La Rosa

From Luchawiki

La Rosa (the Rose) is both the name of a lucha move and the name used by at least one female wrestler.

  • La Rosa was one half of the Mexican National Women's Tag Team Championship when it was last active.
    • Rosa is also a common partial nickname, and there's a current CMLL undercard ruda named Rosa Negra (believed to be unrelated)
  • La Rosa is also a move. The attacker puts his victim in a headlock and hammerlock while picking his legs off the mat. The attacker can cranks the arm and head to look for a submision, or drops to his knees to strain the victim's neck. The most famous current user of the move is Misterioso II, who uses an off the top rope variant of the move for his big finisher.
