so i saw king execute a DDT on Miz
Miz sold it like it was supposed to be sold

the DDT was at one time considered a very dangerous move,
banned in some promotions

when Jake the Snake was doin the move he was looked at as a villain for droppin folks on the head


now the DDT is common place and folks jus get right back up


what are some other moves that were devastating but are now jus filler moves???

    powerbombs

    once feared because you could break someone's back or bash their heads against the mat, is now a normal move.


    I think when the cruiserweights started doing all the "big" moves, it cheapened their affect. Look back at old WCW tapes and watch the CW division go nuts using "big" moves to get over on their opponents.

    i remember what is now the "tap out" was just called "giving up". I think the "tap out" became a household name when Pancreas and the UFC were in their infancy in the early 90s. When Ken Shamrock came to the WWF, that's when dudes started to "tap out" to submissions. Rarely do I hear, "he gives up".

    I think the Figure 4 became exclusive to Ric Flair. The WWE has a thing with guys recycling moves made uber famous by a well respected wrestler. I think only Shawn Michaels was the last to be allowed to even chop dudes while in the corner because the crowd would do the 'woooo!!!', and since many people compare HBK to Flair, the WWE allowed him to do it but no one else.

    I remember when diving over the top rope to someone on the floor was the 🤬 . Remember how Mike Tenay used to pump up Hector Garza and his Corkscrew Plancha? Now every dude under 6 feet has it in their moveset. It's a real spectacle to see a big man do moves like the 450 Splash or the Phoenix Splash. I think those moves still get 3-counts to this day because they are nice to see and not everyone can do them.

    mally g got a point

    i member there used to not be tap outs

    the ref would come raise your hand and if you drop it three times then that would a "quit"

    and also he would ask the wrestler if they give up or quit and they would verbally respond

    thats why you still hear refs ask "do you give up" sometimes,
    but
    even that was ruined by the wwe because of the "i quit" match being popularized as the match where a wrestler must say "i quit"

    some of the time, the guy would be trying to get out of the submission hold, like a sharpshooter or cloverleaf and would be trying to get his hands planted under his body to do a push up or reach for the ropes and the referee would say he tapped out.

    i know the 🤬 is fake and it's the extra added drama to the match, but most of the time you can tell if the dude is tapping or reaching and they always say he was tapping.

    the most memorable time this happened was in ECW when Taz locked the Tazmission on Bam Bam Bigelow on the outside ramp, and Bam Bam was reaching for the ropes and the referee said he tapped out and rang the bell. Bam Bam was legitimately reaching for the ropes because when that bell rang, his arms were outstretched and he was visibly 🤬 . Again, I know it's fake. Shane Douglas was doing the commentary and was so 🤬 he threw a monitor down from the announcing balcony down into the crowd and kept yelling "🤬 !!!! 🤬 !!!! 🤬 !!!! 🤬 !!!! 🤬 !!!!"

    check it out starting at 3:40, but 🤬 , the entire match was a beast.
