GIF: How to run the ropes, Earthquake style

In working on my "Dumbest Ass" award series, I've come across some great moments in the Royal Rumble match. Because this site wasn't in existence in 1991, we didn't get the chance to cover how glorious some of those moments really were.

Like the 1991 Royal Rumble when it came down to Earthquake and Hulk Hogan as the final two and the former decided to hit the ropes before an elbow drop on the latter. And when I say "hit the ropes" I mean stumbled over before collapsing into them:

That right there is expert rope running, if you're a gassed big man.
