#4 Shooting Star Press

The shooting star press is one of the most popular aerial moves in professional wrestling. Just a little mistake and the move could lead to a serious concussion and a broken neck if not performed correctly. It takes a long time to perfect the move and make it look special. Several wrestlers make it look easy and some failed to do the same.

Shane McMahon botched the move at 2001's King of the Ring where he landed on a trash can and Brock Lesnar botched the move at WrestleMania XIX due to a miscalculation where he landed on his head in his match against Kurt Angle. This caused for WWE to ban the move as it was considered dangerous.

The move was later brought back by WWE when Evan Bourne signed with the company and proved that he could perform the move correctly. Till today the shooting star press is still used in WWE by one of its cruiserweight wrestlers Lince Dorado.
