5. The Shooting Star Press

It is so difficult to execute this move that even an angle was built around the concept. Billy Kidman and Paul London started a rivalry over Kidman’s fear of hurting other wrestlers using the maneuver which eventually resulted in a BK heel turn on SmackDown in the mid 2000s.

But the most famous botch involving the Shooting Star press happened at the main event of WrestleMania 19 where Brock Lesnar was supposed to hit the same on the then WWE Champion Kurt Angle. Lesnar couldn’t move his 290 pound frame across the ring so as to connect cleanly with Angle and the finish was botched, not to mention Lesnar getting a concussion.

The two thought on their feet to finish up the match, but the damage had been done.
