Popularized by: Randy Savage
Move type: High Flyer
“OOOO YEAH!” Randy Savage was that rare wrestler who had everything. The look. The mic skills. The technical ability. He famously rehearsed his legendary match with Ricky Steamboat, move-for-move, prior to Wrestlemania III. And Savage’s flying elbow is a textbook example of how a wrestler can go hard, by taking a very simple, basic move and turning it into a devastating, iconic work of art. Savage got incredible height and hang time on the elbow, and he wound it up, mid-air, to give it that little extra kick.
