The Frog Splash's Cageside Evaluation

What you loved:

  1. RVD - One of the finest frog splashers ever. He could get crazy height, and jump at awkward angles that didn't seem possible. Always sold like the impact hurt him more than his opponent.
  2. Eddie Guerrero - Executed this move just as well, but had more impact due to his larger size, especially later in his career.
  3. D'Lo - His "low down" version, was highly underrated, but received a lot of love in today's article.
  4. High Risk - Looks amazing, and a great way to finish a match.
  5. Flair - Basically a splash, but just has that added "wow factor" in mid-air.

Best comment comes via Detroit Larry:

"When done properly, this is a picture perfect finishing maneuver. The height, hang-time, and impact all make the move look incredible. So glad people brought up D-Lo Brown’s Lo Down. He was a large man doing a frog splash with that awesome chest protector to make the impact seem much more devastating. Obviously RVD and Eddie set the bar high for the move."


What you loathed:

  1. Sloppy - If not done 100% right, the attacker looks awfully dumb. Some guys don't tuck and extend enough, while others rush it way too fast.
  2. Christian - Case in point.
  3. Chavo - Example number two.
  4. Hurts Attacker - Seems like crashing down on your rib cage is never a good idea.
  5. Hornswoggle - Just no, please don't do it. Ugh!

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick probably hates doing springboards.
