Move of the Week | 12th-19th December
Springboard Lariat

This nifty move was pulled out during a tag team match on SmackDown!, which saw Kofi Kingston and Kaval pick up the victory over Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler. Although this wasn’t the match winning move, Kofi’s spingboard lariat added heaps of entertainment to the contest. Perhaps it was so good due to the fact that Kaval had just managed to get the tag in on Kofi, or maybe it was due to the sheer height Kingston got to before pulling it off. When it comes to flying around the ring, no-one does it better than Kofi, and no matter what you say, Dolph Ziggler is a perfect seller in this instance.

Other contenders

Kaval’s Standing Double Foot Stomp– The move isn’t necessarily amazing, but the set up to it is just that. Kaval reverses the Gutwrench Powerbomb into a Sunset Flip followed by a quick Standing Double Foot Stomp to the sternum.
Bully Ray’s Bully Bomb– Amazing Red makes this move look so good, thanks to his awesome sell of the finisher.
Randy Orton’s Olympic Slam– Adopted from the great Kurt Angle, Randy pulls off a nice variation of this move.
