Apologies for the lack of cool moves last week, Cool Moves™ fans. I love y’all, but I wasn’t spending my vacation searching for and making GIFs of wrestling spots (the missus certainly wouldn’t have liked it).
Anyway, I should still have a post with more moves at some point later this week, but I didn’t want to sit on this one until I’ve rounded up a few more. Ricochet springboard splashing John Morrison off the ringside barricade was just too “HOLY $#!+!”
The spot makes me think a few things...
- It’s great that Ricochet is getting another chance to show off his amazing skills on one of wrestling’s biggest stages.
- It’s very cool that Morrison is doing at least part of what he told talkSPORT he wanted to do in his second WWE run: “I want to create moments that people remember” (Gonna have to keep working on that whole “main eventing WrestleMania” thing, Moist Man).
- While I won’t mourn the ThunderDome, it did provide an environment where wrestlers, agents & producers could come up with some really badass stuff like this.
But mostly, my reaction is pretty much the same as Miz’s...
