A Huracarrana is a rollup, where the attacker jumps on the attacker's shoulders and pulls them backwards into a cradle. It's a trademark lucha libre move. Huracanrans have be done off the top rope, to the floor, and any place where an attacker can drop down onto a victim. By definition, a Huracanrana ends in as a pin, but versions where the attacker does not hold are still considered huracarranas.

Can be spelled Huracarrana or Huracanrana. The name comes from it's inverter, Huracan Ramirez (Daniel Garcia). The ending pin is called a rana in lucha libre, so Ramirez special pinning move became known as the Huracanrana. Rey Misterio Jr. brought this move to prominence in the United States.

The Huracarrana can be done as a diving move, a slingshot move, a springboard move, or an off the top rope move.

Frankensteiner

The move (or a similar variation) is known as a frankensteiner in the US after Scott Steiner. The frankensteiner does not end into rana.

Like the Huracarrana, the frankensteiner can be done as a diving move, a slingshot move, a springboard move, or an off the top rope move.

Reverse Huracarrana

A reverse variation exists where the attacker jumps on the attacker's shoulders in an electric chair position pulling them backwards down onto their face and chest or head. This variation does not end in a rana as well.

Like the Huracarrana, the reverse frankensteiner has can be done as a springboard move (as popularized by Octagón Jr.) or an off the top rope move.
