Popularized by: Legion of Doom
Move type: Tag

The Legion of Doom is to wrestling what Kiss is to music. The spiked shoulder pads, the painted faces, the gritty catchphrases—it made them the perfect anti-heroes in a world filled with braggarts. And their finishing move, the Doomsday Device, was straight up dangerous. The flying clothesline did not just throw the victims onto the mat. It flipped them, head over heels. The timing required to do this safely was insane, which is probably why performers rarely go this hard today. But that extra flip made this move iconic through sheer brutality and flair. “OooooowhataRUSHHH!”
