Video: Pro Wrestling Moves Pulled Off in MMA

 

Rodriguez of Fightlinker put together the above video compilation of the best pro-wrestling moves pulled off for real in MMA.

Here's a rough list of them from a previous post he did. They don't match the video exactly.

  1. Chance Fararr’s Mountain Bomb on Urijah Faber
  2. Urijah Faber’s Schwein Redline on Chance Fararr
  3. Josh Barnett’s German Suplex on Yuki Kondo
  4. Sean Sherk’s Spinebuster on Kenny Florian
  5. Jamie Varner’s Death Valley Driver on Sherron Leggett
  6. Nate Marquardt’s Kawada Driver to Thales Leites
  7. Caol Uno’s Sleeperhold on Mitsuhiro Ishida
  8. Yoshihisa Yamamoto’s DDT to Mark Kerr
  9. Wes Sims’ Jacknife Powerbomb on Edwin Allseitz
  10. Daijiro Matsui’s Dropkick on Pele
  11. Houston Alexander’s Chokeslam to Thiago Silva
  12. Johnathan Ivey’s People’s Elbow to Joe Namath

I always loved pro-wrestling as a kid, spending countless hours on the trampoline trying to recreate thecoolest moves. Glad to see I wasn't alone. Even cooler to see some of them actually have application in MMA. Some of them are just utter duds, but one or two of the moves actually seem to work.
