5 most dangerous wrestling moves in WWE

#4 The German Suplex


The German Suplex is inspired from amateur wrestling. The move was invented by Karl Gotch, who was a German wrestler, and it was popularized by Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit and Brock Lesnar. As a matter of fact, Lesnar's famous catchphrase 'Suplex City' comes from his German Suplexes in the squared circle.

Considering the recipient could land on the neck, it is extremely dangerous. While the move might look safe visually, repeated use of it could be hazardous for both parties. The German Suplex involves the performer throwing his opponent backwards while clutching them from behind by the waist. Edge suffered an injury in his prime when he wrestled Benoit and Angle. Lesnar generally uses it in his matches, but his incredible grip strength allows him to execute the move flawlessly.

#3 Diving double foot stomp


The Diving double foot stomp is a high-flying wrestling move, and several high-flyers use it. Shinsuke Nakamura confessed that the move feels like getting stabbed in the chest for the receiver. It is the finishing move of the current Intercontinental Champion, Finn Balor, who calls it the Coup de Grace.

Though it is not particularly hazardous for the attacking wrestler, the move could be devastating for the receiver. A wrestler jumps from the top turnbuckle and lands on the chest of the receiver. While performing this move, a wrestler must carry out as little force as possible, and the position of the impact should be accurate. The move could cause serious damage to the receiver if it is not executed correctly.
