Show, for his efforts.

So the plan going forward is to mix in some wrestling moves to lengthen this series and change things up a bit. Plus, it will be cool to see where moves rank after a few months of doing this. When critiquing, focus on the move itself, not just the person(s) who performed it regularly (ex: don't give The Superkick a "5" solely because Shawn Michaels did it). Some things to consider are how believable it is, creativity, and how devastating a move looks.


If this is your first read with this series, here's the deal: We are looking to hyper-critique an individual move and try to pinpoint what is great and terrible about it. It's okay to pull out the snark card in your responses.

In fact, it's encouraged!

After enough people respond, I will organize what are the best and worst traits of The Power Bomb, and compile an evaluation post later in the day. Also, don't worry if you have the same answers as others, the point is to figure out a common denominator for each wrestling move.

So the two questions for you are:

What one thing do you consistently love about The Power Bomb?

What one thing do you consistently loathe about The Power Bomb?
