German Suplex

From Luchawiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A suplex from a waistlock position. In Mexico, it's mostly done with a bridge (and so, called suplex olimpico for the bridge portion), though the attacker can also drop or toss the opponent. It's a rare power move for Mexico, perhaps because that sort of impact on a hard lucha libre ring is not a good idea in the long run.

In CMLL, Diamante Azul uses it as his main finishing move. Mini Abismo Negro and Okumura also use the move. Taurus (AAA) uses a variation out of a rolling reverse cradle as his main finisher.
