In the world of professional wrestling, most moves that people find themselves watching in awe are performed from the top rope. They are the moves that get the most attention, but what about the second rope? Not many people talk about some of the entertaining moves that have been pulled off from using the second rope instead of the top rope.

Here we look at 5 famous moves pulled off using the second rope.


Honorable Mention: Springboard Corkscrew Uppercut

This is a move that has been made famous by Cesaro recently. The move essentially involves a wrestler springboarding off the middle rope and perform a corkscrew midair and deliver the European Uppercut to the other wrestler. If executed perfectly like Cesaro does, the move is a thing of beauty to watch. It looks devastating enough too.

Due to the complexity involved with the execution of the move, it is hard for a wrestler to pull off the move without botching it. He needs to be flexible and mobile enough to perform a corkscrew midair and at the same time navigate the distance between him and his opponent. 

Kalisto has an alternated version of the move. Kalisto performs a bodyslam instead of the uppercut.
