Fake Wrestling Moves
Want to know what some of the best fakr wrestling moves are? Professional wrestling requires athletes that are highly skilled and in excellent physical condition. Some of the moves these athletes use are real, some are fake wrestling moves. It is important to remember that even the fake wrestling moves, if not executed properly, can cause serious injury.
- Piledriver. A properly executed piledriver can look real and painful, but it is one of the fake wrestling moves that these athletes learn how to execute at a young age. When you watch a piledriver being executed, you will notice that the wrestler's head is just above the knees of the person executing the move. When the wrestler is brought down to the mat, very little of the top of his head actually makes contact with the mat.
- Choke slam. One of the more macho professional wrestling moves is to put a choke hold on someone's neck, lift him in the air and slam him to the mat. It looks great, but it is a fake wrestling move. When you watch the move being performed you will see the wrestler getting slammed grab on to the hand around his throat and jump in the air to create the slam.
- Head-butt. People watching a head-butt can sometimes think it is real because it happens so fast. The next time you see a professional wrestler execute a head-butt, notice that he places his hands on either side of his opponent's head so that his thumbs meet at the middle of the opponent's forehead. The person executing the move then head-butts his thumbs and never makes contact with the other person's head.
- Punching. Punching looks real in professional wrestling, but it is actually a two-part fake wrestling move. The first part is that the person delivering the punch either misses the mark completely, or punches down on the opponent's chin so that he actually makes contact with the chest and not the chin. To make it look real, the person delivering the punch stomps his foot at each contact to make people feel as though a real punch is being thrown.
- Eye poking. Believe it or not, professional wrestling borrows a little bit from the Three Stooges when they use the eye-poking move. The wrestler delivering the poke actually pokes immediately above the eyes and not directly into the eyes. If you watch professional wrestlers, and the Three Stooges, closely you can see where Moe makes contact to Curly's forehead in the same way that wrestlers do. But don't kid yourself, it takes a lot of practice to get it right and avoid really poking someone in the eye.
