Shooting Star Press is a complicated move invented by Justin Thunder Liger. In this move, the wrestler jumps forward from an elevated position and presses his knees to his chest, executing a backflip and lands on the opponent as if performing a body press. As this move is considered dangerous, it has been banned several times because it can be botched easily and it can cause injury to both the competitors.
Here is a list of wrestlers who have proved their mastery in this move and have performed it tremendously.
#5 Mark Andrews
Perhaps the youngest one to make it to this list, Andrews is an amazing wrestler who has achieved a lot at a very young age. He is one of the most prominent high-flyers of the 205 Live division.
