Popularized by: Rey Mysterio
Move type: Strike

This was the original, “go hard” move that made Rey famous—the swinging kick through the top two ropes always got the crowd popping. But unfortunately, Rey doesn’t do the second part of the move anymore; the force of the scissors takedown has completely destroyed his knees. We still have a few video clips of the original move, and instead of being disappointed that Rey stopped performing it, we should be thankful that he ever performed it at all. Its technique and risk factor seemed nearly inhuman.
